BSR physicals
This just in! Wednesday, June 18 @ 3:00pm
All members of the Blue Star Regiment are required to have a medical clearance (physical exam) before participating in band camp! Mr. Jackson does not have any information about the reason this policy has been implemented, why there is a cost for a required school district item, or what the money paid is used for. You may use your own doctor for the exam if you cannot be on campus Wednesday.

The date for on campus physicals through the Sport Clinic is Wed, June 18 at 3pm in the Health Office. The cost is $20 cash (normally $30 at the Sport Clinic). Copies of the physical packets are available in the guidance office and in the band room.  All portions of the physical packet must be completed in order to be cleared to participate. The forms should be returned to Mr. Breyer or Joann Muller in the counseling office. Do not return completed forms to Mr. Jackson or Mrs. Schive, or any booster parent.

Leader classes are scheduled as members are available.  All leadership candidates must be on the Facebook page or must check the calendars for changes. Many students have not posted their availability dates yet, but classes will be scheduled without your information so that others can plan accordingly.  On another note, with the audition process completed, the winner of next year's drum major position is Brett Whitchurch. Congratulations Brett!
