Thank for all the positive encourage and appreciation concerning the Winter Winds and our trip to Dayton. This is a brand new activity to WHS and the State of Missouri. We hope you have enjoyed this season as much as the students!
I am attaching a parent rooming link for Dayton. This is the hotel that the students are staying in, but you are NOT required to stay here. There are many hotels in the vicinity. This is just a courtesy link from the hotel.

The tickets to watch your students perform is filling up fast. To buy those tickets in advance please go to wgi.org/winds/world-championships-winds/ and select tickets.
We are wanting to have a parent meeting the week after spring break. This will be a required meeting to educate and plan for the Dayton trip.
Please note that we will NOT be staying in Springfield to save money for the trip. If you are attending the contest and want to stay that is no problem. You will need to sign out your student with us. That will be a late night for us that night. We have not received a schedule for that day, but mccga.org will have the schedule as soon as it is posted.
O'Fallon Township Information
Make sure you are on the remind. All changes and announcements will be made through this app.
Entry into WHS has now changed. We are no longer allowed to enter through the normal band doors as we were in the past. Please enter through the eastern gym doors (where you can enter during a basketball game.) Since a basketball event will be taking place today there will be someone at the desk. Politely say you are with the band and it shouldn't be a problem.
In the future there will be a window of time that you can enter into the school. Luckily not today!
The itinerary, Remind Information, Reminders that are posted in the Band Room are below.
PARENTS: Make sure you are on the remind too, in case of any changes
