We truly hope that all of you continue to play your instrument and be part of the Highland Orchestra program. Our music making will take us on some terrific journeys this year. We look forward to working with you and a fine year of music making.Rehearsals begin at 7:45 sharp.Parents, please be sure to drop your young musician off in the am in an expeditious manner. Be sure to use just one parking spot so there is enough room for all. Also please email me if your young musicians will be absent from rehearsal. This is a safety issue. Thanks for your understanding and support
Musically yours,.

Important announcement
To assure the safety of our young musicians, parents please drop your young musician off for morning rehearsals at the door just east of the main entrance off of Rockland Road. Please do not remain parked as many young musicians and students need to enter the building as quickly as possible
Morning Rehearsals -- Safe Student Drop-Off
The safety of all students and staff is very important. All students should be dropped off in the front of the building near the bike racks/baseball diamond. Students should enter the building through the recess cafeteria door. This entrance will be locked and monitored by music staff. It is not safe for students to be dropped off in the parking lot at the back of the school (Lincoln Ave). It is also not safe for students to walk through this parking lot. Drop off time is between 7:30 and 7:45 AM. Students arriving after 7:45 will need to enter through the main office. If your child needs to be dropped off before 7:30 AM, please contact us to discuss options. Again, the safety of the students and staff is our highest priority. Thank you for your cooperation and attention to drop off procedure.
