    Disclaimer: All violins and violas that do not belong to the school should not be left in the orchestra room after school, they should be taken home. Furthermore, every instrument case should be labeled with the students name, address or phone number. Other people are in and out of the orchestra room after school and it is not a secure place to store your instrument, and if it is lost the school will assume no responsibility. Please take your instruments home!

    Parents must pick up students at HHS only after the luggage truck arrives with the band. Be advised, the truck might not arrive until 5:30 or 6:00pm, and the orchestra students will likely arrive back to HHS around 4:30-5:00. Unfortunately, all students must wait at the HS until the truck arrives to unload, and it could be an hour or so, so please wait to pick them up.
