    CHAPERONE CLEARANCES - Parents interested in chaperoning football games or band trips, or helping with band events that would put them in contact with students, must submit clearances to the LD School District and wear a district-provided Volunteer Badge.  Visit the District website for details.
     
    FUNDRAISING SCHEDULE - Dates and events are subject to change, but we hope to provide lots of opportunities for students to earn money to cover their band expenses, including the Disney Trip being planned for 2023!
     
    PAYMENTS Please make payments to the Band Boosters in the form of CHECKS or MONEY ORDERS so that they are traceable and more secure.  The Boosters cannot accept cash payments.  Payments should be placed in an envelope marked with the student’s name and what it is for.  Make checks payable to LDBB and include the order form if necessary.  Place the envelopes in the locked filing cabinet in the HS Band Room (when school is in session). Contact Treasurer Tanya Dreon at tldreon@gmail.com with questions or to check your Student Account Balance.
     
    BOOSTER MEETINGS -  Booster meetings are usually held the second Tuesday of each month, though they may switch to Mondays or Wednesdays in winter to line up with Indoor Drumline practices. There will NOT be a regular Booster meeting in May as the Executive Committee will be meeting to prepare next year's Budget.  Meetings are open to the public, and all band parents are encouraged to attend.  Minutes and Treasurer Reports from previous meetings are posted on this website. 
     
    CONTACT You can email the Band Booster Secretary Susan Seacord at ldbbsecretary@gmail.com.
