All students have assignments on Friday to help. They can leave once we dismiss them on Friday night after the run through in the gym
Saturday: Every high school show choir member must be in the gym no later than 8:55 to cheer on Illusions and watch the first few choirs so that they feel welcomed and supported even though they have an early performance time. If you are a HOST, you must be there no later than 7:30 (or earlier if your group has so indicated).
From there...every student has a designated area to work on Saturday. Around that schedule, you must be prepared to fulfill our performance duties that day.
Jubilation and Cel Co. look at the performance time to see what time to be in the choir room to warm up for your exhibition performance.
Also, on Saturday, all show choir band, singers and crew will have a tear down assignment somewhere in the building. Once they are done, they should report to the gym (where the bulk of the tear down is happening...lights, sound, chairs, stage, equipment, etc...). From there we will check kids out.
It will likely be around midnight time frame, but that is not an exact science.
PLEASE MAKE SURE IF YOUR CHILD CANNOT DRIVE (or cannot drive late) THAT YOU MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THEM THAT DON'T INCLUDE HAVING TO LEAVE EARLY BECAUSE A PARENT WANTS OR NEEDS TO LEAVE.
We understand not all parents will stay to help, but all students are required to stay and help until we are done. We've talked to the kids about figuring out transportation if they can't drive, etc... EVERYBODY wants to go home, but it takes too long if everyone isn't helping.
Some parents that are going to be there early in the morning...don't feel like you have to stay late at night,,,but we do need your kids to stay until checkout.
We have told your kids that if they leave and don't check out, they will not compete at the next competition.
There is not a perfect, fair science to this clean up process, but one thing we do know is it goes faster when everyone is there.
Kids who are hosting a homeroom can leave after their room is clean.
Let me know if you have questions and thanks in advance for your help!!
