Will my band student be able to stay in the room with me if I am going on the trip?
Only students who have a medical condition that is recognized by Taylor ISD may stay in their parent's room. We ask that these students adhere to band curfews and other policies set forth by the directors.
 
Will there be a meeting for parents attending the trip?
Yes, now that we have a better idea of how many adults All American Tours is reserving rooms for, we can begin the hotel search. Once more info is put out. A meeting will be scheduled. Please keep in mind that there are 115 students and directors. And, there are close to 50 parents and family members planning to attend. 
 
Will the band directors provide transportation for parents?
No, parents will need to coordinate with each other if needed.
 
Will the band directors assign parents to room with other parents?
We can provide a list of parents attending. However, we will not be contacting parents and coordinating room assignments. 
 
How much money was made on the SNAP Fundraiser?
After SNAP took out their fees, the band and guard made $7895.41. Please keep in mind that we always need to use fundraiser money to operate the band and guard during the Spring semester. So, not all of the SNAP money can go toward Orlando transportation.
