Band camp and medication information

Posted on July 21, 2015 at 3:50 PM

To all parents that have children with prescription medication needed at band camp: We need them to go to the Londonredraidersmusic.org website and print off the "London City Schools Physician's Request for the Administration of Medication by School Personnel" form.


It needs to be completed & signed by their doctor or nurse practitioner before your child can go to camp.


If the link above does not work, visit Londonredraidersmusic.org and click  the More tab, then Document tab, and then click on PHYSICIAN FORM FOR RX.


If your child is not taking any prescription meds, they do NOT need to complete this form.

If you do not have access to a printer, Mrs. Fugate has some copies printed out the forms and would like to give them to the students at practice tonight to have their parents/guardians complete & obtain a MD or CNP signature on this form.


I realize there is not much time for this, however, I need these forms completed PRIOR TO LEAVING FOR BAND CAMP.

Color Guard Clinics/Auditions

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 4:50 PM

We are in GREAT NEED of color guard (flag) members for the marching band.  The color guard provides color with flags/silks, drama with their movement/dance and intrigue with their drill and other equipment (such as rifles).  We need 10-15 members on the field and we are several people short at this time.  This activity is for males and females who are currently in 7th-11th grade.  Please encourage people you know who are not currently involed in the band to come to a clinic.  They would be joining a very successful organization and have a lot of fun!!!!  No experience is required to join.  We just need people who are interested in trying something new who will be dedicated to this growing, successful organization!!!
