Travel Insurance Information
Band students are free to go with any travel insurance provider ... click here for a PDF brochure of the insurance our travel agent recommends. If anyone has any insurance questions, please refer to the 800 number on the brochure.
All passengers (including chaperones and directors) who opt not to purchase insurance, must sign the waiver (click here). All waivers must be returned to Mr. Beach or Mr. Allen 4 weeks prior to the trip departure date. Students must have a legal guardian sign the waiver on their behalf.

Dear Band Families,
It is a requirement that you log into the new Charms data system the band has implemented. You may do so at www.charmsoffice.com.

Charms has many wonderful features including the ability to track the funds in your student’s account. Please take the time to log in at your earliest convenience to complete your student’s information as well as parent/guardian contact information. This information is critical for the band directors to access so it is imperative that you do so before the school year begins on August 25th!

We encourage that Parents track their child's academic progress using the PARENT PORTAL, to ensure the participation of all students in band activities.
The PARENT PORTAL is at: https://teams.episd.org/selfserve/EntryPointHomeAction.do?parent=true. Once in the site, click on 'Notifications' and set when you want system-originated messages about your child's attendance, daily assignment grades, as well as current grading cycle averages. This action will help you identify possible problems by receiving notifications if your child's grades drop below the average you choose.
