Fees for Marching Band

The Marching Band Fee of $685 per student is payable in five payments. This fee covers expenses related to uniforms, flags, props, equipment, transportation, food, contest entry fees and staff. Gloves, shoes, socks (if not provided by parent), mallets/sticks, and other expendable items are billed separately and may also be assessed to your student’s account as needed.

If you need to make other arrangements, please just let us know as soon as possible. We CAN work something out with you. Accelerated payments are always accepted. Fundraising opportunities will be available for you and your student, which can be used to help defray expenses. Visit our Personal Fundraising page to learn more about opportunities to earn money toward your student’s band account.

Commitment Form

New in 2018 each student and parent need to sign a commitment form prior to the beginning of the season. Once that commitment form is received the student will be required to pay the full fee for the season, regardless of the reason for withdrawal. The only exception is withdrawal due to injury.

If your child sustains an injury during the season that requires he/she to sit out the rest of the season, he/she is eligible for a partial refund. To request this reimbursement, the student must provide the FHS Band Directors with a physician’s statement that proves the student’s injury or illness prevents his or her continued participation within 30 days of the student’s injury or illness. This reimbursement is limited to any unused funds which were paid directly by the student or his or her parents. After a request for a refund is received in writing by the SAR, the director and the board will decide on an amount to be refunded. The amount refunded will be dependent on the percentage of the season that is left, and the amount of money already invested in the student for instruction, food, uniform, etc.

Requests for refunds must be made in writing to the SAR by within 30 days of the last day of school (for graduating seniors.) and within 30 days of an injury. Please include who the check should be made to and the address to which the check should be mailed. Please allow 14 business days for processing and payment. Read full Student Account Policy
