    Transportation

    Please note families are responsible for transportation to the band or orchestra site school. Bus transportation will be provided from the site school to your home elementary school. 

    Elementary Band and Orchestra is not held on non-school days, including late starts or emergency closures.

    Cost

    There is no fee to participate in LWSD’s elementary band or orchestra, however students will need to provide their own instrument. The main cost will be renting an instrument.
     
    For families where cost might be a barrier to participation, program sites have a limited amount of instruments available for rent. Families that qualify for free/reduced lunch are given first priority. Please contact the band or orchestra coordinator at your student’s assigned site if you have any questions regarding instrument rentals.
