Planning Ahead

  • If you plan to bring more than 10 students, please invite a parent chaperone as well.
  • It is up to the students/teachers of each school to have a plan for lunch/dinner. There are a few places to eat nearby or students may bring a sack lunch. Quite a few teachers have also ordered pizza for students in the past which is both convenient and cheap.
  • Snacks will be provided by UNC.
  • Teachers are encouraged to be in the room during rehearsal times so clinicians can focus on the music instead of behavior, but feel free to bring a laptop and get some work done.
