Parent Release - New Procedure

A new procedure is in place at MCHS this year for releasing students to their parents following a band event (competition, parade, etc). You no longer need to fill out a paper form and return it to the office at school! Simply follow the link below to fill out an online form. The other bonus to this process is that it can be completed up to one day prior to an event (rather than 3 days prior with the old system).

This link is also permanently docked to the left of this page, under the picture.

Please follow this new procedure for all "away" band events this season/school year. Thank you for your help!
