If you drive yourself to West, you can park in the back lot on the pavement NOT the gravel lot. If you are dropping someone off, you may drop off near the back of the school.
Please note that we are not inviting parents to attend this rehearsal in an attempt to keep spectators out due to social distancing guidelines. I appreciate your understanding!
I am planning to take a photograph of every individual senior member that is present. We will take these on the turf and I will send the photos to each senior family individually for you to have a keepsake of your child in their full uniform on the turf.
We will have a videographer and photographer present as well to record the performance and take group photos throughout the rehearsal.
