If, for some reason, we have to leave early because of weather issue, we’ll make sure the kids call you on our way back so you can arrange to pick them up. Right now, it looks like it shouldn’t start raining until 5pm, when we are scheduled to leave.

Make sure your students have some extra cash for food/drinks/games. We recommend at least $20 to $40. A list of Six Flags’s policies can be found here.

We encourage everyone to wear their band shirts, as it’ll be easier for us to spot everyone!
