Liberty North High School Band
Welcome to the Liberty North Band web site!
This site is a hub for schedules, events, notifications, and documents. The site will be updated frequently, so please check back often.
Dr. Doss and Matt Allison presented a trip update meeting in February. The information presented is available on the Florida 2023 page in the embedded Drive folder.
Approximately half of students will fly American, the other half on Southwest. Because American has baggage fees that Southwest does not, the decision was made to evenly distribute those fees across all students on the trip. This will be about $30 each. This can be paid using individual account funds. When the time comes to collect the fees, we will send out a Remind. Parents and family members who are not in band will have to pay their own fees.
There will be another MANDATORY trip meeting scheduled in April or May to iron out final details.
For instrument transport, a box truck will be rented and paid by the Boosters. Parents have volunteered to drive. However, if you are interested in driving, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to have a list of parents willing to drive the truck both ways, who would be willing to fly out and drive back, and who would be willing to drive out and fly back in case plans change.
Incoming Freshman Parent Events:
An info session was held prior to the lock in on February 24. A team of parents created a 'handbook' for incoming freshman parents with things we wished we'd known when our own children were freshman.
We are going to be hosting 2 informal parent social hours in the coming months. Our intent is to provide you with a chance to meet other parents, ask additional questions of us, and just start to meet some other parents. It is helpful to get to know a few people to help with things like rides, etc.
Thursday, April 13, 6 PM. Location TBD
Thursday, May 4, 6 PM. Location TBD
Please sign up for the Band Booster Reminds to get updates and to communicate with the group!

Upcoming Trip Payments
For individual account payments for the trip: We collect the payment request forms, then submit a request to Eagle Club to issue a check to the travel agent. We allow two weeks for Eagle Club to review/issue the check, then we assume 2 weeks for the check to be delivered to Bob Rogers travel. Therefore, we ask for the forms to be submitted 4 weeks before the due date to be included in that month's payment. Once Bob Rogers deposits the check, Dr. Doss credits the correct amount to your Bob Rogers account balance. We can only issue a payment for the amount that is actually in your account on the day we submit the request -we understand this is a challenge sometimes because the Royals payments are not immediately available (see below). It is important to realize that the dates proposed by Bob Rogers for payment due dates are suggestions - there is no penalty if you cannot make a full payment one month or roll it all into one payment the next. The only requirement is that the full balance must be paid-in-full by the final date (April 13, 2023).
Here are the dates for submitting forms for the upcoming payments:
Payment due April 13: Submit form by Friday, March 17
Forms can be emailed to email@example.com
