Families and visitors who are dropping off ensemble students before 6 p.m. are invited to meet in the front lobby and Gallery of the Schoolhouse. At 6 p.m. we welcome all parents into the Downing. At 6:20 p.m. we ask families/visitors to find their seats, so students may line up for the processional.

Concert Seating
Pre-k and kindergarten families will sit with their families after their performance.
Grades 1-8 families may sit anywhere in the gym, except the rows reserved for pre-k and kindergarten families, and for classes. Seating is first-come, first-served.

Departure
Following the concert, students may be picked up from their assigned meeting spaces (see above.)

After School Students
Students who are usually enrolled in after school on Thursdays and who will not be going home before the concert will be supervised by the after school staff until their usual pick-up time at 5:30 p.m. A pizza dinner will be provided. If your child cannot eat this meal, please pack a bag dinner. Families should plan to bring their child’s concert dress so that they can change before going to their assigned meeting spaces. Families are responsible for supervising their children from 5:30 until either 5:45 or 6 p.m. (see scheduled arrival times above.)

Please make sure you inform the after school team if your child is staying until 5:30 p.m. and will be eating pizza.

A Note About Weather
If there is significant snow on the evening of the event, we may have to postpone the concert. We will use our ConnectEd communications platform to inform you should we need to reschedule.
