Band Camp:


The cost of band camp is $75.  This includes meals, snacks, water and other items necessary to keep your student safe and healthy in the heat.  The camp fee is due the first day of full Band Camp – July 30, 2018.  Band Camp is a mandatory fee.

Fair Share: Each band member must pay for his or her fair share of band costs.  The cost for 2018 is $130 and covers one t-shirt, truck rental, and our additional band staff.  The Fair Share is due the first full day of Band Camp – July 30, 2018.  Fair Share is a mandatory fee (a payment plan is available if necessary).



Field Trip: 

A $50 Field Trip Fee needs to be paid to the bookstore at Coronado High School by August 7, 2018.  If you choose, this $50 fee may be claimed as school tax credit on your income tax return, but must be paid by each student regardless of whether or not you choose to claim it as a tax credit. This fee helps cover contest registration and transportation costs.  Due at registration are also class fees.  The class fee for marching band is $40 and the class fees for Percussion, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble are $20 a semester. The class fees cover new music, software, and other purchases. Class fees are paid at registration.


Instrument Rental:  All students who use school instruments will need to pay a $50 usage fee for each school instrument used.  This fee is paid in the Coronado Bookstore.  Students who qualify for free and reduced lunch can have the rental fee waive. Instruments cannot be checked out until the required form is filled out and signed and the fee paid or the waiver signed. This fee can be paid now to enable student to check out instrument for the summer, but must be paid prior to band camp in order to use an instrument for band camp.
