Permission slip

Everyone must turn in a field trip form!

To/From LAX

  • To LAX (Tuesday): We will take a bus from the high school to LAX on Tuesday morning.
  • From LAX (Sunday): For the return trip on Sunday, you must pick up your student from LAX or make arrangements with another family for carpool. Please make sure your daughter is aware of the way she is getting home. We all need to be on the same page. Thanks for your help.

Flight Information

Rental Cars

We will be renting vans from Enterprise to transport the Guard from Indianapolis to Dayton, and then to rehearsal sites, meals, competition, and everything in between. Dr. Ewoldsen, Christy Stephen, Michael Stephen, and Sandy Miller have all been cleared by the District to drive students.

Rehearsal Site in Indianapolis

Franklin Central High School
6215 S. Franklin Rd.

The hotel has asked that the girls use the make-up wipes in the rooms vs. the washcloths.

Finals Tickets

We have purchased tickets for World Class Finals on Saturday evening. We will pick them up and distribute on Saturday. All other events that we watch will be free with the wristband that we receive as a group upon check-in.

Spending Money

We suggest about $200 for food and souvenirs. Please talk to your daughter about your expectations and spending.


We will be pretty flexible when it comes to meals. We are not on a “tour type” schedule, but will need to be at rehearsals and performances on time. Please encourage your daughter to share her preferences.

It is a suggestion that the girls bring something to snack on during the flight since we leave at 10:25am and will land at dinner time. It’s about a four-hour flight… but please don’t pack any liquids!
