Please click here to register.

Dear RUHS Band and Dance Guard Member and Parent,

Welcome to an exciting new year!  Here are some important dates...
Rehearse-a-thon Sept 27 9am-1pm (mandatory) - come prepared to march.

Please do the following required items as soon as possible:

1. Register your Band or Dance Guard member on the www.ruhsbandboosters.org website - so we can get you on our email list for notifications (link below)
2. Make an appointment with your Band or Dance Guard member's physician - need to schedule a physical for Athletic clearance
The process for registering for athletic clearance and transportation has gone paperless. Now parents can submit clearances and pay fees from anywhere.

There have been a few changes to the process. Due to the unique needs of each program, as well as the varying size of athletic programs each season, transportation contributions are now based on semester/seasonal activities as opposed to year-long programs. Medical clearances (physicals) are valid for 1 calendar year and should be updated on an annual basis.  
This link will you to the new athletic web page where all students are to register for athletic clearance and transportation contributions:

Step 1: Click on the link below

Step 2: Click “REGISTRATION”
Step 3: Click the Tab “Create an Account”
Step 4: After creating an account, click Marching Band or Color Guard and proceed"

4. Sign up for volunteer opportunities like Car Washes, Symphony Concessions - helps offset the cost of Band and Dance Guard fees (signup sheets in the Band room)

Websites you should definitely frequent/visit
