Instrument Use Fees
Students using school instruments (all percussionists and various woodwinds and brass) are asked to pay $50 towards the regular maintenance of
their instrument. Since percussionists use many different instruments through marching and concert seasons, they are asked to pay $50 each semester. Wind and
brass players who use school instruments in both marching and concert seasons (tuba for example: sousaphone for marching and concert tuba for concert
band) are also asked to pay $50 per semester. This is far cheaper than renting a tuba (or other instrument) monthly through a store.
The $50 does not cover damage to instruments outside of normal use. Normal use does not include dropping, collisions, lack of proper
maintenance (oiling of valves, etc.), or general carelessness (i.e. left in vehicle in hot sun). See the Instrument Check-Out Form for more information.
- Percussion: $50 per semester
- Mellophones, Baritones, Sousaphones: $50
- Marching Woodwinds: $50 Fall
- Concert Instrument Check-Out: $50 Spring

Payment of Fair Share and Assessments
We accept several forms of payment of fair share and assessments:
- SchoolPay- Preferred Method of Payment
- Check (Make out to West Orange High School, and please write the student's name and purpose of payment on memo line.)
- Money orders
We recognize that these are hard financial times for many families, and while we cannot function without adequate funding we do not want such
financial efforts to prevent a student's participation in band. Communication is key. We offer a payment plan (see top of page) that students and parents may use
to commit to paying assessments little by little at regular intervals throughout the year. This lets us know you understand the obligation
but are unable to pay the full amount when due, and that you are willing to help us by making small payments.
For questions regarding your account, fees, or other financial matters, please contact our treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Include the student name
in the message.
