Please see important information regarding safety and security at MSD:

-Every student must wear their school ID during the entire tournament (except while performing in competition rounds, IDs should be put back on after performing).

-All students will go through an MSD security check before going to the assigned holding room on the MSD campus (usually the auditorium or directly to the cafeteria).

-Buses will pick you up in the same bus loop where they drop you off on the south side of the school, NOT in the north parking lot. Parents CANNOT pick up their students in the south bus loop, students should only be picked up by a parent outside the North or East gates. -Parent judges who are not riding the bus with you need to arrive at Stoneman Douglas between 1:30 and 2:00. They'll park in the North senior parking lot off of Holmberg Rd. They need to avoid parking in the area marked in red on the attached map. DO NOT park where the band practices. Parents will then be escorted to the single point of entry to check in and get a visitor sticker/badge, and then to the media center to check in as judges.

-Judges/Coaches should not be propping any gate or escorting parents onto campus after the tournament has begun, all visitors should have come through security during the prearranged time.

-Coaches should escort students being picked up to the North and East gates, parents should not come through any gates to pick up their student.

 

More information may be sent out as the tournament approaches. Please let your mentor know if you have any questions.
