Important Information for the DMS Music Festival

The musical performance portion of the DMS Music Festival will run on Friday, June 1, RAIN OR SHINE. Performances will be held at the middle school and then we will proceed to Six Flags. If weather conditions do not allow us to go to the park, each student and chaperone will be issued a Six Flags ticket good for any day during the 2018 season. The music directors will make a decision based on the weather conditions that day. If it rains students will report back to class at 11:00 a.m. and they will take their regular buses home.
