BAND App Signup
We use the BAND app as our primary communication tool in addition to email. It allows us to communicate with parents regarding general information, schedule updates and all band events including performance nights, game days, competiton days, and festivals. We also post files, pictures and links to parent volunteer opportunities in the BAND app. It is important for all band parents to sign-up to the Dakota Band Parents BAND app to receive important announcements. In addition, there are BAND App Groups for students/parents involved in extra-curricular band activities.
You can Download the App to your phone and/or access the BAND App website directly online via your web browser at band.us. Once you click to join, your membership to the group will be pending until verified and approved.
