Registration and Rental Forms
2022-2023 WSHSB Tuition Fee Schedule

Instrument Rental Agreement
The Rental Agreement form is now fillable using your computer. Read under the registration form as to why this is the
preferred method.
If you currently have a band-owned instrument and want to continue renting it for the winter trimester, the fee for trimester instrument rental is $40. The forms and fees need to be included with your registration. ADULT HELPERS MUST ALSO COMPLETE A RENTAL FORM EACH TRIMESTER IF USING A WSHSB OWNED INSTRUMENT.

2022-2023 Spring Trimester Registration Form
The link above is to a fillable PDF form. You may type in the information on the computer (much preferred for clarity), and then print it and sign where necessary. Less desirable is to print it out and fill it in by hand. Either way, mail it to the director or return it at band. DO NOT scan it and/or email it to the director.

                        Submit any rental form(s) and fee(s) along with your registration.

Once the registration form is posted you can complete most of the information. However, you need to wait for Booster jobs to be posted on November 21 at 7pm to complete that section of the form.
ATTENTION ADULT HELPERS - All adult helpers should complete and submit a registration form. Also, if you have a band-loaned instrument you must complete a rental form for your (free) loaner.

You must do the following before completing your registration form.

See our Booster Page for all Job Descriptions and the link to the WSHSB Online Sign-Up Schedule.
FOR CONCERT TRIMESTERS - One parent must volunteer for at least
4 Booster positions/slots per trimester in which their student(s) is/are participating.
FOR THE SUMMER MARCHING TRIMESTER - One parent must volunteer for at least
2 Booster positions/slots for the marching trimester in which their student(s) is/are participating.
Jobs are first come first served. You must do BOTH point A and B.

              you are committing to do.
          B. In the Booster section of the Registration form you will need to initial that online
              sign-up has been completed.
              NOTE: Filling-in a job on the registration form without signing-up online IS NOT SUFFICIENT.
sign-up is MANDATORY. The form merely echoes what you signed-up for online but
              does not fulfill the online sign-up requirement. Jobs remain open until online sign-up is
