General Information

                                     Handbook Changes Coming
We are finishing up the Handbook changes.
The old Handbook is being divided into two parts:
The first part will still be called the Handbook but will be a shorter document containing only those points which need to be read, understood and agreed to by band members and their families, requiring a signed Handbook Agreement.
The second part will be a WSHSB Reference Guide and contain most of the remaining information from the current handbook. We will let you know when this update/change is complete.
