There are 3 entrances off of Chambersburg Road, but you'll want to enter the one that falls between the Performing Arts Center and the softball field.  Once you enter the Wayne High School campus, my bus greeter, Adam Daniels, will be guiding you to a parking spot and providing you with a Welcome Package.  This same individual will also be available to address any questions/concerns you might have.  The Welcome Package contains lots of small items that may come in handy such as bobby pins, paper and pen, kleenex, hand sanitizer, etc., but the most important thing will be wrist bands for the chaperones which provides free admission for them.
