Parking at Edgewater HS: High School drivers should drop off and/or park in the student parking lot which is located on the North side of campus by the Gymnasium. Enter campus via the Par St. traffic light along Edgewater Drive. They are looking for a 4-way intersection that has landmarks such as Ollie’s Public House, Dubsdread Golf Course, and ABC Liquor, along with the main entrance to the school of course. If they follow the driveway to the right, it will wind around to the student parking lot. Signs will then direct all HS students from that lot to their respective rehearsal rooms.

WOHS Hosts ICCA
On Saturday, January 27, ten to twelve collegiate a cappella groups will be coming to West Orange, as we host the quarterfinals round for the International Championships of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). Noise Complaint participates in the high school version of this, aka ICHSA. As we host this event, we are looking for willing and able student and parent volunteers to help us on that Saturday from approximately 7:30 am to 11:30 pm (times will be specified as details are confirmed). Volunteers will be assisting stage/auditorium set up (including loading in/out fragile and heavy technical equipment), directing traffic as performers and audience arrives, picking up and selling concessions, stage managing the show (catering to each group), hosting the judges panel, and many more! For anyone with experience or interest, please contact Mr. Yasay by Friday, January 19th by 8pm (firstname.lastname@example.org). This is the first time we are hosting an event like this so we are looking for volunteers who will set the standard and show what West Orange is about! Thank you in advance for your consideration!
