Procedures

-Students must be ON TIME, in uniform,  and participate fully in the entire game to receive full credit for the performance grade.

-NO STUDENT may change ANY part of their clothing in the hallway. Please use the restrooms.  It doesn’t matter that you have other layers of clothing underneath.

-Band students will play cheers in the stands for the entire game.  Make sure you have a folio with all of your stand music when you go out to the field.  It is our role at a football game to make a positive contribution to the atmosphere and help energize the crowd.  Pay attention to the cheers that are called and perform with energy and enthusiasm.

-Cell phones are NOT permitted during the football game.  If a student is caught using a cell phone, it will be confiscated and returned at the end of the game.

-Water will be available for band and guard members during the game.  Students are NOT allowed to go to concessions, have anyone go to concessions for them, or bring food of any kind.  We will NOT be eating in the brand new Class A uniforms, so we will establish these rules this week.

-Students who need to use the restroom during the game will ask a staff member for permission to leave the stands.  Please do not loiter behind the main stands on the way.

-Band and guard parents are welcome to sit in the north bleachers with the band as space allows.

-Guard members will perform Pre-game and pom through the first quarter.  They will go inside to change costume and collect field show equipment during the 2nd quarter.  After halftime, they will bring field show equipment in, quickly change back into Class A, and pom the 4th quarter.

-At the end of the game, many hands make light work! Hang your uniform correctly and have it checked before putting it on the rack.  You will lose points if your uniform is not hung correctly.  Please put all of your equipment away and TAKE YOUR INSTRUMENT/FLAG HOME to practice over the weekend.  Please don’t leave the band or choir room in disarray.

-Parents are needed for uniform duty both at the beginning and at the end of the game.  If you are coming to watch the show, please come in and lend a hand.  We really want to take great care of the brand new uniforms and there’s no way we can do it without help!
