General Football Game Procedures:
  • The band performs for pre-game and halftime
  • During the game, the band sits together in our own stands behind the north end zone
  • Band students stay together at all times until after varsity game is completed.
  • Only water is allowed while in uniform (no food or other drinks). Water will be provided after our pre-game and halftime performances by Band Booster parents.
  • After the game is completed, the band moves together back to the band room to change out of uniform. Uniforms should be hung up PROPERLY in uniform bags - this must be checked by a uniform mom before the student leaves.
  • Release time after games varies, however 10:00-10:15 pm is the norm. Students should exit/be picked up promptly following the game - no loitering around the band area/high school.
