Field Trip Rehearsal in the Stadium
Advisory - End of the day
You will be dismissed from advisory through the end of the day so please inform any 7th block teacher on Tuesday you will not be there on Thursday. You should eat during first lunch regardless of grade level and then immediately report to the field. Your attendance will be taken care of for you. Please make sure you wear something comfortable to march in.
In inclement weather, any changes & decisions will be made immediately before a performance.
Please assume any competition is continuing as planned unless otherwise communicated by the directors.
Due to the expenses of the program, school instruments & equipment, we will not perform in the rain at home football games or competitions (including the state championships).
Competition hosts will usually move the performances indoors for a standstill competition if the weather is unsuitable for performing. However, if the performances are not moved indoors, we may still cancel our performance in consideration of the equipment.
This would be a difficult decision but necessary to protect the financial investments of our marching band and its students.
