All marching band instrumentalists must also be registered for Ninth Grade Band, Tenth Grade Band, Concert Band,or Symphonic Band

Members must attend all rehearsals and performances unless they have submitted an excuse in advance to Mr.Leskowicz.

Any absence may affect a student’s position in the band for half-time shows in the fall.

An unexcused absence will remove a student in the band for at least one half-time show in the fall.

Band members will report to the North building for all rehearsals, and before all scheduled performances.

Band members driving or being transported to band rehearsals are not permitted to drive on the practice field area of the South parking lot before, during, or after a rehearsal.

Any member who violates this rule as a driver or a passenger will be dismissed from the band.

Band members will conduct themselves in a responsible manner at all times, especially while in uniform.  Use of profanity while in uniform is an extreme lack of judgement and will result in immediate dismissal from the band.
