Week 1, Fall 2018

August 12, 2018 – 4:30 pm |

WEEK 1 !!!!!                                      HHS v. Blackman                    August 13-17

Monday:  rehearsal 3:15-4:30

Tuesday:  rehearsal 3:15-4:30

Thursday:  rehearsal 3:15-4:30

Friday:  Pep rally during the day; marching band members ONLY in the band section; all marching band members should be with the band; do not sit with your grades

Home football game:

For both home and away games:

NON MARCHING BAND MEMBERS MUST STAY OUT OF THE                                                                                   BAND ROOM AFTER SCHOOL/BEFORE THE GAME!

Only band members will be allowed to sit in the band section during the game! !  You will remain in “uniform” during the entire game; when full uniforms are worn later in the season you may not take coats off unless instructed to do so by a director.   You will have a 3rd quarter break to get concessions; you must be back before the buzzer sounds and the 4th quarter begins. If this becomes a problem, we eliminate the break for the group.  You don’t want to be “the” person that causes 130 people to forfeit their break.

Dress:  Band shirt; khaki shorts or pants; band camo baseball cap; tennis shoes:  you need stands music in a folder!

 

*students may leave or stay after school

 

Call time:  6:00 EAT BEFORE YOU ARRIVE; YOU WILL NOT HAVE A DINNER BREAK UNTIL 3RD QUARTER AFTER HALF TIME

Seated for warm-up:  6:15

Block in front of Memorial Garden to march in:  6:35

In stadium:  6:40; pre-game (block on track, SSB)

Game begins:  7:00

Game over:  approximately 9:30

March out of stadium; put equipment away; go home

After games:  put your equipment, etc. away; your section leader will dismiss you when things are properly put away and your area is clean; section leaders you will report to a director when all equipment is put away and all of your section members have gone home (you are then dismissed).

*Parent pick up:  DO NOT PARK IN THE ROAD THAT LEADS UP TO THE LOADING DOCK!  IT BECOMES A HUGE TRAFFIC MESS AT HOME GAMES AND YOU WILL BE BLOCKING BUSES AND OUR SEMI ON AWAY GAMES WHICH WILL DELAY YOUR CHILD FROM LEAVING!  PICK UP IN THE BAND PRACTICE FIELD SIDE LOT OF THE SCHOOL; THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE WE CAN MONITOR!  DO NOT PARK OR PICK UP FROM ANY OTHER AREAS AROUND THE SCHOOL!

*make sure you call and/or arrange rides home following all events!  It is very inconsiderate to make student leaders and directors wait 30 minutes to an hour for you to be picked up!  Plan ahead; we will always give you approximate arrival times and students may call you to let you know of any delays. Call home on away games by the time we turn off the by-pass!
