Football vs. Crockett Info

Here is some important information for our first 2015 football game:

Immediately upon the end of school at 4:20pm, students will either head to the cafeteria (if game day tailgating was purchased) or to eat their dinner in the hallway.  A detailed schedule for the afternoon will be given during class…but all students must be done eating at 5:00pm and fully dressed, ready for inspection in their assigned areas.  Dinner on a game day is not a “liesurely” time.

All students must have all required materials in order to attend the game.  Any student who does not have any required item will not be permitted to board the bus.  

Required items are:

  • Band Polo - Were distributed after rehearsal on Tuesday evening.  Will be available for those that ordered Thursday immediately after school.
  • Khaki Shorts - Freshmen and new members may wear khaki (or as close as possible to khaki.)  All returning members are to wear their old summer uniform shorts.
  • Band Baseball Hats - Any hats that were ordered will be available after school Thursday.
  • Black Marching Shoes - Any shoes that were ordered will be available after school Thursday (if not already picked up.)
  • Black Socks
  • White Marching Gloves - Will be distributed during uniform inspections Thursday.
  • Instrument
  • Flip Folder - Must have all music and a piece of cardboard for the halftime “window.”

Students will not be permitted to wear the following:

  • Make-up
  • Piercings - ALL piercings must be removed.  This includes ears, cartilage, nose, tongue, etc.  Marching band season is not the time to gauge your ears or get a new piercing.
  • Bows, headbands, etc.
  • Jewelry - No rings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets, etc.

Students will only be permitted to board the bus with items needed for the game.  No book bags, tote bags, food, etc. will be permitted on the bus or at the game.
