Band Policies

 If your child is going to miss band practice for ANY reason, Mr. Porco needs to know ASAP.  Please read the handbook!  If your child is sick, please email Mr. Porco as soon as you know that your child will not be attending practice.

If your child is new to the band, here are a few helpful hints to make this season successful:
   Arrive at least 15 minutes before 6:00 pm so that your child can set up their instrument and be ready to begin at 6:00 pm
   Have plenty of water
   Wear sunscreen
   Wear closed toe shoes
   Wear appropriate clothing for weather and rehearsal
If your child is a returning member, the above hints are helpful for them as well.

Students can eat a snack or meal before games on Fridays. Slices of pizza can be purchased at the band parent table at practice during the week, Tuesday/Wednesday, for $1.25 a slice. They will have a chance to eat at the concession stand during 3rd quarter as well.

A bus will be available to take the middle school students from the band room to the high school IMMEDIATELY after school on Fridays.

***All dismissal times after competitions and football games are approximate.  This will depend on a number of factors such as game duration, travel time, etc.  When we are packed up and have had our meeting, they will be dismissed.***

HOW CAN I HELP?  If one parent can help with even one task for one event, that would be a big help.  Have lots of time? Pit Crew-helps place the stationary instruments on/off the field. Have only a little time?-help hand out uniforms before or after a game or competition.  Help is also needed immediately prior/after performances simple tasks like putting the headpieces (plumes) on the helmets.  Fundraising help-during events, Home Show, Basket Auctions, dine out nights, mums, poinsettias etc..
