The marching band does not meet during the school day.  However, all marching band members are required to be in a band class for the full year to participate.  Academic exceptions may be made with the approval from the band director.  The band director’s recommendations are required to be a member of the marching band. 


Students must attend all practices and performances for the full time or they will be dismissed from all marching band activities.  Practices are normally scheduled on Mondays from 3:30pm-5:30pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00pm- 6:00pm.  Further, students are required to attend a one or two week marching band camp during the summer.
