All students who participate in the high school band program must participate in Marching Band during the first trimester. Varsity football players who wish to be in band will be given an alternative assignment for the first 10 weeks, since they will not be required to march. The Marching Band performs at all home football games, all playoff games and the Halloween Parade. Each school year will begin with a week long Marching Band Camp late in the summer. It is a requirement that all band members attend the entire week of band camp in addition to periodic evening rehearsals.
