Frequently asked questions
What am I supposed to wear for concerts?
We strive to have as professional and uniform appearance as possible. High School is usually all-black dress clothes. Junior High is usually the same, but may substitute dark clothes. Dresses are acceptable for ladies, but must be long enough considering we're performing up on a stage. Button shirts, polos, pants, slacks, or nice black jeans with no tears or holes are also acceptable. Ties and suits are nice but not required.
When is report time?
Report times vary depending on the event and any travel involved. For events at our school, report times are 1 - 1.5 hours before the start of the event. For events we travel to, the report time is usually 0.5 - 1 hour before we have to leave from the school to make it there in time. For example, if we had an away game that starts at 7, we need to be there at 6 to unload, dress, and assemble instruments. If the game is 1.5 hours away from SV, we would need to leave at 4:30. If the trailer is not loaded, or not able to be loaded during class, this may mean report time is 3:30 so we can load/inspect. This is an instance where it makes sense to stay after school, so the band room will be open and in almost every case, the boosters will provide a meal before we leave or after we arrive where we're going.
Can I do sports and band?
I can't afford an instrument, Can my child still do band?
Absolutely! No matter the case, we WILL find a way for your child to participate. We have had people donate quality instruments and equipment, and the school owns several instruments. That said, there may be limited choices of what is available, but we will find a way for your child to participate.
