Comfortable and weather appropriate clothes. See school guidelines on dress code, check the weather, and plan accordingly.

Please the following guidelines when dressing (Band uniforms) for performances:
For home games: students should have their pants, shoes, and show shirt on. Jacket on a hanger in their garment bag. They will put their jacket on before we march to the football field. Woodwinds may bring their instrument cases to the bleachers if it looks like it will rain or are in cheerleading.
For away performances (games and competitions): students should have their pants, shoes, and show shirt on. Jacket on a hanger in their garment bag. There is a pocket for gloves. The rain jacket might fit in there as well. They will put their jacket on when they arrive to the performance location but before they exit the bus. The hat should be in a hatbox during the bus ride. This streamlines getting on and off the bus. Instrument cases stay on the bus or trailer. Woodwinds may bring their case if it looks like it will rain or are in cheerleading.
Students should always have their garment bag, hatbox, gloves, and raincoat with them.
