Bus Rules and Considerations
- Always listen to the bus driver, chaperones and Directors
- There she be zero noise at a railroad crossing
- No food or drink should be consumed on the bus
- Guys should be sitting with guys and girls with girls. Additionally, couples should not be sitting together on the bus.
- If the bus ride is longer, your uniform jacket may come of. It should NEVER touch the ground of the bus or be hanging out the window. If you jacket is off, it should be back on as soon as we are pulling into the away high school.
- DO NOT get off the bus until you are instructed to do so by a director.
- You should be in full uniform before you get off the bus.
- Don’t leave valuable personal belongings on the bus as there is no guarantee the bus locks and there may not always be someone with the bus. We will also not be carrying bags into the stadium.
We will wear the full uniform for this game. This includes: Dinkles (they must be clean), black socks (calf/knee high without other markings), athletic shorts, Grey 2022 Band T-shirt, Uniform Pants, Uniform Jacket, shako (hat), and black gloves (will be provided on Friday). Additionally, your hair should be neatly up so that it can fit inside the shako. If you’re not sure, ask a veteran member. Piercings need to be removed, replaced with something clear, or covered with a skin colored bandage. Bandanas, sunglasses, etc. are not a part of the uniform and points and/or 3rd quarter free time will be lost for not wearing the correct uniform. Once your uniform is on, it is to stay completely on unless a director tells you otherwise, this includes the shako and gloves.
Guard, Mr. Ballog will communicate with you about uniform expectations.
