Band: Rules and Expectations
Supplies and Performance Attire
Supplies needed: Instrument in good playing condition at all times; any needed cleaning or maintenance supplies for your instrument; YOUR own flip folder w/ at least 20 pages and concert folder for concert music; 2 pencils (no pens)
Pep/Marching Attire: Pep shirts/Jackets must be purchased by each band member. Pep shirts are worn with long, blue jeans and tied tennis shoes. When FULL UNIFORM is stated, the band family wears our band uniform pants/bibbers, jackets and shakos (hats). Students must provide and bring long black socks and ALL black marching shoes. (no dress shoes, and NO color on them... that includes brand symbols and logos on the shoe. The shoe must be completely black)

Dress/skirt must be 2 inches below knee and sleeves must be at least to the elbow. Black close toed dress shoes (no spike heels, no flip flops) and black nylons or tights.
Attendance, Communication and Make-Up Assignments
Attendance: Students are expected to participate in ALL after school rehearsals, dress rehearsals, concerts and performances. PERFORMANCES ARE LISTED ON THE BAND PAGE & IN THE CALENDAR ON THE WEBSITE! (At LHS we encourage students to become 'well-rounded' individuals. I work with athletic coaches to ensure that they can play their sport and be able to participate in band. If students participate in football or basketball, pep band performances are excused if the athletes are playing in the games.) If students are not present, consistently, weeks prior to a concert/ performance, they will not be adequately prepared to perform with the group and will not be allowed to perform. A makeup project will have to be completed for the missed performance.
* Unavoidable conflicts for scheduled performances must be submitted to Mrs. Trapp PRIOR to the event and at the EARLIEST possible date. Mrs. Trapp will then determine if your absence will be excused. She must know
24 hours in advance if you must miss a rehearsal or performance. Make up work (Theory Papers & Practice logs for the first two pep games or practices, 8 page paper for additional pep games/ 15 page paper for concerts) is only available for EXCUSED absences for 95% credit. (Emergencies are always the exception.)
Lettering and PE Waivers
Lettering: Students can letter in band by attending every practice and game during our 2 pep seasons. You may only miss 1 practice/game per season in order to letter and maintain a ‘C’ or higher in the class.
PE Waivers: PE waivers are available if a student does not miss more than 2 combined practice or game during both pep seasons. You cannot miss more than 2, as you will not have enough ‘hours’ to qualify for the waiver.
