The Emergency Medical Form is included in the marching band order form packet listed above. Every student must return an Emergency Medical Form and an order form EVERY YEAR. (We shred previous years' Emergency Forms.)
Please use the following guidelines for proper attire during the Marching Band and Concert seasons:
Football Games -- 1st game -- Summer Attire (weather permitting) All others -- Marching Band Uniform (weather permitting)
Competitions -- Marching Band Uniform or Concert uniform
Parades -- Labor Day Parade -- Summer Attire (tentative) Richmond Parade -- Summer Attire Thanksgiving Parade -- Marching Band Uniform (and lots of thermal under clothing)
Concerts/Band Festivals -- Concert Attire
After performing at competitions students change out of their uniforms and sit in the bleachers together as a band. They must wear one of the following: show t-shirt, red band polo shirt, band hoodie, or band jacket. If they do not purchase the band hoodie they must wear something red, the shirt can be plain or have Chippewa printed on it.
Football games, competitions, and parades: ALL hair must go under the helmet – including boys. Students need to bring their own hair ties, clips, hair nets, bobby pins, etc. from home.
Football games, competitions, parades, concerts, and festivals: Jewelry and nail polish are not allowed. Leave all jewelry at home, students will be asked to remove it if worn. French tips are allowed as long as they are a light color. All other colors will be removed.
PARENTS: Please help your student out each time they leave for a performance. Ask them if they have their socks, shoes, white t-shirt, bobby pins, etc. We do not have enough extra uniform parts to lend out because of forgetfulness. If they come without the proper attire, they will be asked to call home for you to bring them their supplies.
We are always looking for help in the uniform room, give us a call if you can spare some time. No sewing experience necessary. We have A LOT of fun!
