There are some restrictions that we must follow during this time:

Each student should have their water bottle clearly labeled with their name. DO NOT share water bottles. We will be outside the entire time each day, barring weather issues.
Students will not be able to store equipment in the band room overnight. Exceptions to this will be for sousaphones and percussion instruments due to size.
Students will be required to have their temperature checked and answer 4 questions each day prior to being admitted to the rehearsals.
Students and staff should arrive dressed for practice. There will not be changing facilities available.
Students should plan to leave campus immediately after the end of the activity
Any student who wishes to wear a mask, will be allowed to.
When outdoors, students should maintain a minimum of 6 feet distance from one another. If we are rehearsing indoors, students should maintain a minimum of 10 feet distance from one another.
After School Rehearsals - The DC Marching Band will be rehearsing after school on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 3:30 to 5:15. This is subject to change based on the school release time.
Uniforms - Students will need khaki color shorts AND pants for the season and black socks. The shorts/pants should follow school dress code and are not allowed to have holes. If a belt is worn (optional), it must be black. A band t-shirt will be provided to each student. Shirts will be tucked in. Hair must be fixed in a way that it is removed from the face (pony tail, braids, clips, BLACK headband, etc.). The only jewelry allowed will be stud earrings and watches.
