Tomorrow, Thursday August 2 is our scheduled drug testing. All 9-12 grade members must test to be eligible to participate in band.
Summer band policies:
-Students should be dropped off and picked by the band room door at the back of the school. I try my best to be at every band event 30 minutes before the report time to open the door. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE INSIDE THE SCHOOL BUILDING BEFORE MR. MOORE OR MR. P ARRIVE. Band camp week is a good chance to figure out who lives near each other so car pools can be arranged. Please leave the first two spots by the building available for band director parking. Students must wait in the area outside the band room for pick up. I don't want to leave anyone unsupervised. If you anticipate being more than 15 minutes late, please make other arrangements for your child's transportation.They should always wait near the firelane by the band room so Mr. Moore and Mr. P know who is still waiting for a ride.
-Students should not be wandering around the school. We have limited access to the band room, choir room, and a designated restroom.
-Band members should always arrive at practice planning on working outside in athletic shoes for marching with shorts and t-shirt. CNE marching rockets do not rehearse in barefeet or flipflops.
-CNE Band Members should have a natural hair color(does not have to be their own), and long hair should be worn up for performances. If your hair touches the back of your uniform jacket, it should be worn up.
-Lastly, it is very important that students eat properly, rest effectively and hydrate properly. The CNE Marching Rockets work hard to prepare for our performances. We are only as strong as our weakest member, and you aren't helping anyone by being tired or sick and sitting on the sideline. Be prepared to work hard.
Clermont Northeastern has made a focus on raising our academic achievement. Students that are not academically eligible to perform with the band (passing 5 classes for 4th quarter) are still allowed to practice with the band. They are not allowed to perform or travel with the band until they are passing five classes on the next grading period.
