If you know that you/your student will be absent for an extracurricular rehearsal or performance, please fill out the absence form here. Please note that this does not automatically ‘excuse’ the student from the event – please contact us directly if it is significant conflict (FB game, concert, festival, etc)

Stadium Rehearsal @ SM North Stadium, 6-8pm Thursday

  • Mandatory for all marching band students
  • Truck/equipment load at 4pm
  • Students arrive (on own) at 5:30pm
  • Parents are welcome to watch! We will be running the show around 7:15, and pregame around 7:45

Football Game #2 – vs. Mill Valley @ SM North Stadium


All students should be bringing their own water bottles to rehearsal. We have backup water, but students should be responsible for their own water. Even though the weather is cooling down, we will be exerting more effort in rehearsals as well as wearing heavy uniforms as the season progresses. We are still having issues with students not properly hydrating! Remember, proper hydration starts the day BEFORE the event.
