CHAPERONES

 

Being a Band Chaperone is one of the most fun and rewarding ways to get involved with the Band and a great way to experience Band along-side your student!  The majority of chaperone opportunities occur with the Marching Band during the Fall Marching Band season.  The Band needs chaperones for both home and away football games and parades.  For each event the Band needs an equivalent number of male and female chaperones and we are always in need of medically trained chaperones.  

 

The primary duties of the Band Chaperones are to maintain headcount, a safe perimeter around the Band whether they are home or away, and assist students with a wide variety of needs.  Chaperones accompany groups of students to restrooms, assist with the distribution of water and snack, assist with emergency uniform repairs, and oversee the loading crew as needed.  The Band always has a medically trained chaperone with the group to address any minor medical or first aid issues that may arise.
