-Students will be taking the official band and color guards pictures in the stadium with Brett. All band students will be in their black/red field show uniforms without the shako.

-Band students should come in dressed in their uniforms’ appropriate black undergarments, such as a black v-neck t-shirt (v-neck is preferred, crew neck is acceptable); black bike shorts or compression shorts or tights; black crew socks, socks need to cover over the ankles.

-No makeup, nail polish, or jewelry are allowed. No phones or wearable devices are allowed while in uniforms. Exception must be cleared by Mr. Fierro.

-Students will not need to use the shakos for the pictures. Therefore, the only hair requirement is to keep it neat and presentable. A minimum hair product should be applied.

-Students should bring in another set of field practice-appropriate clothing and shoes to change into after the pictures.

-Sunscreen products should be applied after the use of uniforms.

—Sincerely, the MCHS Band Uniforms Team Leads (Lori Welch and Nicole Goebel)
