Marching Band & ColorGuard Parents 2019

Chaperones for Away Game & Parade - Mira Costa Marching Band

The marching band is traveling to 1 Away Game and 1 Parade this season.  The students have a GREAT time on the bus rides and in the stands.  These are very fun, casual events.  

We need 3 band chaperones per Away Game.  The band usually meets at 5:30 pm to load buses and they return about 10 pm or 11 pm (depending on traffic).  

We need 3 band chaperones and 1 colorguard chaperone per Parade.  The band usually meets at 8 am to load buses and they return around 11 am.

As an Away-Game or Parade Chaperone, you will:

  • Report to Bus loading area 10 minutes before scheduled call time.
  • One chaperone will collect the green chaperone backpack from the uniform storage room in the Band Room.
  • Collect bus driver information and share with other chaperones.
  • Take roll as students board the bus. Students can ride on any of the buses, the only restriction is that they must ride to and from in the same bus.
  • Ride the assigned bus with students and help ensure all students are safe and following school bus rules.  Students must remain seated as the bus is moving; absolutely no body part outside windows at any time, this includes hands.
  • Upon arrival assist in unloading the assigned bus and that all students unloads their instruments.
  • Stay with the students at all times, including in the bleachers.
  • Distribute water as necessary
  • Once game is over walk back to the bus with students.
  • Take roll as students board the bus.
  • Approximately 10 - 15 minutes before returning to MCHS, make an announcement asking the students to call their parents/ride to come and pick them up at school.
  • Upon returning to MCHS, check the bus for trash, personal belongings, and instruments (trash bags and flashlight will be provided)
  • Only release the buses when all 3 have returned to MCHS, have been double-checked for belongings, and all students have their instruments
