All students must ride the bus to performing events such as football games, competitions and various other contests. If a student would like to checkout after an event they must fill out a Request Form and turn it in at least one day in advance. Once the event is over the parent or legal guardian may check the student out by signing a release form at the event. (Please see the head chaperone for checkouts) Students should ONLY checkout for special circumstances or emergencies.
You may not sign the release form in advance. Parents or legal guardians MUST be present at the event in order for the student to be allowed to leave. Once the student is checked out into the custody of the parent or legal guardian then Sparkman High School and the band directors will be released of all responsibility for that student.
Students checkout out from any marching band event must take their shako box and garmet bag wtih them to the event. Students should change out of their uniform and return it to the designated parent at the equipment truck during checkouts.
Any student that does not follow travel policies may not be allowed to travel with the band for future events.
