Attire
Concert Dress is all black dress shoes, black slacks (or skirts/dresses), and white button down shirts (or blouses) there can be no “print” patterns on shirts or other colors besides white. The school provides uniforms for parades but all students must possess a pair of plain ALL black sneakers and black socks to wear with the uniform. Looking professional is the first and easiest step towards being professional. If a student is not dressed properly for any performance, they will only receive half credit in Life Skills for attendance.
