Black dress shoes and socks. Girls have the option of wearing an all black dress that goes below the knees. Students that do not have the correct attire on will not be allowed to perform at the concert and their grade will be adjusted according to the grading policy. No exceptions. (i.e. white socks, tennis shoes, short sleeve shirt, jeans...)
The Jazz Band also wears all black (except ladies must wear black pants and a black dress shirt). In addition to this, the Jazz Band wears a brightly colored tie purchased from Mr. Loney for $10.
