Rules & Conduct

The Importance of Good Conduct logo

Because of the nature of the organization, the conduct of all members of the band must be exemplary in the areas of citizenship, adherence to the rules, and traditions of the band and school. Band members are constantly on display and each member must always be aware of the importance of the impression they make on others. Any infraction or incident casts a direct reflection on the band and school as a whole, and may well undo the good work of many dedicated students.

Basic Rules

All students must abide by the Palm Beach County Schools Code of Student Conduct, W.T. Dwyer High School Rules and the regulations laid out in the Band Handbook.

Any extreme disciplinary infraction may result in suspension from band activities or the removal form the band program.

Any equipment that is not specifically assigned to you and areas that are not assigned for you to be in are off limits.

DO NOT use your band locker for anything not band related.

DO NOT disrupt other classes that are held in the band room during the school day. The band room is off limits for lunch, unless otherwise arranged
by the Director.

NO gum, candy soda or other sugary foods are allowed during rehearsals or performances.

Eating is not allowed during rehearsals or performances.

For security reasons, the band room is off limits to all non-band personnel.
