Richardson vs Azle Home Football Game (Senior Night/Homecoming) 10/09

The second football game of the year is on Friday, October 9th. Please note that there is no school on this day. All details will be exactly the same as our first game, excluding the addition of Senior Night and Homecoming recognitions.


All students will need to eat ON THEIR OWN prior to the game.

Sousaphones, battery and front ensemble students will arrive to the band hall by 5:30 PM to grab their instruments and take them to the stadium (through the school). You will bring your GEB mask, flip folder, lyre and brass bell cover (if applicable) and head to your assigned spot. Seniors will drop off their items and head to the track to meet their parents.

All other students will arrive to the stadium by 5:45 PM with all of your items. A director will meet you at the front entrance gate and you will head to your assigned spot. You will bring instrument in case, GEB mask, flip folder, lyre and brass bell cover. Woodwinds will not use bag covers. Seniors will drop off their items and head to the track to meet their parents.

Senior parents (and seniors not in marching band) will arrive to stadium by 6:00 PM. ALL ESCORTS/GUESTS WILL NEED TO PURCHASE TICKETS whether they are attending the entire game or just senior recognition. Ticket link will be sent out at a later time. TWO parent/guardians will accompany their student on the field. If parents are not available, a student may ask a family member, director, teacher, coach or sponsor who has made a positive impact in their life to take their place. Again, the limit is two people on the field with the student. Attire for seniors not in marching band – 2020 black band t-shirt, GEB black shorts/black athletic shorts, black ankle socks and tennis shoes. Attire for guests – Anything you would like but it would be great to wear purple or GEB gear! Seniors – please fill out questionnaire ASAP:

A senior salute will occur during halftime; Band Beau and Sweetheart will also be announced. For those not in marching band who would like to participate, you can come prior to the rehearsal on Monday and Tuesday to go over the salute. Please contact the drum majors for more questions. You can also pick up t-shirt at that time or get it during class if you are a Face-To-Face student.

Winds and percussion attire for our second game will be the following: Golden Eagle Band T-shirt, Golden Eagle Band mask, black athletic shorts (Golden Eagle Band black shorts for returning students), black ankle socks and tennis shoes. Your attire will serve as your entrance ticket.

Guard attire for our second game will be the following: Golden Eagle Band T-shirt, Golden Eagle Band mask, and attire provided by the band program, black ankle socks and tennis shoes. Your attire will serve as your entrance ticket. students will receive their shirt next week.

Students will not wear hats, sunglasses or jewelry. Long hair should be pulled back out of their face in a pony tail. This will make us look uniformed. Students may have their phones to make calls once the game concludes. However, students will not be allowed to be on their phones during the game. A tweet will also be sent out (@RHSGEB) at the conclusion of the game that will also show up on the band website.

Plastic water bottles will be provided to all students. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PASS WATER BOTTLES TO EACH OTHER. Our parent volunteers will be the only people allowed to pass out water to each student (while wearing gloves). Students must drink all water before receiving a new water bottle (when needed). We will have bags to recycle plastic bottles at the end of the night. Again, each student will place their empty bottle in bag as volunteers come around.

Ticket information – Tickets will be available to families of all participants to purchase starting on Monday morning at 12:01am until Tuesday night at 11:59pm. This code is only valid for a one time to purchase tickets. You will need to be ready to buy ALL of the tickets you need when you enter the code the first time. Again, it is very important to know the number of tickets that you want to purchase (up to four) prior to purchase. If you login and use the code, you cannot login again another time because the code will not reset.

Parents will use the code student id + date of game (ie 12345-1002)

Chaperone information – Due to a 35% stadium capacity restriction, chaperones will be very limited (unlike in the past). All selected chaperones will come at 6:00 PM and check in with the director at the gate. Chaperones will have an assigned spot in the stands beside the band and must keep as much social distancing throughout the game when helping. All must be wearing masks. If you are interested in volunteering for Friday’s game, please use this link: Volunteers on the list must also fill out a RISD background check at This link is the volunteer health screener and must be completed before entering stadium: Chaperones must show the director a green light on their phone before entering (just as we have been doing the screening with the students). We will take your temperature on-site but you can complete the screener before attending the game.

Drop-off and pick-up will occur in front of the stadium. Below are the options for transportation to games:

Student walks to school.
Student is transported to RISD stadium via parent private vehicle (carpooling is not allowed).
Student drives themselves to RISD stadium game in their own car (students are not allowed to transport other students).
