Marching Contests: October is marching band contest season. We will have three Saturday competitions in October (Oct. 2, Oct 16, and Oct 30). The contests are required for all band members. All students should reserve the entire day
Eligibility: Next Two Weeks
Ineligible students will be required to be at all rehearsals, but unable to paricipate in any events for the next three weeks:
- Sept 22 Region Jazz Auditions
- Sept 25 Plano Drumline Contest
- Oct 1 McKinney Boyd Away Game
- Oct 2 Plano East Marching Invitational
- Oct 6 State Jazz Recording Audition

The Allen Escadrille strictly enforces UIL eligibility requirements for students. This is the Texas "No Pass, No Play" rule where a student will be considered academically ineligible if they have one grade below a 70 in an on-level course at certain times of the year.
During the first quarter in Allen ISD, there is an eligibilty chekpoint at the end of week six (Sept 17) and at the end of week 9 (Oct 8). Students must be considered eligible on these dates or will be unable to participate in games and contests (but will still be required to go to all morning rehearsals) for a minimal time period of three weeks.
If a student is deemed ineligible, they have three weeks to get all of their grades in on-level classes above a 70 average (10/8) and can regain eligibility the next week (10/15). If a student fails to regain eligibility, they will be considered ineligible for another three-week period.
