Absence / Excuse Information


When a member is aware of an upcoming absence from a performance or a scheduled after-school rehearsal, he/she must fill out the absence form on the bands website at least three weeks prior to the absence, or bring a writtenstatement from his/her parent or legal guardian at least three weeks prior to the absence, explaining the need for the absence. This does not mean the absence will be considered excused; it just keeps the lines of communication open. All absence forms submitted will be reviewed by the Directors and will be decided upon on a case by case basis at the Directors’ discretion. In some cases, we will try to work out the best possible solution to the conflict, while minimizing the amount of rehearsal/performance time missed. In case of an absolute emergency, a written excuse from the student’s parents or guardians should be tendered upon the student’s next rehearsal.
