ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION POLICY

So that we can take advantage of the little time we have, the following
is the policy for attendance.

school) or lesson that is missed without being excused by me
prior to that
rehearsal will be recorded as unexcused.
A student will only be permitted one
excused absence from in school rehearsals per semester. No excused absences
will be permitted four weeks prior to a concert.
The only excuses allowed for
missing an after school rehearsal are: Graded school-sponsored events,
Doctor's appointments, etc.

his/her instrument to a scheduled lesson or rehearsal, it will be counted as

REQUIREMENT of band. Students will not be excused for any reason other then
illness or family emergency.
Your ability to
participate is based on your attendance at all
lessons, rehearsals and performances
