General Information

Attendance Policy:

The Bradley Band considers all practices and performances mandatory and un-excused absences can affect a student’s band grade. One of the band directors should be notified ahead of time if a conflict exists.

Excused Absences:

  1. Death in the immediate family
  2. Personal Illness
  3. Previously scheduled event of an important nature (overseas travel, etc.)

Un-excused Absences:

  1. Doctor, dentist, hair appointment, or similar (if an appointment is necessary, we would rather the student miss band class during school rather than after school rehearsal)
  2. UT Football Games, Vacation, etc.
  3. Work

The directors will determine each absence on a case by case basis.
