Excused Absence Request Form
Choir is a performance-based activity and grading for this class is based mainly upon daily rehearsal and performances. An alternate assignment will be given for conflicts if the director is given one week's notice and approval is given. If one week's notice is not given, the absence from the concert will be considered an unexcused absence and cannot be made up. Due to the heavy weight of performances, missing a performance or rehearsal can result in a failing grade.
Unexcused absences include work related conflicts, family dinners, birthdays, doctor appointments, dentist appointment, rock concerts, etc… Please plan ahead. Excusable absences include weddings, funerals (one weeks’ notice unnecessary), major family events, military requirements, etc. If you have a question about what is considered excused, please call the choral office well in advance.
Excusable absences must be submitted in writing two weeks before the event.
