This absence request form must be filled out at least two weeks in advance of any anticipated conflict with a rehearsal or performance. This absence request does not guarantee an excused absence, and should only be used when conflicts cannot be resolved.
Please attempt to resolve conflicts in advance. The band does not get better at a rehearsal when people are missing, as it forces workarounds for missing students.
Failure to complete this form in a timely manner could result in an unexcused absence. Unexcused absences will result in loss of performance privileges and placement in the marching show/concert performance. Multiple unexcused absences may result in the loss of placement in the marching show, privileges such as earning a varsity letter or participation in other special events, as well as member status.
