BMB Absence Form
The Blackhawk Marching Band is an extra curricular activity and so much fun that its often easy to forget your commitment and obligation to the ensemble. It is critical for students to attend all rehearsals in order not to fall behind other members. We understand that occasionally significant conflicts occur, potentially forcing a student to miss a rehearsal. Please fill out this form prior for any such unavoidable absence. In case of any unanticipated emergency absence, please complete this form at the first available opportunity. Please fill out this form for EACH rehearsal or portion thereof) that you will be missing. Please refer to the attendance policy on page five of the Blackhawk Marching Band Handbook for specifics.

Please note that filling out this form does NOT mean your absence from rehearsal is excused. It does mean you have correctly followed the procedure to communicate the absence from rehearsal to instructional staff. It is your responsibility to communicate with student leadership (drum major or section leader) to catch up what you missed in rehearsal.
