All excused absences from any band function must be submitted on the student absence form at least two weeks in advance of the date requested. Failure to fill out an absence form will result in an automatic unexcused absence. Serious illness, death in the family, marriage in the immediate family, religious obligations, academic responsibilities, and other events approved by the director are the ONLY excused absences. Work is not an excused absence. Students will be expected to complete make-up work following an excused absence (illness, death in the family, etc.).
By submitting this request, you as a student understand that it does not guarantee that your absence will be excused. You also understand that it is your responsibility as a student to obtain any make-up assignments, make-up time missed from rehearsal, and to make sure that the director receives all make-up work and important information.
