Marching Band Online Absence Form
Each member is expected to attend ALL rehearsals and performances. The directors must approve exceptions in advance.
From the Guidebook:
"Each member is expected to attend all rehearsals and performances. Maximum attendance is absolutely essential to the success of the Marching Band. Our pursuit of excellence in performance can only be realized given maximum attendance that permits effective use of rehearsal time. We schedule the minimum number of practices needed to sustain the quality and educational validity of our style and scope of band program. No practice is extra or unneeded.
An unexcused absence for a rehearsal or performance cannot be tolerated. Unexcused absences will result in a loss of performance privileges/assignment of service hours to the organization.
