    Attendance and Academic Policies for Blast: SIGN at BOTTOM

    Participation in BLAST requires a significant commitment of time in addition to effort and talent. It is absolutely essential that each BLAST member commit to the group. Each member must be present for rehearsals, as absences affect the quality of the performance for the entire group. While we realize that there are instances in which absences are unavoidable, the policy for BLAST is as follows: ■Attendance at full show runs, dress rehearsals and all performances is mandatory under all circumstances! ■Absences for BLAST are deemed excused or unexcused at the discretion of Mr. Albright, through the Blast 28 Middle School Liaison. Each member is permitted no more than ONE excused absence (not including excused school absences). Such absences would include doctor or dental appointments, illness, school-sponsored activities, games, tournaments, meetings. Except for true emergencies, these excused absences must be authorized no less than 24 hours in advance. We ask that you please do not schedule routine doctor or dental appointments during rehearsal times. ■There is no tolerance of unexcused absences; ignorance is not an excuse. ■ MCPS policies regarding tardiness & absences, apply to BLAST and are strictly followed. No exceptions. You must be at school all day in order to participate in after school rehearsals. You must not be absent, or tardy for any class, on performance days in order to perform. Make sure you know the MCPS policies! ■It is your responsibility to keep up with your academic classes. You must maintain an unweighted GPA of 2.5 to perform in BLAST. This policy is strictly enforced.
