This form must be filed for ANY band absence or tardy from a rehearsal or performance outside of the school day. Word of mouth, phone calls, or written out notes are no longer acceptable ways to submit this information. Note that the filing of this form does NOT immediately excuse you from a rehearsal or performance. The band department attendance policy is listed in the handbook, and will be strictly enforced. Once the form is submitted, you can expect to see one of four responses:
Your absence or tardy has been approved as listed.
Your absence or tardy has been approved with the condition that some form of documentation must be provided.
Not enough information has been provided to make a decision. Resubmit the form with the requested information.
Your absence or tardy has been denied.
