SCHEDULE 2013-2014 SCHOOL YEAR
Band is a performance
class. The required performances are considered an extension of the school day
and are therefore academic, not extra-curricular.
A parent/guardian needs
to make any excused absence requests by calling
or emailing Mr. Horton no later than 2 weeks prior to the performance. If
a performance is missed without an excused absence request, only documented
illness and family emergencies will be acceptable excuses. All absences should
be documented by a parent phone call or email before
the concert, when possible.
To receive credit for
an absence from a concert, Students will need to make arrangements to perform
the concert music individually for Mr. Horton outside of the school day within
one week of the concert.
