    Absences may be excused for:
     - other school functions (such as sports or other clubs)
     - DOCUMENTED illness (a signed parent note or e-mail must be submitted)
     - DOCUMENTED legal or medical appointments
     - religious holidays
     - death in the family (you may be asked to provide documentation).  
    "WORK" IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE FOR MISSING A REHEARSAL OR PERFORMANCE. 
    If there is a conflict causing the student to miss an after school rehearsal, dress rehearsal or performance, contact Mr. Bennett PRIOR to the absence.  Absences from after school rehearsals will be marked as a zero.  Excused rehearsals will not negatively affect a student’s grade and will appear as an exempt assignment in the gradebook. Any unexcused rehearsals will result in a 0 in the gradebook for that event.  Emergency situations requiring the student to miss an event should be submitted along with a parent note about the emergency.
