    Performance Attendance Policy-
    • Students are expected to perform with their band- Remember this is our final project and everyone is a valuable part of the team!
    • Maximum points (usually 50 per event) are earned through punctuality, proper dress, and appropriate behavior.
    • "Excused" absences  require written advance notice from a parent (several days or weeks before).
    • Illness-related absences will be considered "excused" upon parent contact (preferably in writing).
    • "Unexcused" absences cannot be made up since it is impossible to recreate the valuable experience of performing with a group.  

    Posting of Student Grades

    Grades will be posted in the Parent Portal as time allows. Please check student grades there on a regular basis.
    Use the Homework Page and Performance Calendar to check for assignment due dates.
