Attendance, Communication and Make-Up Assignments"Attendance: Students are expected to participate in ALL after school rehearsals, dress rehearsals, concerts and performances. PERFORMANCES ARE LISTED ON THE BAND PAGE & IN THE CALENDAR ON THE WEBSITE! (At LHS we encourage students to become 'well-rounded' individuals. I work with athletic coaches to ensure that they can play their sport and be able to participate in band. If students participate in football or basketball, pep band performances are excused if the athletes are playing in the games.) If students are not present, consistently, weeks prior to a concert/ performance, they will not be adequately prepared to perform with the group and will not be allowed to perform. A makeup project will have to be completed for the missed performance. * Unavoidable conflicts for scheduled performances must be submitted to Mrs. Trapp PRIOR to the event and at the EARLIEST possible date. Mrs. Trapp will then determine if your absence will be excused. She must know 24 hours in advance if you must miss a rehearsal or performance. Must be turned in within 1 week. (2 weeks is max in special circumstances) Make up work (Theory Papers & Practice logs for the first two pep games or practices, 8 page paper for additional pep games/ 15 page paper for concerts) is only available for EXCUSED absences for 95% credit. (Emergencies are always the exception.)
Lettering and PE WaiversLettering: Students can letter in band by attending every practice and game during our 2 pep seasons. You may only miss 1 practice/game per season in order to letter and maintain a ‘C’ or higher in the class. PE Waivers: PE waivers are available if a student does not miss more than 2 combined practice or game during both pep seasons. You cannot miss more than 2, as you will not have enough ‘hours’ to qualify for the waiver.
