#7. There are many students who are not current on their band fees. At this point all students should have paid at least $325 of their band fees. The next band fee payment is due on September 15th!
#8. Please be reminded that NO practice/performance is considered optional. It is not appropriate to miss any rehearsal. The allowed excused absences are listed in the handbook. In the event that you cannot attend a rehearsal /performance it is the STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY to inform Mr. Gulledge, Mrs. Loftis or Mr. Hall. Students who have unexcused absences face the following consequences: grade reduction, detention, and even removal from the program. We have no “bench” to pull from. If you are absent the entire group suffers!
