Use the form below to submit a request for an excused absence from a PHS Band rehearsals and/or performances.
List the date and hours of any band practice you miss, or wish to miss that you feel meets the criteria for an excused absence.
Requests for pre-arranged absences should be filed as soon as a conflict is identified and will rarely be excused when notice is given at the last minute except in emergency situations. Please turn submit requests at least one week before the conflict date. Be specific when state the reason for your absence and include enough information for a decision to be made. Please attempt to arrange your schedule to attend all practices and resolve conflicts whenever possible. We have a progressive rehearsal schedule that includes new material at each rehearsal. A student’s work schedule is not considered an excusable reason to miss practice. Band schedules are set very early to allow students the necessary time to arrange other activities, work schedules and/or doctor’s appointments.
Thank you for supporting your son/daughter in a great youth activity and please help them with the responsibility of managing their team calendar. All performances and practices are listed on the PHS Band calendar are are required for all students.
