It is therefore necessary to have a strict attendance policy for all chorus performances, concerts and dress rehearsals. Attendance is taken at all choral events and all students are assessed & self-assessed by rubric.Students must contact Mrs. Johnson at least one week in advance with a written parent note in the case of a major family conflict scheduled on the day of a choral event. Students who fail to do this or are absent from the performance will have their grade reduced by one letter grade (10%). Work is not an excuse. Not having a ride is not an excuse. Sicknesses must be called in to Mrs. Johnson prior to an event. The student must present a written parent note to the instructor the next class day in order to arrange make-up work; the teacher is not responsible for approaching the student regarding make up work. Students will have one week after the make-up assignment is received to turn in work after an excused absence.HOMEWORK: Students are expected to prepare for each rehearsal, which requires from 60-90 minutes of home practice per week. Additional written assignments will also be assigned. Please see quarter syllabus.MAKE -UP WORK: See Attendance Policy for concerts. An absence from a class period will result in a zero for the day.
