Rehearsals will take place at the Red Lion Area Junior High School. The first rehearsal will be on January 8th, 2019. Rehearsals will then take place on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00. There is no rehearsal on April 23rd.
If a student is absent from school, they are not permitted to participate in after school activities. If a student is sent home by the school nurse, they should not come to rehearsal the same evening.
An excused absence is defined as an unavoidable conflict that is medical, family, or religious in nature. Others are considered unexcused. Some examples:
Sick, home from school Friend’s birthday party
Grandparent’s 60th Birthday Uncle’s 3rd wedding anniversary
Wedding Concert at the Giant Center
Two unexcused absences will be overlooked before the Spring Concert. Students who are absent an excessive amount, excused or unexcused, run the risk of being cut from portions of the concert if they are not able to adequately perform their music.
The band directors will determine if an absence is excused or not excused. If there is a disagreement between directors and parents about this, we will ask a school administrator to make the determination instead.
Parents are to drop students off at the side entrance of the Jr. High near the music wing. According to the Jr. High’s security policy, parents are NOT permitted to enter the building. Students should be dropped off between 20-10 minutes early to allow time to prepare for the start of rehearsal.
Students are dismissed from rehearsal at 8:00, Meaning that they will come outside shortly after that. Mr. Kriebel or Mr. Rosenkrans will come outside with students to supervise. Parents should meet students at the sidewalk to escort them to their car for safety reasons.
