By providing my digital signature below, I understand that this absences request may be either approved or denied by the Hays Band staff per the Hays Bands Handbook. Both the student and the parent / guardian will be notified if their request is either approved or denied. I further understand that consistent absences by my student may result in a reduction of their grade, limited participation in the show and potential removal of the program.
In addition, I understand that band and color guard operate as team activities that rely on members consistently being there for each other. It is understood that my students absence can have a strong impact on the overall success of the program and that absences should be reserved for emergency situations ONLY.
