Drop-off/pick-up: I understand that the entrance/exit for choristers will now be the double doors between the Confessional closet and the choir area. (Note: Drive around the church building to the parking area by the dumpster). Arrival for class opens 15 minutes prior to start time and pickup rides should be waiting in the above-mentioned parking area at the time of class dismissal.
Attendance and promptness: I understand that it is not beneficial for my child or for fellow students for him/her to miss without good cause, and that any occasional absences should be communicated with the director in advance. I understand that being ready for class start time/Mass call time includes planning ahead for parking, bathroom, etc and that being present for the full session is what helps my child be able to focus and enjoy the class.
Sickness: If my child runs a fever or shows symptoms of cold/flu, I understand to keep him/her home and will email a notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choir Binders/Folders: I understand that my child will receive a choir binder or folder which he/she is expected to bring to every rehearsal and Mass unless instructed otherwise. We are responsible for keeping the binder/folder and contents in good condition and returning it at the end of the semester. Lost or damaged binder = $30 replacement fee.
Smartphones: To minimize distraction, choristers who have smartphones will be expected to turn them in when entering rehearsal and claim them at the end of rehearsal.
Face coverings: I understand that a face covering or mask is optional per the parents' discretion, and that if my child will wear one, it should be something that doesn't inhibit his/her voice too greatly.
● I sing for Mass to worship Jesus. The spotlight is on him, not me.
● God deserves our best. I take what I did yesterday, and improve on it today.
● I am a good teammate. I encourage & don't compete with my fellow students.
● I offer the gift of my voice with love and reverence for God and His people.
Save-the-Date: We have reserved the Spring Concert dates (evenings of May 20 & 21) on our calendar since all choristers participate.
