Attendance

Students are expected to be present at all rehearsals on their assigned dates and times.  Parents must notify the artistic director of any missed rehearsals in advance in writing at http://www.smchoralarts.org/absence-form.  Students are allowed two excused, and two unexcused absences.  Any other rehearsals missed are subject to possible testing on sections that were covered during rehearsals that were missed.  The director will email parents in advance if rehearsals are postponed or cancelled.  The director also will not schedule additional rehearsals once the schedule has been finalized.  Students who miss the two final dress rehearsals prior to our concert, may not be able to perform.
 
Absence Forms

Absence Forms will be now handled online through the St. Maries Choral Arts website.  Absence Forms will be on the Parents page of the SMCC Page and can be found at http://www.smchoralarts.org/absence-form  Click on the SMCC ABSENCE button to record an absence.  Absence Forms will be forwarded to the SMCC Artistic Directors, Erin Tennyson and Phoebe Kammerer.
