ALL BAND CAMP ACTIVITIES WILL TAKE PLACE AT PRP TECH BUILDING.
All band camp dates, rehearsals and performances are MANDATORY. It is vital that YOU know your schedule and that you PLAN AHEAD.
"To fail to plan is to plan to fail!"
Missing a day of camp could put your spot in the show in jeopardy putting you in a alternate / non-performing position! It is vital that ALL MEMBERS attend EACH DAY of camp. IF you are too ill to attend a day of camp (this means you need to go to the doctor or ER), please follow the following procedure:
1. THE STUDENT(not the parent) WILL Call Ms. Burnell AT LEAST 30 MINUTES prior to rehearsal beginning. (Parents please realize we are teaching life skills here.) In the event the student is hospitalized or some other emergency event, the parent may call.
2. THE STUDENT will also text / call their section leader and inform them of the absence.
PLEASE NOTE! Telling a staff member or another student to inform Ms. Burnell of the absence IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ACCEPTABLE. Students who do this will be placed as an alternate IMMEDIATELY. In addition, any student who misses a day of camp without contacting the director will not be allowed to continue in the ensemble. This will be strictly enforced.
We must have commitment, not convenient commitment
Keep in mind, if you don't take care of your body, IT WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU! Illness is usually brought on due to lack of sleep, lack of proper hydration prior to rehearsal, lack of enough calorie intake (YOU MUST EAT), not eating breakfast, sunburn, etc. Please make sure to take care of yourself!!!
For all other absences beyond camp, please follow procedure as outlined in your marching band handbook.
