ATTENDANCE POLICY AND ABSENCE NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES
nature of the orchestra experience requires a concerted effort by individuals
doing their best at all times. By accepting membership in the Tacoma Youth
Symphony Association, each student is expected to fulfill the obligations
associated with all performances, retreats and tours as well as the rehearsals
for their preparation. A rehearsal schedule will be handed out at the beginning
of each concert set to assist the students and their families with planning. In
all aspects of this experience, punctuality is essential as is communicating
extraordinary personal circumstances to the conductor through the Rehearsal
Assistant. Student attendance record is reviewed at the beginning of each season
as a factor affecting orchestral placement.
Each student is required to attend all performances, retreats and tours
of the orchestra of which he/she is a member.
If a conflict occurs, the student should identify it as many months in
advance as possible and
attempt to resolve it to avoid the conflict with the TYSA event.
If these efforts do not resolve the conflict, the student should fill out
a Notification of Absence From Rehearsal form and submit it online. THIS SHOULD
For students in
leadership positions (principals, assistants and players with one on a part)
this is a very serious matter.
EMERGENCY absences (sudden illness, death in the family, etc.)
must be referred to the Rehearsal Assistant as early as possible.
DO NOT CALL THE
TYSA OFFICE regarding attendance problems; you must speak
directly with the Rehearsal Assistant.
After two absences a letter will be sent home to the
parents. After three absences the student needs to meet with the conductor.
Each student must attend every
rehearsal and stay to its conclusion. Some works do not require all
instruments. Players of such instruments must be in attendance only for
that portion of the rehearsal for which they have a part. They may leave only
after being dismissed by the conductor.
Students are expected to arrive at
the rehearsal site, be tuned and warmed up by the beginning of the rehearsal;
arriving at starting time would make the student late. Being late greatly
detracts from the planned group objectives. It is also a requirement to be
in place and on time after scheduled breaks. Students who enter a
rehearsal late for any reason must check in with the Rehearsal Assistant.
Forms may be submitted online below.
A parent electronic signature is required. Please remember that by accepting membership in the Tacoma Youth Symphony Association, you have
agreed to attend all rehearsals, performances, retreats and tours.
If you have a conflict with a particular event and it is not possible to
work out an alternative arrangement, it is important for our planning that
we know as far in advance as possible the details of your proposed
absence. Your attendance record is
reviewed each Fall as a factor affecting your orchestral placement.
