Absence Form

MYS Attendance Policy

MYS musicians may not miss more than 3 rehearsals before any one concert. Students with more than the allotted number of absences may be excused from upcoming performances at the discretion of the conductor and/or Music Director. A final decision will be made based on the reasons for absences, the student’s demonstrated dedication to MYS.

Any student, faculty, or staff who report COVID-19-like symptoms must stay home and not attend
rehearsals or performances.

  • Fever (100.4 Fahrenheit) or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • Recent loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

We kindly request that you do not call the office to report absences. Instead, please fill out the MYS Absence Form below.  Absence forms should be submitted 2 weeks prior to scheduled absence, unless due to an illness or last-minute emergency. In those cases, please submit the form as soon as you possibly can.
