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
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- Recent loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
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.
