Orchestra classes will rehearse every other day. Student participation points will be earned during each rehearsal. Students are expected to come to rehearsals prepared with their instruments. A note from home is required if the instrument is in the repair shop, or if the student is not able to play due to a finger injury.
Lessons will rotate through several class periods and will occur once per six day cycle, using the A – F day schedule. All classroom work which is missed must be made up. Students with tests or special review classes will be excused from the lesson that day, however unexcused abscences must be made up.
The orchestra room will be open from 7:30-8:00 A.M. for instrument drop-off. You may leave your instrument in the room, but you must return to the auditorium to listen to the morning announcements. Instruments should be picked up at the end of the day.
