Excused Absence – An absence you indicated in advance on your Commitment Form.

Unexcused Absence – An absence not indicated in advance on your Commitment Form, such as an illness or family emergency.

Each member is allowed one excused absence.

It is mandatory that you make arrangements for a substitute from the approved list for your excused absence. (See Julie for the approved list of players).

A second unexcused absence will be brought before the West Michigan Flute Orchestra Board. The board will decide if you will continue to play in Chamber Choir (depending on the circumstance and timeliness of the situation) or if one of the approved substitutes will replace you for the remainder of the season.
