School Excused Absence Form

CLICK HERE

This form has been prepared for our dancers to give to their teachers. It is a request to be excused from all school-related activities during the final week of rehearsals, as well as to notify schools and teachers of all performances. Please resolve all conflicts as soon as possible, so that you are able to attend all mandatory rehearsals and performances in December.

 

ALERT:  All rehearsals after Thanksgiving weekend and during "tech week" in December, plus all (6) performances, are mandatory for every dancer. Please identify school conflicts as soon as possible, and make arrangements with teachers accordingly.
