The 2017 Saucon Valley High School Marching Band will be lead by our new Drum Major, SVHS Senior, Sam Striz.
Attendance Policy Reminder
Attendance is mandatory at ALL practices and performances. The only exceptions that will be made are ones submitted in writing in advance to the Band Director.
Acceptable excuses for missing a rehearsal or performance are as follows:
Unacceptable Excuses are as follows:
If a student wishes to leave an event such as a competition early, a note must be provided in advance in order for that student to be released.
ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY: Remember that we are governed by the PIAA. If you are failing two or more subjects, you are ineligible to participate in rehearsals or performances for the following week (Sunday morning through Saturday night). A preliminary list on eligibility is released Wednesday mornings. I try my best to reach out to everyone impacted. Please be on top of your grades!
HYDRATION: This has been a HUGE issue. Please drink enough fluids during the day to avoid heat related issues during rehearsals and performances. This is critical during the warmer days that we have been experiencing. Drink enough fluids at home, before school and during lunch. If you bring a parent note to the nurse, you may also drink water during the school day. Mr. Payung highly recommends this!
