2016/2017 Band Handbook
It is expected that all members of the Bear River Bands to follow the procedures and rules of the band without question. Remember that our rules are basically common sense, and that each rule is set up to allow the band and its students to have safe, enjoyable and successful educational experiences.
In the event that a student does break a band rule, the following consequences will occur:
- 1st offense - reminder of correct procedures and band policy
- 2nd offense - teacher assigned detention
- 3rd offense - office referral/parent conference
If there is a need to remove a student from the classroom during rehearsal, the student will lose all participation points for the day (see "Grading").
Note: Repeated office referrals will result in removal from the band program.
Severe breaches of policies and procedures (those actions that disrupt a performance or class or that jeopardize the safety of other students) will be referred to the office immediately and will not receive the benefit of a warning. Remember that all NJUHSD rules are in effect at all times when students travel with and/or perform with the band.
