Absences are reported in advance to the LS Registrar. This is the go-to person for students and is always available to talk to if they need anything. This is the number to call when your child will be late or absent, or for any other issues regarding rehearsals. You can leave a message and explain what’s going on. Students are expected to be there 10-15 minutes early so they are seated and ready to tune at 4:15 sharp. One week notice is required for absences. THANK YOU!
