Each orchestra member depends on all other members in order to succeed in orchestra. Records of attendance and tardies will be kept and the lock out policy enforced. Students who are not in the door by the time the bell rings will be lock out and must get a tardy pass before being admitted in the classroom. After the bell, students have 2 minutes to unpack and be in their seats, any musician who is not in their seat by the time class starts will serve detention.
