3 CODE OF CONDUCT I agree that by accepting a role in Ho-Ho-Kus Public School s spring musical, I will follow the code of conduct as stated. 1. I understand that by being part of this production, I am making a large commitment. I will take this commitment very seriously and make this show a priority. 2. I will not miss more than three rehearsals. If I miss more than three rehearsals, I will be asked to leave the show. (Exceptions may be made in the case of illness and family emergencies, or under other circumstances. See Mr. Michaliszyn, Mrs. Holsten, or Mr. Takagi in these cases.) 3. I will arrive at all rehearsals on time and stay until the scheduled end unless I have discussed it prior to the day of rehearsal with the director or assistant director. Otherwise, it will count as half an absence. 4. I will treat my classmates, the staff, and all adult chaperones with a high level of respect. At the end of the school day, I will exit the building at the Middle School doors, walk to the auditorium door and wait there until a teacher allows entry. Once in the auditorium, I will remain there throughout the rehearsal. I will have my snack outside the school building (by the auditorium doors) until a teacher arrives to allow entrance into the auditorium. During the rehearsals I will follow directions and rules set by the adult in charge. During the rehearsals I will not use my cell phone. I will use my school-issued Chromebook for the sole purpose of doing homework. Consequences for inappropriate behavior will be as follows: 1st time warning Warning 2nd time warning Call home 3rd time warning Dismissal from show
