It's going to depend on why they're excused, and how much notice they gave me. |
If it's a legit reason (puking sick, grandma died for real, family wedding, COVID quarantine) I usually just mark it "excused" in the gradebook and it doesn't factor into their grade at all.
For a more borderline reason I'll have them make a recording of themselves playing the show music and/or some stand tunes, whatever we were really focusing on that week. Once I made a kid march the entire show, in uniform, on our practice field. I graded him very strictly on every direction change, horns up/down, music performance etc. I don't even remember what he did, but I remember the video. He had his little sister do the video and she was laughing uncontrollably the whole time.
