Attendance Policy • A student must be present a full school day if they are to participate in a contest/performance on that school day. However, students are allowed two tardies (arrive to school prior to 8:11 a.m.) per semester. After the two tardies they must be present the full day if they are to participate in a contest/performance on that day. Special exceptions such as medical or dental appointments can be approved by the principal 24 hours prior to the appointment. A student must be in attendance for four full periods before he/she is permitted to participate in practice/rehearsal for that day. Attendance at practices and contests is still required.
Schedule Conflicts • When a student’s dual participation in extracurricular activities results in a conflict, the following policy will apply. A “performance,” athletic contest,, or musical concert will have priority over normal practices, meetings, and rehearsals. In the event a practice, meeting, or rehearsal is scheduled at the same time as an athletic contest in which the student participates, the athletic contest has priority and the student is to be excused without penalty from the activity. Conversely, in the event a music or other activity performance conflicts with an athletic practice, the performance take priority and the athlete is excused from the athletic practice without penalty.
Club vs. School Sport • It is vital that coaches, parents, and athletes understand the commitment they make when joining a team and how difficult it is to honor those commitments when participating in more than one sport during a season. We expect the school sport to take precedent over a club sport in the event of a conflict. • Please communicate with the coach if your child is going to be involved in a club sport during their season so that you can work out ahead of time potential conflicts.
Non-Interscholastic Athletics • A member of an interscholastic team / squad sponsored by the Board of Education shall not participate in a non-interscholastic program (tryouts, practice, or contest) as an individual or a member of a team in the sport during the school’s athletic season.
