The program's goals are to help build physical skills, develop a positive spirit of competition and school pride and emphasize cooperation, recreation and fun.
In order to participate, you must have the following on file in the office before the cut-off dates provided in your handbook: sports physical*, Consent for Emergency Care form, Conduct Code signed by you and your parent, proof of insurance, and an eligibility grade check. New students, medical excuses or emergencies will be the only exception to the cut–off dates.
Doctors usually will not give physicals on the “spur of the moment,” so please take your athletic physicals early in the year.
Every student participating on an athletic team is issued a uniform and is responsible for returning it to his/her coach at the end of the season. Players are responsible for damage to or loss of their uniforms
Eligibility Grade Checks
A student receiving an F during a two-week grading interval cannot participate in competition and will remain ineligible until the grade is brought up to a passing grade.
All athletes are to return with their coaches from away game unless they have had a note signed by an administrator prior to leaving for competition. A 4:00 activity bus is available to all students participating in sports programs. If a student misses the late bus, s/he must call a parent/guardian for pick-up.
Lockers and Locks
You are assigned a lock and a locker for physical education. Personal locks are not allowed. There is a $7.00 replacement cost if the lock is lost or damaged.
You should never leave money or other valuable items in any school locker. The school is not responsible for, and cannot replace, stolen items. Valuables may be left locked in the coach's office or in the main office safe.
