The Athletic department would like to remind all student athletes and parent/guardians of student athletes that student athletes are required to be in class every day for all 7 periods. A parental note is not an excused absence.
We would also like to remind all student athletes that they are required to change and participate in pe in order to participate in a practice or game that day.
Attention: New Policy. If a student athlete receives more than 2 tardies from class during a week period- they are suspended for a contest. It is important that our student athletes understand the important of being on time and working hard in all of their classes each day.
And finally a reminder that all of our student athletes have made a commitment to excellence and therefore should be attending practice every day and failure to do so may lead to dismissal from the their team
