Attendance and Athletics/Activities

Participation in a school-sponsored activity requires that the student must be in attendance at school on the day of the activity. The student must arrive at school no later than 9:14 a.m. to fulfill this attendance requirement. An unexcused tardiness, even when the student arrives prior to 9:14 a.m., could declare a participant ineligible and prevent him/her from participating in a co-curricular activity. Students with appointments during the school day should plan accordingly and make every effort to miss no more than the equivalent of two periods.

The student must be in attendance the day before a holiday if the activity falls on a holiday or the following day. Exceptions to this procedure may be presented to the administration for review on a case-by-case basis. Whenever possible, pre-approval for an absence from school on a school-sponsored activity day should be requested. Students experiencing academic difficulty may be denied the privilege to participate in a co-curricular activity.
