Generally, a student must be in school on the day of an activity in order to participate in that activity. Exceptions for unusual circumstances may be made by the principal.
Senior High: If participants have not earned credits in four academic subjects the previous semester, they will be ineligible to participate for four weeks. During the semester, passing grades must be maintained on a weekly basis in at least four academic subjects or they will be ineligible the following week.
Middle School: Participants must be passing all subjects, on a weekly basis, in order to participate in school activities that involve other schools regardless of the team/group that the student is a member (i.e.; 7th, 8th, or high school team/group).
