Participation on an athletic team is a privilege not a right. Student athletes are expected to demonstrate good work and behavior habits.
Grades, attitude and effort on the part of athletes are monitored every five weeks during the school year. Students exhibiting problems on the aforementioned areas may be suspended from participation.
Students failing one course are placed on athletic probation. Those students must attend after school extra-help sessions until grades are brought up.
Students failing two subjects are not allowed to participate in athletic contests until grades are brought back to passing. Those students must attend extra help but may continue to practice.
Students failing three or more subjects may not practice or play. Students under this policy are ineligible for a two week period or until grades are brought up to passing. The Eligibility Committee consisting of the high school principal, athletic director, a guidance counselor and the head of the student association will review grades when requested by the student for change of eligibility status.
