The schedules posted are fluid and subject to abrupt changes and cancellations.
Current guidelines require all athletes and spectators to wear a mask. Any refusal to comply to this rule will result in being removed from the event.
Athletics Attendance Policy
Students are to attend school during the total school day in order to participate in athletic practices or events during the same day or evening. Should there be a situation whereby a student cannot attend school who would normally receive an excused absence, the student will be allowed to participate in the contest with approval of the building principal or athletic director.
In these cases, a prearranged excuse is required. Examples of excused absences are: funerals, doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, and court appointments.
Parent/student/guardian must provide documentation for such appointments for it to be considered an excused absence.
As a school community, we believe in the importance of cultivating creative compassionate leaders prepared for lifelong success by fostering the intellectual, emotional, and physical well being of each individual.
