Academic Standards For Athletics and Activities (Band, Choir, Speech, Cheer, Dance)

Student-athletes are required to maintain at least a 2.0 accumulative GPA or be making continuous progress. Grades will be checked at 3-week intervals throughout the school year. Athletes who do not meet the requirements at the 6 week progress report will be on academic probation and must improve to a 2.0 to remain eligible.  In addition, the OSAA requires students pass at least 5 classes the previous semester, be enrolled in & passing 5 classes at the time of competition, and be making satisfactory progress toward graduation. Any time an athlete is found not passing 5 classes, he/she will be ineligible to compete until his/her grades improve. Grades will be checked & the athlete remains ineligible until they are found to be passing 5 classes. Individual coaches may require an athlete to attend an athletic study hall if he/she is failing a class.

Accident Insurance

Student involved in interscholastic activities, Rally, Hi-Steppers, or other physically demanding extra-curricular activities are encouraged to carry personal medical or accidental insurance.

The fee is paid to the Student Services Center. Students must remain current with payment of fees: the school will not "carry over" accumulated debt.

Apply with the athletic director for work service opportunities.  The application form is available, at the top of this page, under "Athletic participation forms."

Attendance

A student must attend ALL classes on a day in order to be eligible to participate in a performance or contest that day. The exception is a school sponsored activity which requires the student to be away from school.

Fan Behavior

It is important for spectators to model the type of positive behaviors we are teaching our athletes. These behaviors include: showing respect for the opponent; showing respect for the officials & accepting their decisions; knowing & understanding the rules; maintaining self control; refraining from making disrespectful remarks or booing. Our athletes are learning to compete to the limits of their ability & do so within the rules and with good sportsmanship. Positive fan support is important and appreciated. However, inappropriate fan behavior will not be tolerated. Fans acting inappropriately will be asked to leave. Please demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times & encourage those around you to do the same.

Lettering

To be eligible for an athletic letter award, the athlete must complete the requirements & receive the recommendation of the head coach of that sport.

Physical Examinations

All students participating in interscholastic athletics, Cheerleading, & Hi-Steppers are required to have a physical examination prior to participation of any kind or show proof of a recent examination.

Physical emaminations are only good for two years from the date of the examination.  In case of serious injury, clearance from your doctor may be necessary before returning to participation in interscholastic athletics.  The physical form is available, at the top of this page, under "Athletic participation forms."
