Absence from School on Day of Activity

Student athletes must attend the entire school day in order to participate that afternoon or evening in any extracurricular game, contest, or performance. An athlete who is absent from school on the day of an activity is ineligible for any activity on that day unless the absence has been approved in writing by the superintendent. Exceptions may be made for the following reasons: 1) for a medical absence pre-arranged with the school or 2) for a death in the athlete's family. An athlete who has one or more truancies or who has been suspended from school will be suspended from participation in athletic activities by administration. An athlete who is absent from school on a Friday before a Saturday event will be withheld from participating in Saturday’s activities.
