2017-18 Athletics

ALL students are encouraged to become actively involved in one or more of the sports that we offer, and all students who turn out for a sport are given the opportunity to fully participate. Track is the only sport we offer for 6th grade students. All other sports are for 7th & 8th grade students only.

Due to district wide schedule changes, there are no practices or games on Wednesday this year.

ACADEMIC PROBATION

  •  In order to maintain athletic eligibility, a student shall maintain a C- or higher in all classes. Grades will be checked weekly.
  •  If a student-athlete receives any grade below a C-, regardless of the grade point average, that student-athlete is placed on academic probation for one week. The student-athlete is allowed to continue to attend and participate in practices only. He/she may not participate in athletic contests during this time. Grades will be checked again at the end of the week.

 


If a student continues to earn grades below a C- and/or receive discipline referrals, he/she may not be allowed to participate in athletic competition for the remainder of the season.
