A note from home is not sufficient.
Student-athletes are required to take D211 transportation to and from extracurricular events. Student-athletes who wish to return home from an event with their parent, must seek approval from the coach and Athletic Director prior to the event. Student-athletes are not permitted to be transported by anyone other than D211 or their own parent.
