#7, 8, & 9
In order to participate in an athletic activity or practice on any given day, an athlete or manager must report to school by 9:15am and must remain in school that entire day. Exceptions may be made for Doctor or Dental appointments or reasons excused by the Principal. (A Doctor/Dental note is required for this exception)
Any athlete or manager serving suspension or in-school restriction for violation of school rules will be ineligible to practice or play in a scheduled event on the day or days he/she is serving the punishment, including Saturdays. Not eligible to practice or play in a game until the day after the last day of ISR/OSS.
Any athlete or manager who uses or possesses tobacco, drugs, or alcohol during a sports season will be dismissed from the team. LCPS has a zero tolerance policy. Different from many neighboring school systems.
Scholarship Rule Student athletes must be currently enrolled in not fewer than 5 subjects and have passed 5 subjects the preceding semester. ◦ A subject for which credit has previously been granted may not, if repeated, be used by any student to satisfy the requirements of this rule.
Semester Rule The student shall not have been enrolled in the last four years of high school for a period of more than eight consecutive semesters, beginning with the semester in which he/she was enrolled for the first time in ninth grade. Awards Rule Students may receive permissible awards presented and approved by the school and VHSL - see VHSL handbook and AD!
Independent Team Rule Student responsibility for sports participation. During the sports season for the relevant sport, a student may, while a member of a school squad or team engage in interscholastic sports become a member of or participate with an organized team in the same sport which is independent of the school’s control so long as such participation does not conflict with the school squad or team. Choices Communication is the key!
