FROM THE OFFICE OF STUDENT AFFAIRS

Attendance & Participation in Extracurricular Activities Reminder: Students are expected to be on time for school.  Students arriving to school after 8:45 are required to present a note explaining the lateness. " If a student is absent from school or arrives after 8:45 am due to an unexcused lateness, he or she may not participate in any organized school activities that day or night.  If the absence occurs on a Friday, the student may be excluded from participation in school functions on the following Saturday as well.  Note:   Students sent home sick by the nurse are not allowed to return to school that day for any performance, athletic event or extracurricular activity (Student Handbook, 23)."

Spring sports physicals were due to the nurse's office by March 2nd.

11th grade parents are reminded that all Juniors need a physical exam.  If your child had a physical that's under one year old, please have a physical form completed by your doctor based on that physical.  If your child hasn't had a recent physical, please schedule an appointment.  Physical forms are available in the nurse's office and on the school website under "Athletics."  The same form is used whether or not your child plays a sport.  Please return completed forms as soon as possible.  Please call the nurse with any questions.
