Presently, a student must be in grades 9-12 to participate in any high school extracurricular activity. For athletic participation, a student must pass a pre-sports physical exam. Arrangements may be made by the school nurse for end of school year physicals to be administered to all prospective fall athletes. Students, who do not take advantage of the end of school year physical, will be responsible for securing their own physical during the summer or early during the fall semester. A physical examination form signed by a physician and a parental release must be on file at the office BEFORE tryouts, practice, or competition.
The following policy regarding academic performance applies to all extra-curricular activities, including athletics, M.U.N, Music, Drama, etc.
Before becoming a participant in any extracurricular activity, a copy of the Extra Curricular Code shall be reviewed and signed by parents/guardians and students acknowledging they understand and agree with these policies. This shall be placed on file for future reference.
Total abstention from alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drug use will be strictly enforced. Participants found to be using any of these substances will be excluded from extra-curricular activities for the remainder of that sports/activity season. Additional disciplinary consequences may also apply if the use occurred during a school-sanctioned event. If the infraction occurs during the last two weeks of a sports/activity season, the student is also ineligible for the following sports/activity season. Offenders will forfeit the right to letter, if applicable, in that activity.
If school uniforms and/or equipment are issued, they are to be returned in the same condition of issuance (normal wear and tear are expected). Replacement costs will be assessed for damaged or lost items. No exchange of uniforms/equipment is permitted without sponsor approval. Uniforms are to be worn only for competition, unless otherwise approved by the faculty sponsor.
All co-curricular and extra-curricular activities sponsored and/or funded by DoDDS Pacific will be covered by the rules as outlined above.
A student may appeal any decision affecting participation in an extracurricular activity to the Extracurricular Eligibility Committee. The Committee will make a recommendation, based on its findings, to the principal for final authority on the matter. The Committee shall be composed of the assistant principal, two faculty advisors, two parents and a student.
Sponsors are responsible for the selection of participants. The sponsor or coach is responsible for enforcing the rules. The sponsor is also free to enact additional rules and guidelines, as they deem appropriate, for their team/group and the situation at hand. This may include, but is not limited to: conduct and behavior, dress, meeting and study session times, curfews, etc.
Parents are expected to support and help enforce these rules and standards. Questions concerning these policies should be discussed, in an appropriate conference situation, with the Extracurricular Eligibility Committee.
Students are responsible for obtaining assignments for the time they miss school and complete them while away. Tests should be made-up promptly. Please make arrangements with your teachers.
