Department of Defense Education Activity

All after school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, sports, etc.)will normally meet only on days that the school follows a full day schedule, NOT on early release days. There is no extra-curricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be sent to the parent along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, students will be notified through the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.

Sponsors of clubs and extracurricular activities determine academic and behavioral (disciplinary) requirements that students must meet to participate in school sponsored extracurricular activities or to hold a leadership position in a curriculum-related club, team or student organization.


Blackhawk Sports

Welcome to the home of the Blackhawks! HHS values sportsmanship and our athletic staff uphold ethical and moral standards and demand the same from our student athletes.

Humphreys High School participates in both interscholastic and Far East sports and follow all rules and policies accordingly.

Athletic Eligibility

Students must maintain academic eligibility to participate in athletics. Academic eligibility is determined by grade point average (GPA) or number of failing courses. If a student has less than a 2.0 GPA or more than one F, that student is academically ineligible to compete in scheduled games.

Academic eligibility is determined on a weekly basis; grade checks are completed each Tuesday, and if an athlete is ineligible, the period of ineligibility lasts from Wednesday through Tuesday of the next week.

Three instances of academic ineligibility will result in the loss of the athletic letter and may result in dismissal from the team. The Athletic Lettering Policy must be signed by students and parents as acknowledgement of the consequences of academic ineligibility.

A student declared ineligible is allowed to practice but cannot dress in uniform for home games until regaining eligibility.

Coaches and parents should monitor the academic progress of players on a weekly basis. Coaches may make special arrangements or arrange academic interventions with other faculty to assist students in improving academic progress and earning better grades; however, it is the responsibility of parents and students to maintain academic eligibility.

Attendance Prior to Events

A student must attend at least two full periods of the school day on the day of competition or the full school day immediately prior if the competition is on a weekend, holiday, or the last full school day prior to the team traveling.
