This activities code is designed to establish a reasonable, high standard for participants in co-curricular activities that empower our participants to make appropriate decisions, rather than to be punitive and deny access to such activities. Co-curricular activities are a privilege and completely voluntary. Along with this privilege comes the expectation of a higher standard of behavior and conduct. Participants in these activities are considered to be in positions of leadership representing themselves, their families, the team, school, district and community.
As a condition of participation in co-curricular activities,
participants will be asked during online registration to review the Athletic Code of Conduct and agree to abide by the code for the entire school year during which they wish to participate. During the online registration process, parents, guardians and/or legal custodians shall indicate that they have reviewed the rules, and that their student athlete is expected to abide by them.
All members of the community, including students, parents, staff and community members should be alert and aware of the behavior of participants, and should follow up on concerns brought to their attention by reporting to district personnel. District personnel should, in turn, report alleged violations to the building administration for investigation.
