Various intramural sporting and fitness opportunities are available for student participation. Interscholastic athletes are not allowed to participate in intramural activities. Please note that before beginning his participation in a particular interscholastic sport, a student must provide proof on a Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association form that he has had a physical examination in the six weeks prior to the starting date of the sport.
In order to be eligible for an interscholastic activity or sport, a student must pass six full-credit subjects each week during a grading period. Failure to meet these standards means that a student may be ineligible to participate in an extracurricular activity. Each student is reviewed for eligibility regularly. A student at each marking period must pass all full-credit courses and have a Grade Point Average of 2.0. Failure to achieve these criteria means that a student will lose his eligibility for a period of time determined by the Principal, in consultation with guidance counselors and the Athletic Director.
If a student is absent from school, he may not participate in any school-related activity that day, even as a spectator, without being considered truant. To participate in an activity, a student must be in school by 10:00 a.m. the day of the activity. Excused absences may be exceptions.
It has become a necessity to formalize and enforce policies restricting unsupervised activity on campus even as we emphasize the freedom that we expect our students to enjoy in a responsible way. Should your son experience an unexpected injury, we need to have a staff member who is directly responsible for your son’s appropriate care.
To this end, please note that only students under the direct supervision of a staff member may stay after school. Supervised study is available in the library from dismissal until 4:45 p.m. From 4:45 p.m. until late bus pickup at 5:00 p.m., students are to wait in the Firebird Fieldhouse Main Lobby Area for their transportation home. With the exception of the library, the academic buildings close at 4:00 p.m. No one may be on campus after 5:00 p.m. who is not under the direct supervision of a staff member. No one may wait at school for activities that begin beyond 5:00 p.m. The campus may not be used for athletic “pickup” games of any kind or any other sports activity not under the direct supervision of a staff member.
Once a student has finished an activity, he must either get transportation off campus or report to the library if prior to 4:45 p.m., or the Firebird Fieldhouse Main Lobby if between 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Students remaining on campus beyond 5:00 p.m. must be under the direct supervision of a staff member or they risk disciplinary action.
