Announcements and Important Events
We are off to a great start to the Spring Sport Season but there have been concerns regarding school attendance and its effect on athletic participation. In accordance with the Port Washington High School Activities Code, we just want to remind all student athletes and parents that it is expected that student athletes attend school for the entire day to be eligible to compete or practice. How late is too late? if a student is to enter their first period class after instruction has begun, this is too late. What if a Competition the night before goes late into the evening? Student athletes are still expected to be in class before the first period bell rings.
From the Activities Code
V. Attendance 1.
To be eligible to participate in a competition or practice a student must be in attendance the entire school day unless pre-approved by the administration. Excused absences will be accepted for professional appointments: Physician, Dentist, Funerals, etc. For professional appointments, a parent must provide verification for and from the service provided.
