Attendance rules for contests:Attendance, for four periods, the day of a contest is required to be eligible for the contest that day.Arrangements in advance for extenuating circumstances, such as doctor/dentist appointments, funerals, or other activities, can be made with the building Principal in writing.Every attempt should be made to be in attendance the day of a contest.Sleeping in to rest up for the game will not be considered an extenuating circumstance, nor will going home ill and then returning to play in the contest later that day.


Please make sure you check out all library books, don't just take them from the shelf. It is very frustrating when someone wants a book that the online catalog says is available but then not on the shelf because some has just taken it.Please remember there are other people in the school who might want to read that book also.
