Our athletic director Mr. Goedhart would also like to let staff members know the following message:

“I would like to update staff on the grade-check policy used for athletics.  All athletes in season (right now cross country, cheer, football, girls golf, girls tennis, and girls volleyball) must a complete grade-check every Friday.  Players failing to do so will not be a to participate without the form turned in.  This was actually misinformed on the first teacher’s meeting which stated Mondays, however the actual date is Fridays.  Teachers please leave the most accurate grade as possible as these do not effect eligibility but can possibly effect playing time for players struggling.  Eligibility is determined on the previous semesters grades. Grade-checks are also used for attendance verification as players must come to school to practice and play in games.  Grade-checks are also used to monitor behavior for the coaches.   If any students are getting into trouble in class please email me and I will forward the message to the player’s.  Finally, do not let players out of your class to get their grade-check signed for a different period, it is the player responsibility to do so during their class period or on their own time.”

Grade-checks can be found attached to Mr. Goedhart’s email.
