Attendance Policy:

1. Runners must attend practice every school day. Practices may sometimes be cancelled due to weather, etc.
2. Practices are Mondays 6:00 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. and Tuesdays through Fridays 2:00 p.m. through 3:45 p.m.
3. If an athlete is going to miss practice, the parent should call, email or send a signed note to the coach before the absence if at all possible. Otherwise, after the absence the athlete must bring a parent signed note verifying the absence. This note must be turned in to the coach by the 2nd day after returning from the absence.
4. If the athlete is to have a regularly occurring absence (for example – they have band practice on Fridays) one parent note will be acceptable.
5. If the athlete cannot attend the Monday morning practice the athlete needs to make up that practice by running on their own, 4 miles minimum, the weekend before the absence. The parent should send a note or an email verifying the completion of the run to excuse their Monday practice.
6. If an athlete fails to bring in a verification note or that note is turned in later than 2 days after the absence, the absence will be marked unexcused.
7. Any athlete that gets 3 unexcused absences will be removed from the team.
8. If the athlete makes the Volleyball team, see Mr. Lister to arrange a workout schedule.
