PTHS Student Handbook 2020-2021


TRAINING RULE C The Athletic Director and Administration reserves the right to judge each disciplinary case involving a violation of Section II Rule C on an individual basis. It should be understood that each case possesses its own unique set of circumstances which prohibits it from comparison to any other case. The nature of the conduct shall determine the consequences of the violation. Consequences can range from a verbal reprimand to removal from PTHS activity/athletic participation. DETERMINATION OF SUSPENSION LENGTH Only regular season contests will be counted when determining suspension length. In assessing the penalty, if the number of regular season contests comes to a decimal point less than 0.5, the penalty will be rounded down. If the number of contests comes to a decimal point that is equal to or more than 0.5, the penalty will be rounded up. This also applies to carryover suspensions. COMBINATION OF TRAINING RULES VIOLATIONS Any combination of training rules violations will at minimum result in the student-athlete being removed from their current participating sport for the remainder of the season. CARRYOVER SUSPENSIONS A suspension may go beyond the season in which the infraction occurs. The percentage of suspension remaining must be completed during the next season of participation and the athlete must finish the season with the carryover suspension in good standing. For example, if a student athlete had completed one-half (1/2) of the suspension at the end of the current season, one-half (1/2) of the suspension will carry over to the next athletic season he/she participates. STUDENT ATHLETE DUTY TO COOPERATE PTHS will follow due process procedures and will not suspend a student athlete without evidence that a training rules violation has occurred. The Student Athlete has a duty to cooperate in the investigation of any alleged violations of the Athletic/Activity Code by the school administration, including but not limited to coaches, Athletic Director, Assistant Principal, and Principal. This duty shall include answering honestly any questions about alleged violations of the Code. If the investigation concerns violations by the Student Athlete, if he or she refuses to answer any question or otherwise refuses to cooperate, it shall be presumed that he or she has committed the alleged violation(s) and he or she shall be subject to the appropriate consequence set forth in the Code for that violation. STUDENT ATHLETE CONCUSSIONS AND HEAD INJURIES Student athletes must comply with Illinois’ Youth Sports Concussion Safety Act and all protocols, policies and bylaws of the Illinois High School Association before being allowed to participate in any athletic activity, including practice or competition. A student who was removed from practice or competition because of a suspected concussion shall be allowed to return only after all statutory prerequisites are completed, including without limitation, the School District’s return-to-play and return-to-learn protocols. PRACTICE ATTENDANCE Participants must attend all practice sessions, unless excused by the coach prior to any absence. If a practice session is missed unexcused, the athlete will not participate in the next contest. CURFEW Curfew Hours: Sunday through Thursday--10 P.M. Friday and Saturday—11 P.M. All student-athletes shall observe the curfew hours as well as the hours set up by the coach of the sport he/she is engaged. Any reported violation of curfew hours will be handled by the Coach and Athletic Director. The nature of the conduct shall determine the consequences of the violation. Consequences can range from a verbal reprimand to removal from PTHS activity/athletic participation.
