TRAVEL All athletes shall travel to athletic events and return home from athletic events with the team on which the athlete competes by use of school approved means of transportation. A written waiver of this rule may be issued by a coach or administrator upon advance written request of an athlete's parent or guardian and provided the parent or guardian appears and accepts custody of the athlete. In no case shall a waiver be issued unless the alternate means of transportation anticipated by the waiver will be provided by the parent. Any student athlete found to be in violation of this policy shall be subject to discipline in accordance with the school district's athletic discipline policies, rules and regulations as provided herein. HIGH SCHOOL ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Eligibility reports shall be generated on Sundays by 2:00 p.m. Student athletes with two (2) F’s will be ineligible from Sunday to Sunday for weekly participation. In order to maintain eligibility for the following semester, a student athlete must have passed a minimum of 25 credit hours from the previous semester excluding physical education. Eligibility for most athletics is also governed by the rules of the Illinois High School Association and, if applicable, these rules will apply in addition to this Athletic Code. In a case of a conflict between IHSA and this Athletic Code, the most stringent rule will be enforced. TRAINING RULES A1.

FIRST OFFENSE : The student-athlete will be suspended for one-third (1/3) of the total contests in the current sport season or the first scheduled sport in which the athlete participates. The athlete must attend all practices and contests and follow all requirements for the sport successfully as set out by the coach for the entire season. Failure to complete in good standing will void any suspension served and the suspension will remain in effect as if no contests have already been served. 2. SECOND OFFENSE : The student-athlete will be suspended from all IHSA athletic activities for one calendar year (365 days) from the date of the offense. The original suspension may be reduced by half (180 days) from the original date of the offense provided the student successfully completes a licensed drug, alcohol, or tobacco treatment program (such as IHR or Chestnut) as approved by the school administration. Random drug screening will follow successful completion of the approved treatment program via the school drug screen provider until the 365 days suspension expires. Successful completion of the treatment program will not be considered by the administration until an official letter from the licensed facility is received. Cost of the treatment program and any required additional testing will be at the athlete’s expense. 3. EACH ADDITIONAL OFFENSE : The student-athlete will be suspended from all IHSA athletic activities for one calendar year (365) days from the date of the offense. NO SUSPENSIONS CAN OVERLAP.
