ELIGIBILITY

Students must meet the following criteria to participate in class activities:

·        50 Service Learning Hours

·        No more than 5 Lateness (must be cleared only through Late Detention)

·        Sophomore Status (at least 5 credits): You should have received a letter from your counselor saying you are not eligible to participate if you have failed courses and haven’t attended Summer School.

Tickets will only be sold to students who meet the criteria for eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure he/she meets all requirements to attend and resolves any restrictions in a timely manner. Eligibility will be checked by Ms. Sellers (Counselor) and Mrs. Riddick (Dean of Discipline) and verified by advisers. If a student is unable to participate in an activity due to an emergency, refunds will be dealt with on an individual case basis. In some instances, it may not be possible to issue refunds due to paying deposits for events ahead of time. Refunds will not be issued for eligibility issues. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Watson or Ms. Thaler. We look forward to a memorable sophomore year.
