    Behavior – as an athlete for Middle School West, our athletes are ambassadors of our school.  As an ambassador of our school, we expect our athletes’ behavior to be exceptional.  We want our athletes to be positive role models for others to see and follow.  

    Important Policies to remember:  

     

    • Students need to be passing all of their classes to be on the team.  Mr. Antony will check to see if athletes  are passing all of their classes at mid-tri.
    • Students need to be in class five full periods of the day in order to practice or run in a meet that night.  Students with a doctor’s appointment may be excused from this requirement if they have documentation from the doctor referencing the appointment.  Make sure to bring this note from the doctor to Mrs. Dodge, our attendance person
    • Your coaches will expect the students to be at practice every day.  Practices are after school Monday through Thursday until 5:00.  Missed practices may result in reduced playing time.  
    • We will bus you to all road meets and back to East.  You may ride home with your parents after road meets rather than the bus if you wish.  You need to have your parent sign out with your coach if you ride home with a parent.  If you are planning to ride home with someone else’s parents, your parents need to notify Mr. Antony of this one day in advance.

     

    Clothes:  make sure to have warm clothes in your locker at all times.  There will be some very cold days in the fall, dress smart.
