Behavior – as an athlete for Middle School West, you are an ambassador of our school. As an ambassador of our school, we expect your behavior to be a positive model for others to see and follow.
Important Policies to remember:
- You need to be passing all of your classes to be on the basketball team. Mr. Antony will check to see if you are passing all of your classes at the mid tri.
- You need to be in class five full periods of the day in order to practice or play in a game that night. If you have a doctor’s appointment, you may be excused from this requirement, but you need to make sure to bring a note to Mrs. Dodge, our attendance person, from the doctor explaining that the appointment took longer than usual.
- Your coaches will expect you 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 games and back to West, but you may ride home with your parent after a game rather than ride the bus back to West. 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.
