District transportation expectations can be found here. General guidelines are:
- Students are expected to take district transportation to events UNLESS there is an academic conflict the prevents being available for the scheduled departure time...(EX: SAT, ACT, PSAT or AP Testing), or a special circumstance cleared in conversation with the Athletic Director.
- Students are expected to take district transportation home from events, but parents may request permission by emailing the Athletic Director prior to 2:00pm the day of the event.
- If emergency off-site adjustments are necessary, there are forms with coaches. If this requires a non-family member to provide transportation, there must be some method of verification from all parties involved.
