ATHLETIC/EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY/FIELD TRIP ELIGIBILITY
Participation in school events is a privilege, not a right, and may be denied to any student who has demonstrated disregard for the rules of the school. Participation includes any/all aspects of an event, including attendance as a spectator. Students are seen as ambassadors for South Side when they participate in athletic events, extracurricular activities, and field trips. Grade requirements, attendance guidelines, and adherence to school rules and regulations are held to be legitimate exercises of authority. Students may be excluded from social events, class trips, and field trips due to academic, attendance, or disciplinary deficiencies as per the guidelines below:
 
1. Attendance – Students who report later than 11:00 a.m. are not permitted to stay after school for any reason. In order to stay for an after school activity, students must be in school for four class periods or two blocks. Prom day is a noon dismissal. Students may not leave before dismissal time if they are planning to attend the prom. Students who have a doctor’s excuse must bring in the excuse before the scheduled event or practice, and the doctor may be contacted to verify the excuse. Any exceptions to these guidelines will be at the discretion of the administration.
2. Grades – Students failing 1 or more full credit classes are NOT permitted to play in a game/match, are NOT permitted to sit on the team bench during a game/match, and are NOT permitted to travel with the team to an away game/match. The student may be permitted to practice with the team at the coach’s discretion.
3. Discipline – Participation in extracurricular and/or athletic events may be denied to any student who has demonstrated disregard for the rules of the school. Students may be excluded from social events, class trips, athletics, and/or field trips due to academic or disciplinary deficiencies at the discretion of the administration. Disciplinary consequences may also be assigned for infractions during athletic and/or extracurricular events at the discretion of the administration.
 
ATHLETIC/EXTRA-CURRICULAR CONDUCT
Students and spectators should display good sportsmanship at all times. Noncompliance may result in temporary or permanent removal of persons from school grounds and possible charges of disorderly conduct filed with the Pennsylvania State Police.
