If you are attending a home athletic event, below are a reminder of the expectations
(Remember these were also reviewed at the Awards Assembly on Fri 1/24 and in the Binder Reminder on pg 7)
1. Tickets are $1 for middle school students or FREE if you have a Renaissance Sticker (from any Quarter this year)
2. You must enter the gym immediately afterschool and once inside, you must stay in the gym until you are picked up by parents. You may not exit & re-enter as supervision is only assigned inside the gym. Parents must come to the gym doors for your release-we will not allow students to wander around campus or the parking lot to look for their ride--so please notify your parents that they must park and then come to the gym doors to get you.
3. Restrooms inside the gym are open for your use.
4. Water is the only drink/food allowed inside the gym.
5. Since athletic events are school sponsored activities, all school rules still apply (dress code, no chewing gum, appropriate behavior/language, etc).
6. Students must be picked up promptly (within 10 to 15 minutes) after the final game.
7. Violation of expectations may result in your parent being called to pick you up early as well as eliminating you from the privilege of attending future events (which we don't want to happen!)
