We believe that participation in extra-curricular performances, CWSP events, college visits, sporting events, school ambassador events and special off-campus trips is a privilege, not a right. This privilege is granted to students who uphold the ideals of leadership community role model, display good citizenship, abide by the rules and regulations of the school community and the Minnesota State High School League where applicable, and commit themselves to academic success. Participants in extra-curricular activities represent more than themselves when they compete or perform. People often judge our community by the conduct and attitude displayed by athletes or performers, whether the students are in or out of school. Therefore, students involved in extra-curricular activities or special events are expected to maintain a high standard of conduct and follow all rules as outlined in the school handbook and any rules iterated by the event/team organizers, coaches and leaders.
All students are expected to behave in a mature way at any extra-curricular event. It is expected that our students will stand in a respectful way for the National Anthem, school songs and will only use cheers that are appropriate and positive. Harassment of game officials or coaches and players will not be tolerated. Any student found misbehaving at any extra-curricular event will lose the right to attend such events with further consequences possible. Any student involved with violence related to poor sportsmanship at athletic contests or any special event will be subject to dismissal from school.
Students who wish to participate in extra-curricular activities and off-campus events must be on the Loyola List, or have been approved to participate by a school administrator.
Given the nature of our work-study program, conflicts will arise between work schedules and practices, games and activities. Work always takes precedence over extra-curricular activities. A student may not miss any work in order to participate, nor should the student ask their supervisor for an exception under any circumstance.
