ATHLETICS ATTENDANCE POLICY
Parents & Coaches-
Information on student/athletes attendance in school has been brought up at the district level. There are requirements that each student/athlete must adhere to in order to be eligible for games and practices. Please discuss this over with your athletes and/or sons or daughters, in order for them to be eligible to participate for games or practices in regards to attendance. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Mr. DePerry at Lake Harriet 612-668-3310.
Attendance Procedures and Requirements
Attendance – Policy 5100 Amended
On April 13, 2010 the Board of Education amended Policy 5100 – Attendance. The Superintendent has promulgated Regulations 5100 A – Rules and Procedures: Attendance, 5100 B – Attendance Expectations and Interventions, and 5100 C – Enforcement of Compulsory Instruction. This policy and these regulations can now be found on the Policy pages of the District website @ http://policy.mpls.k12.mn.us/5000_Students.html . Just click on the pdf document button for Policy 5100, or Regulations 5100 A, 5100 B and 5100 C to download the policy and regulations.
A. Beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, for the purpose of eligibility for co-curricular or extra-curricular activities (including athletics), an unexcused absence in one or more classes in one school day makes the student ineligible to participate in those activities on that same day.
B. If a student is suspended from school, he/she will not be allowed to participate in any athletic contest for the remainder of the school day, regardless if the student is re-admitted back to school on the same day of the suspension. Student must also serve the entire suspension before he/she is allowed to practice or participate in any contest.
Students experiencing academic difficulties may be restricted from participating in co-curricular activities occurring during school hours upon consultation with the student’s parent. (over)
Students removed from instruction or suspended are not eligible to participate in co-curricular or extra-curricular activities on the day they are removed from instruction, or during the days of the suspension (including athletics).
Game Suspensions for the Minneapolis Public Schools Attendance Rule When counting contests for suspensions in the Minneapolis Public Schools Attendance Policy, the MSHSL definition of contests will be employed. (Example: volleyball or wrestling tournament - 1 contest each basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. game = contest). Also, athletes that participate at more than one level of competition cannot pair these contests for the purpose of serving the penalty. Suspensions are at their primary level of participation and contests at all other levels that may fall between contests.
The only class absences that are exempt from this rule and regulation are those that occur when the school requires the student to participate in an alternate activity, or when such absences are due to official religious observances.
The Superintendent of Schools or his/her designee is responsible for identifying the activities for which students may be exempted. In each case, the school (or governmental agency) stipulates the place of attendance other than the classroom.
Approved Required Activities
1. Administration of the district’s testing program
2. Instructional field trips
3. Athletic contests
4. Court ordered appearances
5. Absences due to district error such as late arriving school buses
6. Activities requested by school or district personnel such as student council, academic appeals hearing committee, etc.

8. Absence due to medical reason (written excuse with doctor’s stamp required)
9. Fall 2010 – College visits (Limited to two (2) days per year.)
Other activities resulting in absences from the classroom that are school-related or school-sponsored but which are voluntarily participated in by the student are not exempt.
