|The Senior Prom was great on Friday, but how much time out of school is too much?|
So today is the annual "Senior Skip Day" at BHS. We just had our senior prom on Friday where the routine for seniors was to get a dismissal not at 10:30 to prepare for the prom. I decided to remind student-athletes of our handbook rule from page 45 which states:
"Students who are excused tardy to school or dismissed during the school day must obtain the permission of an administrator to participate in an activity that day."I cannot in good conscience excuse students from classes for a social event and then allow them to participate in an interscholastic athletic event. Maybe we need to do a better job enforcing this rule every other day.
While I am excited for all of the exciting celebratory activities coming up for the Class of 2011, I know that there is still work to be done.
