Non-Public School Participants (Home School, Private Schools, ETC)

SB 157 (June 2021) Pursuant to SB 157, students in home or nonpublic schools may not be denied the ability to participate in extracurricular activities solely based on their enrollment in the students’ resident district. Home and nonpublic school students may ONLY participate in their resident district, and there is no ability for a home or nonpublic school student to “transfer” to another district for purposes of participation in extracurricular activities.

Once a student participates in any extracurricular activity in a particular school, that is the only school that student may participate at during the student’s high school activities career.

Please email us weekly grade checks every Wednesday. That is your responsibility as a non-public school participant.

Chain of Command

Parents and players must follow the chain of command AFTER 24 hours has passed for complaints and issues.

  • Always wait 24 hours before talking with the  person.
  • If you have a concern, please do not talk to them on the field, pitch, course or court after a  contest.
    • We believe in our  coaches and expect  them to be professional  in all aspects of their  duties.

Parents Code of Conduct

  1. Model good sportsmanship for your child with your interactions with all involved.
    • Avoid conflicts
  2. Criticism of referees/officials. Ie...name calling
    • Very low pool. Varsity has MOA, subvarsity may not. https://www.mhsa.org/moa
  3. Let coaches coach. Do not coach from bleachers! Confusing and frustrating.
  4. 24 hour rule
  5. Keep negative toxicity away. 

Concessions Help

Concessions would like to ask each level, for each activity,  to choose a night to work in the concessions area. You may  schedule directly with Ms. Finkbeiner! dfinkbeiner@bsd44.org  579-8403

You can organize yourselves for any other special activities  that evening, you may want to raise money for your group.

This will help the concessions immensely for having the  help they need for each contest.
