INFORMED CONSENT:  By its nature, participation in interscholastic athletics includes risk of injury and the transmission of infectious diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis B, herpes and others.  Although serious injuries are not common, and the risk of HIV transmission is almost nonexistent in supervised school athletic programs, it is impossible to eliminate all risk.

2018-2019 MSHSL

All MSHSL eligibility determinations are based on the most current official handbook found at mshsl.org/handbook

Statement to be signed by the participant from a MSHSL member school and by the participant’s parent or guardian each school year prior to participation in that year.

Please check all items:

 

    I have read, understand, and acknowledge receiving the 2018-2019 MSHSL Eligibility Brochure, which contains only a summary of the eligibility rules of the Minnesota State High School League.  I understand that a copy of the Official Handbook of the MSHSL is on file with the senior high school athletic director and or principal and that I may review it, in its entirety, if I so choose.  The Official Handbook and MSHSL bylaws are also posted on the MSHSL website:  www.MSHSL.org under Handbook.

 

    We, the student and parent, have reviewed Concussion Management Recommendations for MSHSL Athletes contained in the Eligibility Brochure and on the following website:  www.cdc.gov/headsup

 

   I understand that once I sign the eligibility statement all eligibility rules apply:

  • Twelve (12) months of the year;
  • Whether I am currently participating or not;
  • Continuously from the first signing of the statement through the completion of my high school eligibility.

 

    Regardless of my age I agree to follow all of the MSHSL Bylaws in order to be eligible to represent my school in League-sponsored activities.

 

    I further understand that a member school of the MSHSL must adhere to all of the rules and regulations that pertain to the League athletics/activities a school may sponsor and that local rules may be more stringent, and penalties more severe, than MSHSL rules.

 

STUDENT CODE OF RESPONSIBILITIES

    As a student participating in my school’s interscholastic activities, I understand and accept the following responsibilities:

  • I will respect the rights and beliefs of others and will treat others with courtesy and consideration.
  • I will be fully responsible for my own actions and the consequences of my actions.
  • I will respect the property of others.
  • I will respect and obey the rules of my school and the laws of my community, state and country.
  • I will show respect to those who are responsible for enforcing the rules of my school and the laws of my community, state and country.

A student whose character or conduct violates the Student Code of Responsibilities or is suspended or expelled is not in good standing and is ineligible for a period of time as determined by the principal.  While a student not in good standing, a student may not serve any penalty for MSHSL Bylaw violations.

 

    Informed Consent:  By its nature, participation in interscholastic athletics includes risk of injury and the transmission of infectious diseases such as HIV, Herpes and Hepatitis B and others.  Although serious injuries are not common, and the risk of HIV transmission is almost nonexistent in supervised school athletic programs, it is impossible to eliminate all risk.  Participants have the responsibility to help reduce that risk.  Participants must obey all safety rules, report all physical and hygiene problems to their coaches, follow a proper conditioning program, and inspect their own equipment daily.  PARENTS, GUARDIANS OR STUDENTS WHO MAY NOT WISH TO ACCEPT THE RISK DESCRIBED IN THIS WARNING SHOULD NOT SIGN THIS FORM.  STUDENTS MAY NOT PARTICIPATE IN AN MSHSL-SPONSORED ACTIVITY WITHOUT THE STUDENT’S AND PARENT’S/GUARDIAN’S SIGNATURE.

 

    I consent to the athletic trainer or coach treating injuries and authorize them to discuss those injuries with and release any applicable medical information or records relating to those injuries to coaches, school staff and other qualified health care providers as deemed necessary within their scope of practice.

 

    I further understand that in the case of injury or illness requiring transportation to a health care facility, that a reasonable attempt will be made to contact the parent or guardian in the case of the student-athlete being a minor, but that, if necessary, the student-athlete will be transported via ambulance to the nearest hospital.

 

    By signing this we acknowledge that we have read the information contained in the 2018-2019 MSHSL Eligibility Brochure and Statement.

 

    I/we acknowledge the electronic signature confirms I/we have read and reviewed the information contained in the contents of the Eligibility Brochure and Statement. I/we also acknowledge this electronic signature has the same legal effect, validity, and enforceability as a signature in a non-electronic form.

The student/parent authorizes the release of documents and other pertinent information by the school in order to determine student eligibility.  In addition, the student/parent understands and agrees that public information shall include names and pictures of students participating in or attending extra-curricular activities, school events, and High School League activities or events.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

I am a home school student?  YES     NO          I am an online student?  YES     NO

Liability Release

Waiver:  In consideration of your accepting this entry, I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators, waive any and all rights and claims for damages I have against Spectrum High School and/or it's representatives, successors and assigns for any and all injuries suffered by me or by my child while a participant or spectator at the activity for this registration.  My electronic signature at the end of this registration form acknowledges my agreeing to this waiver.
 

 

Academic Eligibility Requirements

Bylaw 108.1 of the Minnesota State High School League states that in order to maintain scholastic eligibility a student must make satisfactory progress toward graduation.

Academic Eligibility Policy

Academics are highly valued and are the top priority for students at Spectrum.  It is expected that each student will work to his or her full potential.

Student-athletes must meet the following academic eligibility requirements and follow these guidelines to remain eligible for participation in athletics:

  1.  Students must maintain a cumulative 2.0 grade point average and may not be failing any classes.  Students may not have more than one D during grade checks.
  2. Grade checks will be completed on a regular basis.  Once given a warning, the student will have one week to meet the minimum academic eligibility requirements. If the student does not meet the minimum academic eligibility requirements after the one week of warning, they will become ineligible for completion and immediately begin serving their athletic competition suspension.  Grades for theater will take place during auditions. 
  3. Students found to be ineligible for athletic competition may not participate in contests until they have raised their grade(s) to meet the minimum academic eligibility requirements.  They may continue to practice at the coach’s discretion. 
  4. Assignment and homework deadlines will not be extended due to participation in athletics and/or activities.
  5. Appeals to athletic suspensions may be brought to the school principal for further review.  Appeals should be accompanied with a completed plan for improvement.  Students with an active Individualized Education Plan (IEP) should have his or her case manager help to determine whether an extension to the academic warning should be granted.  The school principal will make the final determination about whether to grant an extension to meet the minimum academic requirements.
  6. It is the student’s responsibility to meet the minimum academic eligibility requirements.  A student who is suspended must present documentation directly to the athletic director to demonstrate that they meet the minimum academic eligibility requirements.  The athletic director will notify the coach when the student may return to athletic competition. 
  7. Teachers will address work in a timely manner, but are not required to make special considerations to assist the student to achieve his or her academic eligibility.  Students and parents are responsible to understand and agree to the academic eligibility policy.

Uniform Deposit Policy - Spectrum High School
 
To help us do a better job of keeping track of our uniforms and insure that uniforms are turned in after the season in a timely manner, Spectrum High School has instituted the following uniform policy for the 2018-2019 school year. 
 
All athletes are required to make a deposit of $100.00 by check before uniforms are issued.  Deposit checks will be held and not cashed until satisfactory return of the complete uniform (within two weeks of the last game of the season).  Uniforms are the property of Spectrum High School and are not for sale.  If the uniform is lost or unnecessarily damaged, the deposit check will be cashed, and used to cover the cost of replacement. 
 
Upon satisfactory return of the complete uniform(s), you should be contacted via email when your check is shredded.
 
No uniform will be issued until a uniform deposit check for $100 is turned in to Mrs. Bondy.
 
We appreciate your help in making sure that we manage the resources we have available in a proper fashion.
 
We have read and agree to the Uniform Deposit Policy as stated above and agree to return school’s uniform in a timely manner.  My electronic (typed) signature below provides my understanding of this policy.
