If students are ineligible at this point they may not regain eligibility until Tuesday, December 13th. Eligibility is based on quarter 1 grades, cornerstones do not impact eligibility. This eligibility check point impacts any students participating on Winter sports in addition to all other extra-curricular activities. Please let me know if you have any questions. The actual eligibility policy for your reference in the text below: Eligibility Any student at Yarmouth High School is eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics if he/she meets the eligibility requirements as established by the MPA and Yarmouth High School. 1. Be enrolled in at least five full courses; and 2. Pass all courses in which he/she is enrolled during the quarter. An incomplete grade will be considered as a failure until it is made up and a grade is given. It should be noted that a student failing one course or receiving one incomplete grade may not participate in games/performances, but is still expected to practice and abide by existing team and code rules and regulations. Students failing two courses or having two incompletes, or any combination which equals two or more cannot participate in games/performances or practices. Ineligibility begins the day report cards are distributed to students. Eligibility will be reinstated on the date published for the distribution of mid-term reports. GO CLIPPERS!
