All information regarding school-sponsored activities will be found here.
Remember you need a Sports Physical, an Activity Consent form, and a Concussion Awareness form on file BEFORE you can try out OR go to practices!
To be eligible for participation in a school-sponsored student group that prepares students for ASAA sanctioned groups in high school, JH students must have a 2.0 (C) grade point average with no more than one F at the end of the most recent grading period.
Students not meeting this eligibility requirement shall have a ten-school-day probationary period at the beginning of the sports season in which they participate, during which they must meet the eligibility guidelines as outlined in Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Administrative Regulation 955.21.
Please be aware that coaches may have their own policies regarding grade checks, practice, and eligibility above and beyond the minimum requirements in the handbooks.
