    WRMS Student Athlete Academic Standards for Practice and Participation:

    Athletic Grade checks:

    On Friday of each week, administration will run a grade report for all students who are taking part in athletics. The Athletic Director and coaches will be notified about student-athletes earning a D or an F in any class on Tuesday. The first time students will be placed on probation for the duration of the season. The second time a student receives a D or F, they will not be eligible to participate in the next competition and will be unable to participate until their grades have improved to C-'s or above in all of their classes. Some students may require special consideration or individualized arrangements, and the Athletic Director may take these considerations into account when making the final determination about an individual student’s eligibility.
