New Athletics and Activities Code of Conduct

Participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities is an important learning opportunity provided by Stafford County Public Schools.  Participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities provides opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in a context beyond the classroom, particularly in the areas of communication, collaboration, and leadership.

The Stafford County School Board recently approved an Athletics and Activities Code of Conduct for our students, staff and fans.  This code of conduct will be shared with our community, coaches, students and parents over the summer and throughout the school year.

Please keep in mind that participation in athletic and extra-curricular activities is not a right.  Failure to meet expectations outlined in this document, as well as in School Board Policy and the Student Code of Conduct, will result in disciplinary action.

Work hard. Play hard. Represent us well!
 
To read the Code of Conduct, click here.
