The Parent and Student-Athlete Handbook is the most important document for communicating information regarding athletic eligibility, participation on sports teams, expectations of parent and student-athlete behavior, athletic awards, etc.  To view a PDF of the Athletic Handbook,  please see the "Athletics Locker" above and click on the handbook link.
 
All parents and student-athletes will receive a hard copy of the handbook when they attend the MANDATORY New Student-Athlete and Parent Meeting PRIOR to participating on a sports team at Lodi High School.
 
LUSD BOARD APPROVED POLICY CHANGE REGARDING GRADE CHANGE REQUESTS:
Request for Review/Change of Quarter or Semester Grade
Students or parents who wish to review or challenge a quarter or semester grade must file that request with the teacher in question and the school registrar within the first five (5) school days upon the student’s return to school from the most recent school break or grading period. Teachers will have five (5) school days after the request is made to review the challenge and report a final decision to uphold, adjust or correct the grade to the parent and the school registrar.
This excludes:
1) Obvious and verifiable errors discovered beyond the five-day deadline by the student/parent, teacher, or school registrar;
2) Grade changes related to AP exam results; and
3) The correction of omissions or errors if the reason is due to circumstances beyond the student or teacher’s control.

ATHLETIC CLEARANCE PLEASE READ

ATHLETIC CLEARANCE

LETTER TO PARENTS

Any athlete competing in any school sponsored summer athletic program must have an updated physical to participate.  A physical is valid from May 1st -April 30 of a calendar year.  Also, any returning fall or winter athlete should get their physicals during the scheduled May physicals offered at Lodi High School.

 

Approximately two-six weeks prior to the season, respective coaches will announce times and places for informational and sign-up meetings in the school bulletin.  It is important that prospective athletes attend these meetings and sign-up, so that all paperwork can be verified, and athletic eligibility can be determined prior to the first day of try-outs.  It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to complete the on-line clearance per season of sport so that eligibility can be determined and return signed confirmation form, physical form, and copy of medical insurance.  Student-athletes who miss scheduled try-outs because of incomplete on-line clearance or lack of physical exam may miss the opportunity to try-out.

 

All incoming freshmen are automatically eligible to participate at the beginning of Fall Sports.  Each subsequent grading period will determine athletic eligibility.  All students must maintain a 2.0 Grade Point Average with  no more than one F grade in each grading period.

Before starting practices/try-outs ALL NEW ATHLETES must attend the MANDATORY NEW ATHLETE and PARENT meeting.  A meeting will be scheduled the WEDNESDAY prior to a sports season beginning.  Please check the school bulletin or website for dates and times.

 

The Athletic Department is anxious that returning and incoming student-athletes get off to a positive start with both their academic and athletic careers.  If we can answer any questions, or offer any encouragement, please call us at 331-7666, or drop by our office located in the South Gym and meet us.
