Patrick Henry Athletic Department
NEW POLICY REGARDING DELINQUENT SCHOOL FEES
To be eligible to participate in any extracurricular activity, a student must pay current SCHOOL FEES and all delinquent school fees from prior years by September 20th of this school year. As an alternative to paying delinquent fees in full, parents will have an opportunity to enter into an installment plan agreement with the district, which allows parents to make incremental payments of $10 per month/per child during the months of September – May to reduce prior years’ outstanding fees. However, payment of the current year’s fees is required.
This handbook has been prepared with the intention of being a reference guide for the rules and regulations now in effect concerning the athletic policies and procedures of the Patrick Henry Local Schools. It is our sincere hope that this handbook will enable you better to understand the policies and procedures established by the Patrick Henry Board of Education.
As an integral factor in the total educational program, the athletic program must be clearly defined. It is our intention that this handbook regulates the necessary procedures and responsibilities that staff and students must follow. In order to carry out his/her professional duties successfully, a coach/advisor must enforce these policies. It will not only aid in making their tasks less burdensome, but it will lend consistency and uniformity to the athletic program.

The Patrick Henry Board Of Education has approved a student athlete random drug testing policy. Student athletes in grades 9-12 will be tested randomly during the athletic seasons in which they participate. Contained in the policy is a consent form. The consent form must be signed by the student athlete and a parent/guardian in order for the student to participate in the sport season. Please view the policy, a quick FYI document and the consent form with the links below.
The Ohio High School Athletic Association has mandated that all student-athletes and their parents/guardians be provided several important pieces of information before their first regular season contest of the school year (2015-2016). This information can be found in a short, 16-minute video provided by the OHSAA. Student-athletes and at least one parent/guardian are expected to watch this informative video and sign the student/parent sign-off form that can be found in the "parent forms" section located on the left-hand column of the athletics webpage. There are two ways to view this mandatory preseason video. You can view it through YouTube or you can request a DVD from the athletic director to view.
