SECTION II. TRAVEL
Elgin School District #23 will arrange transportation to and from all activities – athletic contests.
Each student – athlete will remain with the group – team and under the supervision of the advisor – coaching staff when attending away games.
All students – athletes will travel to and from activities – contests with the team and in school district provided transportation unless prior arrangements are made with the coach and building principal.
- For the safety and general welfare of all students – athletes, any student – athlete riding to an event must return on the bus. An exception to this rule is that coaches and/or advisors are allowed to release students to their parents or guardians following an activity. Another exception to this rule will be in the event that the parent/guardian completes and turns into the principal for approval, prior to the activity, a travel release form for their student – athlete. This would allow a student-athlete to ride home from an event with another adult (non-student). Advisors – coaches will have sign – out sheets with them at events.
- If a student – athlete does not return to the school bus by the time he/she has been instructed by the employee in charge of the activity trip, the bus driver will wait one half hour for the student. The advisor – coach will then contact the local police department in the town where the bus is waiting and the bus will proceed back to Elgin School District #23. The advisor – coach will contact the parent/guardian of the student – athlete and inform them of the action taken.
- Each student – athlete will obey all school bus regulations.
