Athletics Dismissal Policy

  • Greetings Huskies,

    Sports and clubs are a vital part of the high school experience for students. Every TSM student has the opportunity to participate in sports with Mumford High School’s teams while the Husky gymnasium and athletic facilities are being constructed. This athletic partnership presents unique challenges for students, parents, coaches, teachers, and administrators. Please familiarize yourself with the following TSM policies as it relates to athletic dismissal at The School at Marygrove:

    • For tryouts and practice
      • Athlete dismissal occurs at 3:50 – 03:55 PM depending on the arrival time of the bus
    • For away games
      • Athlete dismissal occurs when the bus arrives at TSM in person.
    • For home games
      • Student athletes, coaches, and parents are responsible for arranging transportation to and from home games. Student athletes must check in with the teachers of any classes they will miss and make arrangements to complete the assignments.
      • Student athletes who fail to check in with their teachers will be marked absent and may not receive an extension on any assignments/work assigned during class.

    If a coach is requesting a TSM student - athlete report to practice or be dismissed from class prior to 03:50 PM, or 1 hour prior to the start of an away game, it must be coordinated between the student-athlete, the athlete's parent, and the teacher. Parents may come and pick up their student-athlete for early dismissal in order to honor the coach's request. Student – athletes themselves are responsible for any and all class material they miss while participating in sports. It should not be the expectation of the student - athlete, coach, or parent that student- athletes who are dismissed or picked up early for games, outside of the explicit policy, be granted:

    • exceptions/extensions to assignments
    • special sessions to retake tests/give presentations

    If you have any questions regarding the TSM athlete dismissal policy, please contact me directly via email at Donald.Watts@Detroitk12.org.

    Sincerely,

    Dean Watts
