Section 5: Activity Codes of Conduct

Mundelein High School has an outstanding history and tradition in a variety of activities and clubs. Our students and sponsors are hard working and continue to represent the community in a positive manner. Our activities programs provide students with many positive experiences. We are excited that you have chosen to take advantage of those opportunities.

We would also like to remind you that participating in any of our activity programs is a privilege and with this privilege goes tremendous responsibility. Your image will reflect the perception from people of what our activity, community, and school is all about. It is important that you use good judgment and display mature behavior at all times. You are in a leadership role and this can never be overemphasized. It does not matter whether you are a freshman or a senior, you must be a positive role model since you have the greatest impact on our programs, school and community.

As a part of the total educational program at Mundelein High School, every student has an equal opportunity to participate in our activities program. It is the aim of our activities department that all students who have met their educational requirements are given the opportunity to participate in the various activities offered by a very competent staff.

Mundelein High School is a member of the North Suburban Conference and the IHSA, (Illinois High School Association), and adheres to their policies and guidelines. We offer a very extensive activities program which competes and participates in a variety of student interests.

We welcome your participation in our activity program and extend to you our assistance and best wishes for a successful experience.

ACTIVITY CODE OF CONDUCT             

RULE 1- CONDUCT UNBECOMING AN PARTICIPANT

Participants will not display behavior during or outside the activity which, in the opinion of the sponsor, is considered insubordinate or inappropriate to standards of conduct, attitude or sportsmanship.

Punishment handled by the sponsor and Administration

RULE 2– TOBACCO/ALCOHOL/DRUGS IN ANY FORM

Participants will refrain from the use or possession of tobacco, alcohol, and the illegal use or possession of drugs, including steroids.

First Offense: Participant is out for one calendar year. This may be reduced to one month from the date of the infraction, if the participant goes through an “approved” substance abuse program, at the family’s expense.

Second Offense: Participant is removed from activities for one calendar year from the time of the offense. If the second infraction occurs during a suspension for a first infraction, the second suspension will not begin until the first suspension has been served in full.

Third Offense: The participant is no longer allowed to compete in activities at Mundelein H.S.

Because this is new, any current student who has an activity code violation will be placed at the first offense. Their next offense would result in a one year ban from activities.

SELF-ADMITTANCE

A participant or his/her parents may self-admit a substance abuse problem to the activity department and face no penalty. This is a one-time offer only and may not be used to avert a penalty that has been or will be discovered through “normal” occurrences, i.e. the police have already made an arrest.

Once the participant or his/her parents have come forward, the participant will have to complete an approved substance program at the family’s expense. During this time the participant is not under any activity code penalty and will be allowed to practice and compete as normal. Also, the activity department will treat this with great confidentiality.

While facing consequences for inappropriate behavior is a valuable lesson, the activity department is also very concerned with the development of all participants well beyond their high school years. The self-admittance program is designed to offer to the participants and their parents a tool with which to help foster good decision making throughout their life.

5.03   Music Department Code
Participation in any activity or club is a privilege and not a right.  Students who decide to participate shall be expected to exemplify the highest standards of sportsmanship, behavior and fair play.  Students who are unable to abide by the expectations established by Mundelein High School will be subject to disciplinary action. These expectations will be enforced year round from the time the student enrolls until the time they graduate.
Students and parents have the right to appeal a disciplinary action to the Activity Council.  The Council is comprised of the Assistant Principal, Principal or his designee and the Music Director.
