EAST RIDGE HIGH SCHOOL: VARSITY LETTER POLICY
SoWashCo Schools and East Ridge High School value student accomplishments. Students will be recognized in our community for outstanding effort, positive contributions, and exemplary achievement.
Students at East Ridge have the opportunity to earn a varsity letter in academics, arts, and athletics.
Earning a letter is a significant accomplishment. East Ridge High School reserves the right for head coaches and advisors to determine specific lettering policies for their activity. Coaches and advisors will develop and communicate baseline expectations that incorporate, but are not limited to, the following components: academics, behavior, participation, and citizenship/community service.
Athletics, arts, and activities programs can award varsity letters if they are sanctioned and recognized competitions by the MSHSL, Suburban East Conference, or similar governing body with regulatory, governing control over the competition of individuals or teams representing East Ridge (i.e., MN High School Bowling League, Math League, Clay Target League, FIRST).
The staff advisor of any other East Ridge activity that wishes to award varsity letters may request a review by the Activities Director. Key components to be considered:
- Is it a competitive activity sanctioned by a governing body?
- Do the teams or individuals represent East Ridge HS when they compete? Do they wear a East Ridge uniform? Do they compete against other high school teams?
- Does the activity have a school staff member as coach/advisor?
