Lake Local School District Activity Fee
The Lake Local Board of Education (BOE) has instituted a one-time activity fee that will be charged for participation effective for the 2017-2018 school year for high school and middle school athletics. This packet provides information and clarification. The purpose of this fee is to offset the expenses the BOE incurs while providing comprehensive athletic programs.
1. All fees must be paid in full by the FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE.
2. The activity fee DOES NOT guarantee any student playing time.
3. Questions should be directed to the coach and or athletic department.
The following fees will be charged for athletics ONCE per year:
Middle School Sports: $75
High School Sports: $125
Athletes playing a second or third season will not be charged for those seasons.
There is a three athlete maximum per household.
IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN THREE FEES TO PAY PLEASE REGISTER YOUR OLDEST THREE CHILDREN HERE AND CONTACT THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT SO THEY CAN ADD YOUR OTHER CHILDREN TO THE ROSTER.
IF A STUDENT IS CUT:
If a student has to be cut from the team, a full refund will be made back to the card you use to pay the fee.
IF A STUDENT IS INJURED:
If a student becomes injured and is unable to participate for the remainder of the athletic season, 75% of the activity fee will be refunded. This will only be permitted through the first 20% of the season. NO REFUNDS will be granted after the first 20% of the activity. A doctor’s excuse will be required prior to a refund being granted. Once a refund is granted, there will be no admittance back to the team.
