Spectator Code of Conduct Reminder

As you know, spectator conduct is a point of emphasis for our school and our league. The SWC and New Fairfield High School have high expectations for ALL fans at our events.

We want to be sure that all spectators understand the expectations, so that we can have an energetic, family-friendly, respectful atmosphere at our events.

Part of the spectator code is that our students are expected to follow the NFHS Conduct Code at events. That code prohibits "Obscene, Vulgar, Abusive, Inflammatory or Disrespectful Language, Gestures or Attire, Name-Calling, or Teasing" toward students and adults, which includes players, officials, peers, school staff, volunteers, and other fans.

Be sure that you and your students follow these expectations so all fans, players, officials and staff have a positive experience cheering on the Rebels!

Washington, D.C. Trip for Juniors Is Back!

We are excited that for the first time since 2019 that we will be bringing our Juniors to Washington, DC in the spring!

Students get to experience highlights such as a tour of the Capitol, Arlington National Cemetary, museums, and more with their classmates.

More information to come soon to your email, but here is what Class of 2024 families need to know now:

  • Trip will cost $475 total, first $75 deposit due October 31
  • Students must be academically eligible (not failing multiple classes)
  • Students must meet school behavioral expectations (no suspensions from time of paid deposit through the time of the trip)

Be on the lookout for more details from our trip advisors Mrs. Gephart and Mr. Garofola!
