Attending District Sponsored Events
Student Behavior at Campus Events
Our fall sports and events are underway, and we are excited to support all student organizations and show our Hurricane Pride! Since spectators were extremely limited last year, we wanted to provide a few reminders of FBISD and HHS behavior and sportsmanship expectations at all athletic, extra-curricular, and fine art events. FBISD & HHS Student Code of Conduct guidelines are enforced at all athletic, fine arts, and club/organization events. This includes riding on district transportation and attending off campus events.
The following behaviors at any extracurricular event could result in a person’s removal from the event and/or other consequences for HHS students determined by administration. Egregious misbehavior could also result in the student or spectator being banned from future events:
- Any violation of standards set by the FBISD Student Code of Conduct
- Rushing the court/field
- Heckling of the players and/or officials
- Verbal and/or physical aggression
- Any other behavior administration deems inappropriate
- Use of silly string
- Use of noise makers
- Throwing objects including water, confetti, baby powder, or any other objects is prohibited at any UIL sanctioned event
Your support is greatly appreciate to help inform our students of these expectations.
