BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS: At tournaments, I do not strictly supervise the students.  The kids who do forensics are almost uniformly good kids, and during the past nine years I have not seen any behavior that warranted punitive action.  At tournaments, any student caught with drugs or alcohol, or who is engaged in any dangerous or illegal behavior, will be removed from the team and his/her behavior will be reported to both parents and school officials. At State, parents would be called and immediate pick up from Madison would be expected. No bullying or other harassment is tolerated. Co-curricular expectations are enforced. Medical forms need to be on file.
Feel free to contact us at any time:; 868.2598 ext. 278;
Please sign this to acknowledge you know the requirements for your student to participate in Forensics.
