They may NOT participate in any games including scrimmages or be issued a uniform.Quarter 2 progress reports will NOT determine eligibility. The Semester 1 grades will be the next eligibility check. Athletes who become eligible at the semester will be able to play games as of January 7, 2021. Students who become ineligible at the Semester will no longer be able to play as of January 7, 2021.

LUHSD ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY POLICY
In order to tryout and participate in athletics, students must earn a 2.0 “C” grade point average on a 4.0 scale in all enrolled classes AND be on track for graduation. Students must be enrolled in and pass a minimum of 20 semester credits (4 classes). To be eligible for tryouts, students must maintain a 2.0 during the current tryout quarter and the quarter immediately previous (i.e.: two consecutive quarters). In addition, a student must be fully academically eligible in grading period prior to the probationary period in order to participate. See the Athletic Director in advance for specific information about making up grades during summer school. Academic eligibility resets on the date of determination set by the district. Incoming freshman must maintain a in their last semester at middle school to be eligible. Ask your athletic director for list of these dates. The NCS does not recognize grade changes after the date of determination. If an error is discovered, there is an appeal process to NCS. If the student meets all necessary prerequisites for probation, one academic probation period may be authorized once in an academic school year in high school by the Superintendent or designee for students to participate in athletics whose GPA is between 1.75 and 1.99.Spring Sports 2021: Tryouts next to sportSemester 1 grades will determine tryout eligibilityBoys Basketball March 15Girls Basketball March 15Boys Soccer February 15Girls Soccer February 15Baseball March 15Softball March 15STUNT cheer March 15Boys Tennis March 8Girls Tennis March 8Boys Golf March 15Girls Golf March 15Swim March 8Dive March 8Track March 15Wrestling March 8thDates of Determination:Quarter 3 Monday April 5, 2021Semester 2 June 14, 2021Fall Sports Workouts have began.
