The Lake Local School District has implemented a pay to participate program designed to reduce costs to the general fund for operating co-curricular & extra-curricular activities. Parents & students are advised that payment of fees does not automatically insure playing/participation time.
Activity fees are generally collected at the start of each season on an advertised date. These dates are listed under the section labeled, "Activities & Meetings." If full payment of fees are not paid on the posted date, then the athlete has (1) week to make payment or they are suspended from the team until such payment is made. “NSF” Checks are considered unpaid fees.
If a household qualifies for the National School Lunch and Breakfast program, then their activity fee may also be reduced or free. This free or reduced program does not apply to registration fees for elementary athletic programs, summer programs, camps, or team wear purchases required by coaches.
Households who may qualify for free/reduced fees for student activities must complete The National School Lunch and Breakfast Program Application each & every school year and a form giving consent to release the eligibility determination information for determination of participation fees. This paperwork will have to be completed and time allowed for determination of benefits before determination of fees. These forms will be available after July 1st, each school year from the high school office during office hours or from the Food Service Office. Please pick up and complete your application early, so there are no delays. Any questions concerning the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program Applications or to pick up forms please call Chris Wilson at 419 661-6652.or email at email@example.com
Any athlete who is ineligible and a member of a team, must still pay activity fees. Activity fees are non-refundable if an athlete quits a team, is dismissed from a team or becomes ineligible after fees are paid. However, any athlete who sustains a season ending injury prior to first contest would receive a full refund. A physician’s note may be required.
Checks are made payable to: Lake Local Schools
