Elk Rapids Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education encourages students to attend as many District-sponsored school events as possible, providing they do not interfere with school work and home activities. Enthusiastic spectators help to build school spirit and encourage those students who are participating in an event.

However, in order to ensure that students attending evening events as nonparticipants are properly safe-guarded, the Board requires that all elementary and pre-high school students be accompanied by a parent or adult chaperone when they arrive at the event and throughout its duration. Any unaccompanied student will not be allowed to attend the event, and the Board will not be responsible students who arrive without an adult chaperone.

The District will continue to provide adequate supervision for all students who are participants in District-sponsored events.
