Policies in place to provide safe and welcoming environment at district athletic and activities events

(09/30/2022) The goal of co-curricular activities in Anoka-Hennepin Schools is to provide a fun, safe and engaging opportunity for students and community members to support high school students and student-athletes as they perform in sports, fine arts, and other activities. 

The following guidelines are in place to ensure that all who attend a co-curricular activity experience a safe, welcoming and positive environment. 

It is important to remember that athletic events are governed by the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL), and that student conduct at school and district events is governed by the Anoka-Hennepin Schools Policy Handbook.

Students from the hosting and visiting schools must be prepared to show student identification at events, and middle school students and younger must be accompanied and supervised by an adult chaperone. Students from any other schools/non-participating schools must also be accompanied by an adult chaperone. 

Backpacks and outside food or drink (if concessions are sold on-site) are not allowed. 

Anoka-Hennepin prohibits the following at school events:

  • Weapons.
  • Alcoholic beverages.
  • E-cigarettes / vaping.
  • Tobacco products.
  • Controlled substances.

For more information, please visit Spectators who are unwilling or unable to follow the rules, regulations, or directions from event staff may be asked to leave the event.

Anoka-Hennepin realizes the importance of athletics and activities in the communities it serves and wants to ensure participants, fans, and community members experience a positive environment at each event.
