In order to participate in extracurricular/co-curricular activities or athletic programs, students must adhere to Board policies, school based criteria, and applicable law. A student may not be eligible to participate in extracurricular/co-curricular activities for certain disciplinary offenses. It is important for students to understand that the behavioral expectations placed upon students by the school can extend beyond the classroom and school campus (i.e. social media), therefore, off-campus behavior may impact a student’s participation in extracurricular/co-curricular activities to the extent such conduct causes a substantial disruption to the operation of the school and/or activity.

Pursuant to Florida law, the Board has the authority to withhold participation privileges from students. In addition, schools reserve the right to remove any student for any offense of the Code of Conduct, which substantially disrupts the school or community.  Lake Nona High School will remove a student’s privilege to participate in any events, clubs, organizations, programs, teams, ceremonies, activities, etc. for the remainder of their enrollment at the school if they receive a Level 3 or 4 referral for any act in which they touch and/or physically harm another student.  

In addition, all other Level 3 and Level 4 referrals will be reviewed and a decision will be made if a student can participate in school related items (as stated above) for the remainder of their enrollment at LNHS.
