Be on time to events
It is very important that students be on time to the events in which they are scheduled to participate. For example, if there is a rotation between tasks or stations and the rotation has started by the time a student team arrives, the team may not be able to complete all tasks or stations. There may be important safety or general instructions that are given at the beginning of the event—if a student misses those instructions, the Event Supervisor cannot be satisfied that the event will be safe.
If a student arrives late, and the event has not started, the student should not complain if they are barred from the event. It may look like it has not started, but important orientation and safety instructions may have already taken place.
Long experience shows that Event Supervisors want every student to be successful and have the chance to participate. The decision of the Event Supervisor with respect to late arriving students is final.
