Updated Grass Lake School Gym Rules


1)    With the exception of water, absolutely no food or drinks are allowed inside the gymnasium.  Please eat/drink in the concessions hallway only.


2)    During rain or winter, organizations are required to wipe off their feet before walking on the gym floor.  Water on the gym floor could cause the wood to warp.  Additionally, if water is spilled or brought onto the gym floor, please wipe or mop up the water.


3)    Hard baseballs or similar hardened sports equipment are not allowed.  Baseballs (and similar balls) will cause divots into the wood.


4)    To avoid wear on the center circle, all activities requiring a center-court face-off must be done outside of the center circle.


5)    Cleats are not allowed on the gym floor.  If participating in athletic activities, proper gym shoes are required.



I have read the additional rules and understand our group is responsible to the Board of Education and Grass Lake School for use and care of the Grass Lake School property.
