Preseason Meeting

As required by the NCHSAA all student athletes must have a parent or guardian present at a preseason meeting for each sports season.


Manteo High School and Dare County schools sets the policy for attendance requirements.


For the 2020-2021 school year MHS will be on a 4×4 traditional block schedule. This means that in order to be eligible for athletics students must pass a minimum of 3 classes in the fall semester to be eligible for the spring semester (starts in January).  If students only take 3 classes they must pass all 3.  Also students must be enrolled in a minimum of 2 classes at any given time to be eligible for athletics. 

Previous year requirement below

Manteo High School operates under a hybrid (2 block and 3 traditional) schedule. Students must pass the equivalent of five traditional classes to be eligible for the following school year. An athlete cannot fail more than 1 block course in a given semester to remain eligible for the spring semester.  Use seven traditional as the basis (block equals two); must pass equivalent of five traditional classes. Could fail one block only and be eligible (minimum requirement) but not more.

Manteo High School Policy*

Any student who misses more than five days for any reason in any semester class, or ten days in any year-long class has exceeded the Dare County attendance regulation requirements.  These students are subject to suspension of privileged activities (e.g., extra curricular activities, parking, attendance at prom, graduation ceremony, etc.) until such time as work is completed to the teacher’s and principal’s satisfaction.

Students must attend at least two-thirds of a class to be counted as present in that class.

An athlete becomes eligible or ineligible on the first day of the new semester.
