    • Only one absence per student allowed on the STARBASE trip. If a student is absent twice, (s)he may not return to STARBASE. Suspended students are not allowed to participate.
    • For any negative action which is severe or creates risk to other students, the STARBASE staff maintains the right to immediately remove a student from an activity and not invite the student back to STARBASE without proceeding through the Code of Conduct.
    • No candy, gum, or food allowed during class time.

    Students must have their required papers on file and completed to participate in the academy. No student will be allowed to remain on site without required forms.

    ALL ADULTS must have a valid current picture ID to be allowed on base. This includes adults riding on the school bus with students.
