Basketball Protocols 

Updated: January 2021

The Lucky 7 Conference and the Quapaw Board of Education have approved guidelines and protocols for student and spectator safety during the 2020-21 basketball season.  Our number one goal is to have our students compete and play basketball this season.  With this goal, all of us have to do our part to make this happen in the safest possible environment.  We want to give our basketball teams and cheerleaders the season they deserve.  Here are the protocols and guidelines for basketball in Quapaw and throughout the Lucky 7 schools:

There will be capacity limits in all gymnasiums.

Pre-Passes will be distributed to attend all MS/HS Basketball Games.

Masks will be mandatory in all indoor facilities. 
(Gymnasiums/Lobby/Snack Bar Area/Rest Rooms).

Following CDC guidelines, masks will be required (masks should not be worn by children younger than 2 years old, anyone who has trouble breathing, anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance) for indoor activities where social distancing is not possible. Persons not complying with this requirement will be treated as an unruly fan and will be removed from the facility.

No outside food or drinks will be allowed in the facilities.

No one will be allowed on the court except players, coaches, officials, cheerleaders, game workers, and administration.

There will be no fundraising activities on the basketball court.

These guidelines will include youth basketball, MS basketball and HS basketball.
As stated above, our number one goal is to provide the safest possible environment for our student athletes.  It’s a sacrifice we must make to allow our kids the opportunity they deserve this season.  We appreciate your understanding and your continued support for the Quapaw Public Schools.

Adopted by Board of Education


All team members and managers traveling under the supervision of the coach and/or sponsor are to go and return from out of town games/activities by transportation supplied by the school. Players (students) shall not drive to any activity they are participating in.


Students involved in supporting the team in an organized group will travel under the supervision of the sponsor when transported in school vehicles.


Regardless of how students travel to a game, their actions and conduct are the business of the school and proper discipline will be taken when conduct is improper. It is not the intention of the school to restrict the freedom or privileges of students, but the school feels a duty for the safety of its students and the reputation of the school.


Students riding the bus to an activity are expected to return on the bus, except when personally requested by the parent or legal guardian to return with them and sign the sign out sheet provided by the coach or sponsor. If the student is to ride home with anyone else such as grandparent or any other responsible adult, the parent or legal guardian must submit to the principal a written request prior to the activity and that person must sign the sign out sheet provided by the coach or sponsor.  The principal will notify the coach or sponsor of the approval.


For school activities, the participating students must ride school-arranged transportation only. If a student participates in the activity, he/she must travel to and from the activity with the group. Release from this will be only to parents or legal guardian and only with prior approval of sponsor and/or the principal. 

The Quapaw Booster Club meets monthly in the HS Cafeteria. Please come and be a part of Wildcat Pride!
