For the 2014-15 school year, the district is collecting a $75 activity fee for all high school students participating in a Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) sport or activity. The purpose of the fee is to help offset the costs of these activities. Ladue's activities that participate in MSHSAA competitions are: all MSHSAA sports teams, speech and debate, scholar bowl, and MSHSAA sponsored instrumental & vocal events.
Students will be required to pay the fee before participating in a competition. Once the student has attended one game or activity as a participant, the fee will not be refunded if the student does not complete the season. A student is only responsible for one fee per year, regardless of how many sports or activities in which the student participates. There is a $150 cap per year for each family if there are multiple siblings participating in activities.
The fee will be waived upon request for students receiving free or reduced school meals. The fee will be collected through the High School Activities Office.
