They leave on Wednesday night. Get there Thursday afternoon and practice. Practice all day Friday. Compete Saturday and Sunday. Leave Monday night. Looks to me about three days excused, but two of them are practices. Plus, it's not like cheerleading is the only sport that's done it. When girls' basketball went to state, most of the student body went and they were all excused.
They are excused on this "vacation" until thursday. Do not have to be back to school until Thursday. Get your facts right before you blather.

HA, too bad my friend is a cheerleader. They leave the eighth and come back on Valentine's Day. Nice try though.

Any parent can get their child excused for 5 days for a valid reason.

You must not have a kid in school. Read the policy hand book and you will see its not true at all.

cheerleading is a sport so that does make them atletes. if baseball, basketball, football, and soccer are sports and they are athletes why arent cheerleaders? in all those sports they get a ball from one end to the other, what is so special about that? cheerleaders do very difficult stunts while cheering people on. it may not mean much to some but im sure it means a lot to others. gymnastics is a harder sport and cheerleaders are gymnasts.

@Scrooge You're right!!!! The cheerleaders around Martin run around like they are they most important people in the world! They get special treatment from teachers, principals, and others! Just a few days ago cheerleaders around me were making fun of a new kid that moved here because they(the cheerleaders) were wearing Hollister, Aeropostale, North Face, Abercrombie and Fitch, Ralph Lauren, etc. while he(the new kid) was wearing a pear of Wal-Mart jeans, polo, shoes, and belt! Clothes are clothes!! Expensive or not expensive! If you have the money to go to Jackson, Memphis, or Paducah every weekend then be my guest!! Waste your money on a stupid status symbol! I do wear these name brand clothes but I got them for Christmas. They personally say they go to malls every weekend. I know I'm getting off topic, but. These cheerleaders might be going to Disneyworld in a few weeks, but its just so they can come home to tell everyone else stuff that others don't care about!

Cheering is not a sport; it is an activity just like band.
Please do not cunfuse doing a backflip with making a 10 yard run in FB or going the length of the floor on a driving layup or making a diving stop at short and then getting to knees to throw the runner out.
SHEESH!!

haha, for "cheer", in reality for you(you do know reality do you not?), while i participated in 2 sports in school I also served as the school's mascot during FB season so I really do have some first-hand knowledge of cheering. I knew all the gossip and the other students loved me sharing with them; of course they had to talk to me while I was dressed in the mascot uniform so my identity would still be a secret...even the cheer squad did not know my identity-only myself and the cheer sponsor. Those 2 years were the hoot.

just because you played in 2 sports does not mean you know what it takes physically to be a competition cheerleader. until you have done it you dont know what it takes.

Cheer, as for the time I spent wearing the mascot uniform, I was in attendance at all practices. If cheerers cheered to inspire better play AND the crowds, I might have a more positive outlook for them. The best girl in the school becomes an instant b**ch when elected to a cheer squad.

at all practices ? when was this as noone is allowed into practices except cheerleaders and coaches. and they only become an instant b*#@h to those who are jealous. my daughter cheers and has many many friends. if you dont like them thats fine but why down them and act like its nothing to do what they do when you have never been in their shoes?
