In teaching our new group of level 3's, I'm reminding them to keep the leg straight, lift the arm from the shoulder, and cut (rather than climb) - however, it was brought to my attention that there may be a deduction for allowing the back of the leg to hit the bar after the cut - is that correct?

So, we would want them to cut fwd w/ lift, leg rests when shifting grips for mill circle, and then lift again for mill circle?
 
In the book I have it says 'leg/foot contacting bar on cut - up to 0.2'
then 'failure to show clear stride support at beginning and end of circle - each up to 0.2'

so I think you are right. cut forwards without front leg touching bar, drop and shift hands, definitely lift before mill circle.
