Dear High School Parents and Student Athletes:
Greetings! I hope this finds you enjoying the summer months and trying to stay cool through the latest heatwave. The 2020-2021 school year was certainly unprecedented. We went from a stay-at-home order to State Championship games!
Let's make some new memories in 2021-2022 - #GoFalcons #FalconPride
Please take a few moments to review the enclosed materials.
1.) NEW PROCESS FOR ONLINE REGISTRATION & ONLINE FORMS:
We are moving our online registration and online forms from PowerSchool to our new Athletic Website. Across the top banner, hover over “REGISTRATION & FORMS”, then click on "Athletic Registration". This process does require you to input more information and is a bit more detailed - but the good news is that once you have created an account as a “New User”, the information you enter only needs to be updated if there are changes. It’s a three-step process:
1) Register as a New User to create the parent login and a family account
2) Acknowledge the email that will be sent to you immediately after creating a new account
3) Register your student(s)
- Enter emergency and medical information
- Upload the Student Physical & Athletic Exam Form (9th & 11th)
- Review Athletic Handbook and Communication Guide
- Select athletic activities
- ImPACT and Concussion Sign-off
- Just click the boxes and hit submit
This section includes your acknowledgement that you have read and understand the contents of both the Athletic Handbook and Parent Coach Communication Guide - and that you have reviewed both of these documents with your son/daughter. It is an expectation that students and parents be familiar with the contents of these two documents. Click the boxes.
There are Tutorial Videos and a Parent Tutorial available on the registration page, both may be of help to you. The videos depict another high school, but the process is the same!
Please contact Karin Kamm <firstname.lastname@example.org> for assistance with any issues, she is not in the office but will reply as soon as she is able.
