Athletics and Activities: New Family Pass

A Message from the Department of Teaching and Learning

Dear Families,

We want to remind you that new this year you can purchase a $20 family pass to watch your high school athlete participating in basketball, wrestling, pep band, dance or cheer. This pass is possible thanks to generous funding from the Bellingham Public Schools Foundation, which is helping to support this initiative.

Families of elementary and middle school students already benefit from having the opportunity to watch their children participate in events for free. Because family engagement is a key strategy of The Bellingham Promise, we also want to find ways for high school families to attend events where their children are participating and not have cost be a barrier.

New this winter season, we are offering a $20 family pass for families that have a high school student athlete participating in either basketball, wrestling, pep band, dance or cheer. This means if a student is participating in wrestling, the student athlete’s family can purchase a Wrestling Participant Family Pass for $20 for admission to all home matches and away matches at Bellingham, Sehome or Squalicum High School. The pass allows entrance for two adults plus children. Note for pep band and dance, the pass is only valid on nights when those students are performing during the athletic event. Family passes can only be purchased from the ASB offices at Bellingham, Sehome or Squalicum high schools.

We will continue to offer punch cards for $40 to the public or staff. These cards will have 10 punches and can be presented to the ticket booth as admission to a game. One punch is equal to one admission. The cards can be purchased in the high school ASB offices or from ticket sellers at the games.

The regular cost of admission to athletic events is $6/adult and $3/student with an ASB card/senior citizen. Children not yet in school are free (5 years old or younger). The family pass and punch cards are only good for regular season home athletic events for Bellingham Public Schools. This does not include tournaments, invites, postseason events or other activities.
