New website for athletic clearance for middle and high school students

A message from the Department of Teaching and Learning

Dear families,

If your child participates in either middle school or high school athletics, please continue reading for an important change to our online registration/clearance forms for athletes.

Soon, you will be receiving an email from a company called FinalForms inviting you to complete and sign athletic forms for your students. We want to verify that Bellingham Public Schools has now partnered with this company, rather than using a form within Skyward as in the past. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-fills in information wherever possible, for each of your student-athletes, saving you time.

You may review your data at any time to verify it is current, and you will sign your forms once per year and after any updates you make.

When you receive the email from FinalForms, click on the personalized link to get started. This Parent Playbook will also help you with step-by-step directions. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support.”

If you have any questions about or need assistance with registering your athlete(s), please contact the activities/athletics secretary at your child’s school:
