Update on middle school athletics and FinalForms accounts

A Message from the Department of Teaching and Learning

Dear middle school families,

Here is a quick update on middle school athletics for 2020-21.

As conditions allow, middle school athletic seasons will begin in early 2021. Our schools will share more information when we are able to. We value athletics and activities, and know what an important role they play in many students’ lives. Please note: there will be no ASB fees to participate in athletics or activities this year.

Seventh and eighth grade families: If your student was in Bellingham Public Schools last year, you should already have a FinalForms account. Please take a few minutes to login and make sure all your information is up-to-date, including whether your student may need a new physical this year.

Sixth grade families: Soon, you will be receiving an email from FinalForms inviting you to set up an account to complete and sign athletic forms for your students. FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that families 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.  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 bottom of the FinalForms page and click “Use Support.”

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