PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN

Important Forms

All Forms, Physicals, and Fees must be turned in before participants can begin practice

  • Forms are located above on this webpage or in the high school front office
  • Physicals are good for 3 years - Contact Ryan Eppen (reppen@chatfieldschools.com) if you aren't sure if your student-athlete needs a physical.
  • Activity fee = $150 per sport with a family cap of $500. If a family qualifies for the free or reduced lunch, they would also qualify for free or reduced activity fees. Fees must be paid BEFORE student can begin.

Down/off list 

This is how the activities dept. and the coaches monitor the academic progress of student athletes. The school has a policy that assures a student activities participant is making progress in the classroom in order to be eligible to participate. Each week, teachers in 7-12 get a list of activity participants during that season. If a participant is not making adequate progress (failing) in a class they are marked on this list. The list is given to the activities dept. Coaches and parents are notified by email at this time. The first time an individual is on the list, they are considered down. There is a one week period in which the individual has to get their work up to standards for that class. During the week, the student can still practice and play in games. If after this week the student has improved, then they will no longer be on the list. However, if they are put on the list for two consecutive weeks in the same subject they would be put on the off list. While on the off list, students are not able to practice or participate in games. This could continue longer than a week if progress is not made. Keep talking to your student about keeping their grades up. Parents can monitor grades on the school website by using JMC.  If you do not know your password, contact Julie Keefe at jkeefe@chatfieldschools.com

Bus Procedures 

We would like everyone to ride the bus to and from the events when a bus is provided. If your child does need to ride home with you, a note signed by you must be given to the coach. If someone other than the parent is providing a ride for your child, then this must be PRE-APPROVED by the Principal or the Activities Director.

Athletic Trainer         

Chad Eickhoff, Mayo Sports Med, is at the high school on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to see athletes who have a sports related injury and have been referred by their coach, doctor, or by parent request.  To schedule an appointment, email Julie Keefe in the high school office at jkeefe@chatfieldschools.com or Ryan Eppen in the Activities Office at reppen@chatfieldschools.com
