Registration: Registration is now open through ParentVue. You may register online by clicking on fee pay, and then activities. You will need to fill out the eligibility form online and electronically sign it (parent and athlete need to sign). You will then be asked to pay the $150 activity fee. If your family is on the reduced or free lunch plan, your fee is lower. The system should tell you how much you have to pay according to your lunch account. If you think there is an error with the fee, please contact Activities David Holler at 763-497-2655 extension 5. Make sure your son has a valid physical on file with the activities office or the system will not allow you to register.
Behavior: As an athlete for Middle School East, you are an ambassador of our school. As an ambassador of our school, we expect your behavior to be that of a positive model for others to see and follow.
Important Policies to remember:
- You need to be passing all of your classes to be on the basketball team. Mr. Holler will check to see if you are passing all of your classes at mid tri.
- You need to be in class five full periods of the day in order to practice or play in a game that night. If you have a doctor’s appointment, you may be excused from this requirement, but you need to make sure to bring a note to Ms. Anderson, our attendance person, from the doctor explaining that the appointment took longer than usual.
- Your coaches will expect you to be at practice every day. Practices are after school Monday through Thursday until 5:00. Missed practices may result in reduced playing time.
- We will bus you to all road games and back to East, but you may ride home with your parents after a game rather than ride the bus back to East. You need to have your parent sign out with your coach if you ride home with a parent. If you are planning to ride home with someone else’s parents, your parents need to notify Mr. Holler of this one day in advance.
