Pay-to-Participate: We Welcome Your Donations

Once again to offset the athletic program costs, the district will be charging a "pay to participate" fee to all athletes.

High school student athletes will be charged $60 per sport and middle school student athletes will need to pay $30 per sport. Athletes must pay their fee no later than one day prior to the first game/event (not the day of) in which the athlete is eligible and does not guarantee playing time.

Please make your checks payable to the Wahkiakum School District for both MS and HS student athletes.

Low income students who request assistance, may tap the "donation pool" for 50% of their fee, as long as there are monies available in that pool.

Donations are welcome and should be delivered to the District Office with a check payable to the Wahkiakum School District. If desired, your donations can be earmarked to assist a specific extracurricular program, otherwise they will go to a general fund for Pay to Participate. If you want to make a 100% donation for a particular athlete for a particular sport, we will honor your request.

If you have any questions about making a donation, please contact the School District office at 360-795-3971, or either school building.

Middle School Sports Eligibility Policies

Students at the middle school level that participate in sports have their grades checked every Friday. If a student is failing a class or classes the student will be notified on Friday. They may work on assignments over the weekend and turn in their work before school on Monday to see if they can become eligible. At times there is no make-up work to be turned in (ex. PE) so it is a good idea to keep your grades passing at all times. Please be aware that at the beginning of the quarter when only a few assignments are in the grade book one missing assignment or poor score can really affect the overall grade.

It is the athlete's responsibility to make up the work and return it to the teacher before school on Monday. If they are passing after the work is graded they get to participate that week, if they are not passing they practice with the team but do not travel to away contests or participate in any contests. If a student is not eligible for three weeks, they will no longer be a part of the team.

WSD Extra-Curricular Athletic Programs

For each sports season, Middle School athletes must be sure they have submitted all the paperwork listed below and met all the eligibility requirements before the first practice in order to participate in a sport during that season.

If you have any questions, please contact our Athletic Director, Rob Garrett.

Checklist of Items Required for All Sports

Student Accident and Health Insurance

All student athletes are required to have health insurance coverage.

For those who do not have medical insurance, Wahkiakum School District makes available to parents a relatively low-cost Student Accident and Sickness Coverage for their children. Families without student athletes are also allowed to purchase this coverage, if they are so inclined. There is however, no requirement on the District's part for student non-athletes to have this coverage.

Forms are available through our student registration process, as well as in both school offices. Feel free to contact your student's school office for more information and/or to pick up the form describing the Student Accident and Health Insurance.
