    IMPORTANT PARENT INFORMATION 

    Prior to the beginning of the athletic season, it is important to know what you and your athlete should expect as the season begins.  Please take time to review the parent meeting power point (bottom-left tab on SMS athletics homepage) with your athlete.  Once you have reviewed the presentation, please email Brandon.Keeling@husd.org with any questions or clarifications.  Additionally, once your son or daughter has been extended a position on their respective team, the cost for participation is $100 per sport payable to HUSD #60.  This fee is non-refundable.  Please note, uniforms will not be issued until payment has been received in full.
