In the near future we are going to begin using online permission slips for sports events instead of the paper copy that is sent home with students or emailed to parents.
The new system will involve Google forms (the same as the students are now using for athletics entries) and will be sent via email to the necessary people. The form will include information about the sporting event and the caregiver will write their name and tick a box to confirm permission as well as any other information required.
This will eliminate the paper trail and permission slips left in the bottom of bags. In addition we are looking to switch the payment of all sports activities to being charged to caregivers accounts instead of cash being brought to the school with students.
More information regarding this will be sent out soon but if you have any questions or comments to make about these intended changes feel free to contact me.
