        Dear Parent/ Guardian,

        The Athletic Department at Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District now hosts their High School Pre-Participation Athletic Forms online with PlanetHS . This digital platform will allow you, and your student(s), to complete and access athletic forms via computer, tablet, or mobile phone. It is HIPAA, COPPA and FERPA compliant. A link to the privacy policy is located at the bottom of the Sign in page at www.PlanetHS.com.

        Parent and student must create separate accounts, using different emails and/or mobile numbers.

        Important: Students must be sure to create accounts using accurate information, including their Official Name from school registration, DOB, high school graduation year and school.

        You can click SELF HELP on the right of the screen for walkthroughs of the account creation, account linking, and athletic forms functionality.

        Detailed printable instruction can also be downloaded here

        STEP 1.  Go to WWW.PLANETHS.COM and click on the Sign Up button in the top right of the screen. - OR - With a smartphone, follow the Quick Account Instructions at the end of this guide.

        • Note: if students are under 13, and they create an account, they must know their parent/guardian’s email address or mobile phone number. (COPPA COMPLIANCE)
          • Choose the type of account you wish to create.
          • Complete the requested information.
          • Be sure when choosing your school that you choose the school the student is participating at.

        STEP 2. Link the Parent account to the Student(s) account

        You will be led through this process after creating an account. If you do not link accounts at the time of account creation, you can always click the LINK ACCOUNT button at any time to complete or initiate the linking process. Parents can link to as many student accounts as they wish by repeating the linking invitation process.

        STEP 3. Complete Athletic Forms as Advised

        Students with accounts may begin completing digital forms immediately. Parents must be linked to a student account to see the electronic version of the forms. If they are not linked, they will only see example PDF versions of the forms. You can complete forms or see their status at any time by clicking on the ATHLETIC FORMS button.

        For additional help please refer to the one-page help-guide below, access the complete online forms tips located in the light green bar at the top of the Athletic Forms page in your account or use the light blue self help button located on the right-hand side of your screen.

        Athletes cannot participate in sports until digital forms are complete and approved unless otherwise specified by your school. Forms will be valid for the entire school year for which they are filled out, with the exception of the physical exam provided by your physician which will reflect the policy set in place by your athletic department. Completing and having your Pre-Participation Registration Forms accepted by your school does NOT guarantee you have made the team.

        If you need assistance with PlanetHS or need more information, please email schoolsupport@arbiterathlete.com. If you have questions regarding the content of form requirements, please contact your school Athletic Director.
