• Welcome to Palmer Junior Middle School Athletics 
     
     
    The Athletic Department at Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District now hosts their 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.


    Follow the steps below to complete pre-participation registration:


    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.

    *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)

    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.
     
    Why do I have to link accounts​?
     
    Forms required by your school district, often require both a parent and student signature to mark the form as completed. For the system to know which student and parent will be viewing and signing the proper forms, a linked parent/student account is required.


    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 Cheryl Nichols (907)761-4300. 


    STEP 4: 
    SELECT THE SPORTS AND/OR ACTIVITIES YOU WILL PARTICIPATE IN

    In the ​Sports/Activities of Interest ​section, check the sports and or activities you will be trying out for. By checking these sports and or activities, you are allowing the coach or activity adviser to view your pre-participation paperwork.


    Accepted Forms Notification

    When your school has accepted all forms, a notification will be sent to you stating all forms have been accepted. You will be notified via email and/or text message (if you have selected the text message option during account creation), if a form has been denied by your school. You will be sent a notification, in which you will be given the reason for denial and a link to review and resubmit your changes back to the school.


    Pay Activity Fee
     
    The activity fee set by the School Board is $100 per activity with a $250 per student cap. Payment may be made with a card at SchoolCash online or in the front office.
