Dear Parents:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. As your assistant principal and athletic director, I am committed to making this upcoming school year a valuable and rewarding experience for each student at Shumate Middle School.

Again this year, the activity fee will remain at $100.00. It will be charged to each 6th, 7th and 8th grade student participating in any Shumate athletic activity. This is a ONE TIME charge for the entire school year, regardless of the number of sports or activities in which students are involved. Additional information will be provided at parent meetings.


1. Preferred method of payment is the electronic payment system that will be accessible on the district and school web pages as of July 5, 2016. The direct website to make a payment is www.payforit.net.

To set up an account you will need a valid email address, a credit card or check routing information and your child’s student identification number which may be found in your Parent Portal under Demographics. (Please note this number is different from your Parent Portal login.) Your card number will be stored securely so that you may make additional payments in the future without re-registering.


2. Submit check, money order or certified bank check to the school athletic and activity office. Include the student ID# on the check. Make checks payable to Gibraltar School District.

Cash payments will not be accepted.

Each student interested in participating in a school sponsored sport MUST have a current physical examination on file with the school. Parents should have the doctor use the form provided on the athletic website or from the athletic office. Please be sure that both sides of the form are completely filled out. Physicals performed on/or after April 15, 2016 are considered up-to-date and will be good for the entire 2016/17 school year. Students will not be allowed to tryout, practice, or play without an up-to-date physical.

New for the 2016/17 school year: 6th grade students WILL BE eligible for certain sports. These include cross country, swimming, wrestling and track. All of the above requirements must be met BEFORE trying out for these sports.

If you have any further questions, please contact me at 734-379-7606 or at richart@gibdist.net.
