Grants Pass High School requires you to register your student on Family ID. Family ID is a program our district has implemented to use for all sports and most activities.

Family ID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through Family ID, the system keeps track of your information in your Family ID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs.

Families are now able to process their Band Fee on Family ID. You can choose to pay the $50.00 deposit or pay the entire 2021-2022 Band Fee of $250.00. If your student has a carry-over credit, would like to make a partial payment, or would like to pay by cash/check, please see the G.P.H.S. bookkeeper at the front office.

If you already have a Family ID account:

All of your information from the previous registration is saved to your profile. You and your student need to re-read and re-sign the Medical Consent Form and the GPHS and/or OSAA Code of Conduct for every season, including summer activities, with your electronic signature.

Registration Process for people new to Family ID:

It will be helpful to have the following information handy to allow for accurate completion of your online registration:

Doctor Information | Health Insurance Information | Emergency Contact Information
