Stoneham offers the following sports for fall:
The user fee is $300.00 per sport per athlete with a $900.00 family cap. User fees are due at the beginning of the season. In case of financial hardship, waivers may be obtained through the Principal's office. Unfortunately due to many athletes trying out, some sports involve cutting. In this case the checks will be returned promptly. Checks are made payable to Stoneham High School. You will also be able to pay on line using electronic check or credit card. You can go to our website www.stonehamschools.org, on left side click onto Online Payment Center, then onto Athletic User Fee. If you choose to do this, make sure you print out your receipt to bring to our office to show payment has been made.

MDPH Education Materials on Substance Use Disorder (Opiate-use and misuse)
On March 14, 2016 Governor Charlie Baker signed landmark legislation into law to address the deadly opioid epidemic plaguing the Commonwealth. The bill is titled An Act relative to substance use, treatment, education and prevention. This new law includes multiple provisions including a 7-day limit on every opiate prescription for minors (with certain exceptions), a mandate for a verbal screen for substance use disorders in students and a requirement that information on opiate-use and misuse be disseminated to all students participating in an extracurricular athletic activity prior to their athletic season. This information can also be found at our SHS Athletic website, sports registration.
Here you will find information on substance use and misuse, where to get help for your child, resources and a link to the Dept. of Public Health Bureau of Substance Abuse Services http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/gov/departments/dph/programs/community-health/dvip/injury-prevention/substance-use-disorder.html
