We have had a very exciting athletic campaign so far at Uxbridge, and, with the onset of the spring season hopefully ahead of us, we are writing to announce the opening of spring registration.
As with the fall and winter sports, we require student-athletes and their families to register using FamilyID. The instructions for registration for those of you who have not registered before are included with this message. For those who have registered for a winter or fall sport, the process is simple, in that you choose your participant and update with the requested spring sport. If any physical examinations have expired within the last 13 months, or will expire this spring, we remind families to upload a copy of the physical examination or provide a copy to the school nurse before a student-athlete is permitted to participate.
We are opening the FamilyID portal for the spring on March 1, and registration will remain open until March 17, which will allow our nurse to approve all physical examinations and our administration to doublecheck academic eligibility before the start of practice. Any student-athlete who does not register before March 17 will have his/her approval delayed beyond the first day of practice, and the athlete will not be permitted to participate until we re-open the portal and approve all requisite documentation.
Additionally, if a student-athlete has been previously registered and medical information has changed (i.e. new injuries, concussion, diagnoses, etc.), please make sure the portal is accurate. There are other helpful links on the FamilyID site, including the required concussion course, our school athletic schedules, and school websites, as well as contact information, should you need it.
The site can be accessed through clicking on this link: FamilyID. You can also paste the following into the address bar of your browser: https://www.familyid.com/organizations/uxbridge-public-schools.
For fee payment, we are offering the opportunity to pay using City Hall Systems, the same payment system utilized by the town. Please note that the fee payment website will not have the option to pay athletic fees until March 1.
In the following pages, we have explicit instructions for both Athletic Registration and Online Payment. We tried to make them very detail oriented so that folks would be able to follow them easily. Should you need customer support, Family ID’s contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org (email) and 1-888-800-5583 (phone).
The sites are both very user-friendly, and we know these processes streamline registration, physical examination eligibility, and user fee payment. We appreciate your attention to our deadlines, and feel free to reach out with any questions!

FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides you with an easy, user-friendly way to register for our programs, and helps us to be more administratively efficient and environmentally responsible. When you register through FamilyID, the system keeps track of your information in your FamilyID profile. You enter your information only once for each family member for multiple uses and multiple programs.
BEFORE YOU REGISTER:
All prospective student-athletes and their parents should make sure that they read the Student-Parent Handbook, the Online Concussion Course, and have an up-to-date physical examination. Physical examinations are valid for 13 months, meaning a student who had his/her last physical examination documented on September 1, 2016 would be considered to have a valid physical on file until October 1, 2017.
The physical examination form completed by the physician may be provided to the school in one of several ways:
- Bring the hard copy to the high school office, to the attention of the nurse.
- Take a picture or scan of the physical examination form (filled out by the physician) and upload as part of the registration process.
- Have the physician’s office fax or mail the form to the high school office. (This is the least preferable way).
INFORMATION NEEDED TO REGISTER:
It will be helpful to have the following information handy to allow for accurate completion of your online registration.
Most Recent Physical Examination
Health Insurance Information
Contact information for emergency contacts

Our preferred method will be for families to pay online, using the City Hall Systems website. This allows money to be automatically debited, eliminates the exchange of paper, and allows both the school district, town, and family to track the debit of the user fee. Should a student decide in the preseason not to participate, refunds are more easily processed. Note: CityHall Systems charges a .50 convenience charge for inputting a check, and there is a 3.25% service charge if a debit or credit card is used.
Families can also bring a check to the athletic director or coach. Please note that district procedure requires checks and cash to be handed over weekly, or when the depositor is in possession of $500, whichever comes first, but there are several steps between the receipt of the check and its final debit from the student-athlete/parent's bank account, including logging the student’s check against the roster, the deposit at the bank, and the turnover at Town Hall. Processing an electronic payment eliminates all intermediary steps.
This system will be available by mid-August. The instructions outlined below are those provided by the site for ease of use, but, as with any first-time experience, we anticipate some glitches. Your patience as we work through those and ready the system for full use is appreciated.

- Type in or click on the link for City Hall Systems: https://epay.cityhallsystems.com/
- Click on Sign up (in the left column under “My Account”).
- Complete the fields as requested.
- Then click on the “Sign up” button.
- A confirmation page will appear indicating that your registration has been accepted and that an email has been sent to you. The email will contain a link you must click on to activate your account.
- The last step to activating your account is to open the email you received from us and click on the link contained in the email. That will bring you to the City Hall Systems ePayment site. This will complete the process for creating an account.
