School Absence Letter

US Figure Skating is implementing a new way for athletes and parents/guardians to request absence letters. You can request one at the link below.

You will be prompted to input all the needed information (athlete’s name, contact email, full event name, dates of absence, school information, etc). Once the form is submitted, you will automatically receive the absence letter in the form of a confirmation email. You will then forward that email to the proper school administrator.  Please double check for spelling and punctuation as any errors made will show up in the official letter if not corrected.

Photography & Videography

Melanie Heaney is the photographer and Pro-mix Sound & Video is the videographer for Skate Houston. Both will have sale tables setup in the awards room. We will forward any presale information once we receive it.
