• Participation in athletics is an opportunity for your child to get involved! Students are eligible to participate in interscholastic sports starting in 7th grade. Athletic physicals should be submitted to the school nurse by the deadline scheduled by the athletic department.

    Athletic Physical Forms are required for all participants. Physical forms are six pages. Parents/guardians complete the first 3 pages as well as the last page. The physician/ medical provider completes the last two pages. When picking up medical forms from your provider's office, please check the forms to make sure that they are complete. All areas must be completed, signed, dated and stamped. If there are items on the physical that are incomplete, it will be returned, which will result in a delay in processing. Physicals are valid for 365 days. If your child is not due to have a physical until after the deadline to submit forms, please call the nurse for assistance.  Once the physical forms are received and reviewed by the school nurse, they are then sent to the school physician for final approval. This process can take approximately one week after they have been submitted at school. Once they are approved by the school physician, the parent/ guardian will be notified. If you have any questions about the forms, please call the nurse. For additional information, please refer to the Scholastic Student- Athlete Safety Act.

    If your child has seizure disorder, asthma, or severe allergies, please complete a seizure action plan, asthma action plan or an allergy action plan as appropriate. If your child does not have these medical conditions, there is no need to submit these forms.

    Additionally, if your child has had the COVID-19 infection, the post- covid clearance form must be completed by their physician before they are able to return to sports. 

    PLEASE NOTE THAT STUDENT- ATHLETES MUST HAVE AN APPROVED ATHLETIC PHYSICAL ON FILE TO BE ELIGIBLE TO TRY OUT FOR ATHLETIC TEAMS.
