Important Info About Sports Physicals for 2017-18

     Published on 4/24/17   Tagged under:    District News    Athletics   

All students participating in interscholastic athletics must have a physical exam completed within a year of the beginning of the sports season in which they plan to play. A child’s physician is the best doctor to perform the physical as they are the most familiar with the child’s medical history and would be best able to judge his or her readiness for sports participation. 
 
Physicals conducted during the 2017 spring or summer months will cover this requirement for the entire 2017-18 school year. 
 
If you do not have health insurance or need a health care provider, please contact your school nurse as soon as possible. The nurse will assist you in getting a physical exam during May or June so that your child will be eligible to play sports during the 2017-2018 school year.
 
For further information, please contact your school nurse.
