MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS WHO WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN INTERSCHOLASTIC SPORTS
The following list will help ensure all requirements are met in order for student participation in the sports program- including try-outs and to avoid delays in clearance.
All of the necessary forms are available in the school nurse's office and on the district website under Health Services and Sports.
1) Private Physician Sports Physical Examination. This BLUE form is the only one acceptable. It is 2 sided. The physician completes and signs one side, the parent/guardian completes the other. Leave no blanks.
***Final medical clearance is granted by the School Medical Director
2) Physical Exam by the School Physician. These exams are held for each sports season on a limited basis. Students must sign up for these exams in the Nurse's office. Announcements are made daily.
***Both of these exams are valid for 12 months. Even if it expires during the actual sport season, the student is cleared to play until the sport season finishes.
A white card will be given to the coach after completion of all the above. The student will then be cleared to play.
***Fall sports start in August at the High School level. If the exam is done before school ends or during the summer, get it in to the nurse's office (or the Medical Services office in the summer) and get a jump on the season.***
Please feel free to contact your school nurse or the Medical Services office if you have further questions.
