Sports Physicals

Student must have a physical within 12 months of the beginning of the sport season he/she wishes to play. Students may visit the school nurse’s office to see if they have a valid physical on file.  If a physical is on file, students will become eligible for a sport once they return the health history form and emergency athletic form with a parents signature—provided all injuries have been cleared by a physician.

Physicals can be performed by a student’s family doctor, but the district’s physical examination form must be used.  The physical must be reviewed by the school nurse before a student can sign-up for a sport or attend practice. Students also have the option of having a sports physical performed by the school physician. The sports physical is in force for one calendar year; however, after 30 days a sport physical update form needs to be filled out by the parent and turned in to the nurse for each team you join each session.

Students who need a sports physical, a school physical (for new students, 7th and 10th graders) and/or a physical to obtain working papers, may make an appointment at the school nurses’ office. Physicals may take up to one hour so please plan your time accordingly. Also, please bring glasses or wear contacts for an eye exam, if necessary.

Please note: No appointment is necessary for summer physicals; exams are given on a first-come, first-served basis.

All athletes who are seen by a doctor must be released (signed statement) by that doctor in order to resume participation with their team. This release must be filed without school nurse.
