Late submission of Sports Physical Forms may result in delay or ineligibility to participate.

The student’s parent must also complete the district Medical Update forms for participation prior to each sport’s season in which the student wishes to participate. These forms are available at the school only. The students may obtain these forms in the cafeteria during lunches, at the nurse’s office and in the main office. The forms are color coded according to season: fall-green, winter-blue, spring-yellow.

If you have any questions regarding forms for sports or eligibility dates, please contact your school nurse prior to deadline dates.
