Every student deserves a private physician who can provide continuity of care, and most physicians recommend that you schedule exams around your child's birthday. In the event that a physical with a private physician cannot be arranged, the District will ensure that the child receives a physical. If you wish to have the district conduct your child's physical, please complete the Health Appraisal Informed Consent form below.

Sports Appraisal

Children participating in sports programs must have a current physical on record in the health office. Exams are considered valid for twelve months, good through the last day of the month in which the exam was conducted, and are good through an entire season, even if the exam runs out during that season.

Sports Recertifications

All school athletes are required to have a sports recertification prior to the beginning of each sports season. The recertification consists of an interim health history and parent permission for participation in the sport. A student may not participate in any practice or game without first receiving this recertification from one of the school nurses.
