Any student in grades 7-12 participating in interscholastic athletics, danceline, or cheerleading must have a current physical examination on file. This physical must be done within the past three years and may be performed by a physician, nurse practitioner or a physician's assistant.
If you have a child who intends to participate in these activities in the coming school year and does not have a current physical on file at their school, contact their health care provider to schedule a physical examination.
After major surgery or serious illness or injury, a physician must certify in writing the student's readiness for participation in interscholastic athletics, danceline or cheerleading.
Every Three Years:
High School and Middle School Students Must:
Completed physical examination forms are kept in the school athletic office or nurse's office depending on the individual school.
For more information on physical examination requirements, contact the nurse at your child's school.
