Any student in grades 7-12 participating in interscholastic athletics, dance line 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.
For more information on physical examination requirements, contact the nurse at your child’s school.
