Attention All Fall Athletes

August 9, 2017 - You must have your health papers in to the school nurse by Thursday, August 10th, at 1 pm to be eligible for tryouts next week. The school nurse is not available next week, if you do not get your papers in by Thursday you may not be eligible for practice until the nurse returns the first day of school. The nurse must review all health forms and issue the blue card to the coach, giving health forms to the coach does not make a student athlete eligible for tryouts.


  • A current physical is required - If the 12-month period for the physical expires during a sports season, participants may complete the season as long as an interval health history was conducted prior to the season.  For example, a physical conducted August 1 would be valid through August 31 of the following year.  If a student plays beyond August (ex. Football), the student may complete that sport season as long as an interval health history was conducted before the start of the season. Immediately following the last sanctioned tournament competition for that season, a new physical is required if the student is going to play another sport.
  • Interval Health History OR Athletic Health History (for 1st time participants) must be completed (dated no earlier than 30 days prior to the start of the sport season) and presented to the school nurse with a current physical for a Blue Card.
  • Current physicals and health history forms can be mailed or faxed to the High School (fax # 753-4151).
  • The nurse will issue blue cards directly to coaches after all paper work has been received.
