Spring sport physicals must be submitted to the school nurse no later than February 1, 2019
Athletes with an inhaler or Epipen must also submit an updated doctor's order for the 2018-2019 school year and bring the medication to school. Student must have their inhaler and/or Epipen with them at all tryouts, practices and games. 

PLEASE READ: Sport physicals must be reviewed and approved by the school physician prior to students participating in any tryouts, practices and games. The clearance process can take up to two (2) weeks from the date the physical is turned in to the nurse's office. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD AND TURN IN YOUR PHYSICAL PAPERWORK BY THE DUE DATE TO ENSURE YOU ARE CLEARED FOR THE START OF THE SEASON

Incomplete physicals will not be accepted. Please review paperwork before submitting it to the nurse. Incomplete physicals will be returned, delaying the student's participation in sports.

Important - As per NJ state law, all new physicals must also have the doctor's signature and date verifying that they have completed the Cardiac Assessment Professional Development Module. Any physical not having this signature will be invalid and not accepted.

PHYSICALS -  Sport physicals are good for 365 days and must be current on the first day of tryouts or practice. Physicals must be submitted on the state approved forms and filled out completely or the nurse will return the packet to the student.
If your physical is up-to-date, a Health History Update Questionnaire must be filled out by a parent and submitted to the nurse. This must be done at the start of each season. 

 A link to the physical paperwork can be found under the Quick Links tab at the top of the page.
