Fall Sports Info

The Interval Health History or Athletic Health History forms should be sent in starting July 21st. Please do not send in earlier than the 21st, they can only be accepted 30 days before the start of practices.

Forms can be dropped off at the main office, mailed, faxed, or e-mailed to the School Nurse. Please send them in by August 11th so Mrs. Barton may process the Blue Cards to give to the coaches before the start of practice. Also remember a current physical (within the last year) is also needed for sports participation.


  • 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 # 659-3900).
  • The nurse will issue blue cards directly to coaches after all paper work has been received.
