Tips for Sports Requalifications

In order to participate in sports, your daughter/son will need to meet with a nurse each sports season. This can be done on sports requalification dates that will be announced in advance. The following tips should assist you in making the process go smoothly for your child.

  • A physical exam of less than one year old needs to be on file in the Health Office.
  • A Health History Review / Sports Clearance Form needs to be filled out completely and signed by parent/guardian and student. It needs to be less than one month old and filled out in pen.
  • If your daughter/son wears glasses, please have them bring them on the day of the requalification.
  • If your child carries medication, please be sure that the Health Office has an MD order dated after June 30th (for the upcoming school year) and parent permission on file. Please have your child bring the medication to the requalification.
  • Proof of tetanus immunization within the past ten years is required.
  • If your daughter/son has been excused from gym/sports for any recent health issue, a note from a healthcare provider that states your child may fully participate in sports is required.
  • On the actual dates of sports requalifications, the nurse will be unavailable by phone and may not be able to return calls regarding sports requalifications that day.
  • As always, the Health Office will be staffed for daily needs. Please feel free to call the Health Office prior to those dates if you require information or assistance.
