Only our school physician has the authority to review and medically clear athletes to participate in sports. What this means is that if you do not have your COMPLETED paperwork submitted by the due date on the ATHLETICS webpage, you run the real risk of not being able to participate in tryouts on the first day of the season. Please see the athletic web page for the first day of the practice schedule.
The school doctor will be reviewing each and every individual student's paperwork who intends on going out for a Spring sport. You will not be able to hand your paperwork into the nurse's office and practice that afternoon. It could be a week or more before you are cleared, depending on when the school doctor is scheduled to come to review these documents.
