MEDICAL CLEARANCE FOR INTERSCHOLASTIC SPORTS
All students interested in participating in a fall interscholastic athletic program must receive medical clearance prior to tryouts. Before you make an appointment with any physician for an examination, you should speak with our school district nurse about regulations and guidelines that must be followed.
The schedule for our school nurse (Patty Smith, RN) for the summer of 2015 is as follows:
July 6 - 30: Candlewood Middle School (592-3301) from 8 am - 11:45 am Monday through Thursday (no Friday hours)
August 10 - 28: High School West (592-3201) from 7:45 am - 11 am
Only the Half Hollow Hills YELLOW Pre-Participation Form and Physical Examination Form will be used for medical clearance. All forms must be picked up from the nurse, completed then returned to the nurse. Other forms from private physicians will not be accepted. No faxed or attached physical forms will be accepted.
Do not return any medical clearance forms to the Athletic Office or the Pupil Personnel Office @ Central Office. Also be advised that no one at the building level other than the school nurse will assume responsibility for these forms. Return the forms only to the summer nurse during the hours listed above. They must be handed DIRECTLY to the summer nurse.
This year we will also have a district MD doing a limited number of free athletic physicals on August 12. If you interested, contact Nurse Patty Smith ASAP.
