MEDICAL CLEARANCE FOR INTERSCHOLASTIC ATHLETICS
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 physical 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 2014 summer is as follows:
July 7 - July 31 - Candlewood Middle School (592-3301) - Monday - Thursday - 8 am - 11:45 am
August 11 - August 28 - High School West (592-3201) Monday - Friday - 7:45 am - 11:00 am
Only the Half Hollow Hills yellow Pre-Participation Form and Physical Examination Form will be acceptable for medical clearance; you can get them at the nurse's office. They are to be filled out and returned to nurse's office. No faxed or attached physical forms will be accepted.
Do not return any medical clearance forms to the Athletic Office of the Pupil Personnel 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 nurse.
We will also have a district MD doing a limited number of free athletic physicals on August 14. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please contact Nurse Patty Smith.
