New York State Education Law Article 19 and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education require that students in grades 7-12 have a sports physical if they are going to play an extracurricular sport. Community Memorial Hospital is coming to our school to perform sports physicals in April and May.
If you have a child in grades 6-11 and they are interested in a sport for next year, please have them sign up for a physical exam. This will be the only time physicals are done this year. The physicals are FREE.
If these physicals are completed now, it will carry your child through every sports season next year and they will not need to have another sports physical until near the end of the school year next year. We will NOT be doing physicals over the summer or in the fall.
I strongly urge all students in grades 6-11 to have a physical now if they think they may play a sport next year. Please sign the attached form and return it to the nurse by APRIL 21, 2023.
