Our mission is to prepare students to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
Pre-participation Athletic Physical Exam
All athletes in grades 7-12 must have completed an athletic physical exam before they may begin participation in practices for cheer & dance, cross country, football, or volleyball. A physical exam is valid for one year of participation. Plan ahead and schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider. HS practices begin August 7, 2017. JH practices usually begin the first day of school.
There is a health history portion of the form that must be completed and a portion that must be completed by a medical professional. In addition, there must be signatures from the medical professional and from a parent or guardian. Please note, the parent/guardian signature is frequently missed and a student may not practice until that is completed.
Below is a link to the form required by both the Iowa Girls HS Athletic Union and the Iowa HS Athletic Association. Some medical professionals have forms available at their offices, but keep in mind that there are parts that must be completed by a knowledgeable family member and your health professional may wish for you to complete this before the appointment.
