Sports physicals and clearances
Recertification - Prior to the start of tryout sessions at the beginning of each season, a health history review for each athlete must be conducted unless the student received a full medical examination within 30 days of the start of the season.
Physicals are valid for one calendar year.
APP process - The Athletic Placement Process (APP), previously called selection classification process, is a program for evaluating students who want to participate in interscholastic sports at higher or lower levels. The school medical director will examine students and/or review clinical data for this purpose.
Concussion management - Health services works collaboratively with the athletic department to promote a commitment to implement strategies that reduce the risk of head injuries in the school setting and during district sponsored events. The concussion management team encourages all students with concussive injuries to seek treatment within 24 hours, have a detailed treatment plan within seven days and begin the "Return to Learn/Return to Play" process (if cleared to do so) within 14 days.
