11th grade parents are reminded that all Juniors need a physical exam. If your child had a physical that's under one year old, please have a physical form completed by your doctor based on that physical. If your child hasn't had a recent physical, please schedule an appointment. If a student returned a current sports physical, he/she does not need an additional 11th grade physical. Physical forms are available in the nurse's office and on the school website under "Athletics." The same form is used whether or not your child plays a sport. Please return completed forms as soon as possible and call the nurse with any questions.
