Physicals & EKG Information

Students participating in McKinney ISD athletics are REQUIRED to have a yearly physical prior to tryouts, practices and games.  Physicals must be on or after April 1, 2018 to participate in athletics for the 2018-2019 school year.  Students are expected to get a physical on their own if they are unable to attend the physical provided by MISD.

All physicals MUST be completed on the official MISD Physical Form that is TAN in color.  Forms will be passed out to athletes on TODAY and will also be available in the front office.

In the past we have offered EKG's for student athletes on the same day as physicals.  We are still offering EKG's along with Echocardiograms, but the set-up will be different this year.  There will only be ONE DAY these are offered at McKinney Boyd High School.  Parents must schedule these in advance.
