A current physical is dated after Feb. 1, 2018, and includes 4 completed pages. Any student without a current physical on file prior to Aug. 6 will not be allowed to attend practice/try-out until bringing the completed physical form to the Activities Office. This includes students who plan to participate in sports, marching band, cheerleading, dance, and color guard.
