All students planning to participate in middle or high school sports are required to have proof of a current physical exam on file in the school nurses office. Sports physicals are considered valid for one calendar year. Scheduling your student’s physical exam in summer or fall would cover their participation in any school sport for that entire school year. Students may schedule a physical with their own physician and provide documentation to the school, or they can take advantage of the pre-season sports physicals conducted here in school before the start of the fall sports season. Practitioners from Kittery Family Practice/York Hospital conduct our school physicals. The cost is $5.00, paid in cash on the day of the physical.
For the 2018-2019 school year, we will be conducting
school sports physicals on the following days:
SPORTS PHYSICALS at TRAIP ACADEMY will take place on TUESDAY, AUGUST 14TH FROM 8AM-10:30AM. This is during the first week of fall high school sports practices. High school coaches will provide student athletes with the Pre-Participation Sports Exam forms which MUST be completed, signed by a parent/guardian and brought in with the $5.00 fee on the day of the physical. This form is also available on the school nurse and school athletic websites.
SPORTS PHYSICALS at SHAPLEIGH SCHOOL will take place on TUESDAY, SEPT. 11TH FROM 7:45AM-11AM. Our middle school sports physicals are offered during the first weeks of the school year, the time when many students first decide to participate in school sponsored sports. This is a very hectic time for students and families, so be on the lookout for the Pre-Participation Sports Exam forms which will be mailed home in August with other school information. These forms MUST be completed, signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the school nurse before the Sept. 11th school physical date, in order for the student’s physical to be done. The form will also be available on the school nurse and school athletic websites.
