Important Information for Parents Regarding Athletic Forms, Injuries, and Insurance
- Athletes are required to submit an annual physical examination and complete the athletic packet online. The forms included in the athletic packet are the concussion acknowledgement form, the student’s emergency information and athletic release, the NJSIAA steroid form, the sudden cardiac death in young athletes brochure, the supplemental health history form, the transportation permission slip, the athletic fee, and the parent-student handbook.
- Students will not be allowed to practice until proof of a physical within 365 days prior to the first official starting day of that particular sport season and the online athletic packet has been completed and the confirmation slip has been received by the athletic trainer.
- All injuries must be reported to the coach, athletic trainer, and school nurse.
- If an athlete visits with a physician for an injury, the athlete must provide medical documentation for the athletic trainer and the school nurse; this documentation shall include the diagnosis, limitations and or recommendations, and when the athlete can return to play. A referral form which can be found below can be given to the physician to fill out to satisfy all requirements.
- An athlete will not be cleared to return to activity until medical documentation has been received.
- All intramural after school activities/sports require a valid physical on file in the nurse’s office within 365 days prior to the first official starting day of intramurals.

A concussion clearance form is required to be filled out and returned to the athletic trainer before the athlete can begin the return to play protocol.
