Students entering grades 9-12 who plan to participate in a fall sport/activity must have a current, complete physical on file with the High School Activities Office before Aug. 6 (the first day of fall sports practices/try-outs). A current physical is dated after Feb. 1, 2018, and includes 4 completed pages. Any student who does not have a completed, 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.

July Physical Night
If your student still needs a physical for participation in 2018-2019 activities, a second physical night has been scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 26, at Ray-Pec High School. The cost is $15. Because this is the first time to offer a summer physical night, you are asked to RSVP if you plan to attend. This will allow organizers to schedule the appropriate number of volunteers and health care professionals to conduct the physicals. Sign up here.
Middle School physicals
Middle School fall sports practices start Aug. 13. You may bring completed sports physicals for 7th and 8th grade students to registration on July 25 or July 31.
