|Sports Preparticipation Physicals|
If your child is in or about to enter the Middle School and is interested in trying out for any of the many sports offered during the school year, we are encouraging you to consider a physical examination by your own physician in keeping with the state's recommendations. Physicals may be done 365 days prior to the first practice session. We would encourage you, to have a physical done during summer vacation, or take this form to your child’s well visit. The required sports physical form is available on the Upper Township Middle School web page at http://www.upperschools.org. Go to the Middle School, then to the nurse office, Ms. Sackett’s web page, click on Forms, then click Sports Preparticipation Physical Form. Forms are also available in the main office. You can also get the forms by emailing me at email@example.com. I do check my email throughout the summer.
To assist you in the decision making process, we are providing a brief overview of the time frame for our offered sports;
Sept- Field Hockey, Soccer and Cross Country
Nov. - Girls and Boys Basketball
Jan. - Volleyball for eighth grade students
March - Baseball, Softball, Track and Golf.
If you are unable to provide a "home based physical" prior to the sport, we will continue to offer school-based sports physicals at the appropriate times during the school year, as indicated in the guidelines. Please contact Ms. Sackett to make arrangements before the date physicals are due. All physicals must be done on the approved school form and all forms must be complete. If you have any questions, please contact the middle school nurse at 628-3500 ext. 2247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your cooperation.
