Fall Sports Physicals
New York State law requires all athletes to have a current physical on file with the school nurse. All exam papers from your own doctor must be turned into the building nurse by the above due dates to ensure that you may participate on the first day. Physicals received after the due date will require 24-hour processing before participation may be authorized.
J-D Schools offered fall sports physicals in June. THERE WILL BE NO SPORTS PHYSICALS OFFERED IN AUGUST. Physical forms are available at jamesvilledewitt.org/athletics and will also be sent to each home in a separate mailing from your child’s school.
Notes from the school nurses
- It is necessary for any athlete who has an anaphylactic allergy, asthma or diabetes to have his/her life-saving medication (inhaler, Benadryl, Epi-pen, glucagon, and insulin) to have their medication with him/her on the first day of practice. He/she must also have the medical orders from his/her Medical Provider on file in the Health Office prior to the first day of practice. For safety reasons, no athlete will be allowed to participate without medication and orders on file. If he/she no longer needs medication, the school must have a written statement from a health care provider indicating that medication is no longer needed.
- If your student has a physical activity restriction in place at the end of the 2015-2016 school year, he/she will need to be cleared by the physician’s office who wrote the restriction prior to participation in any physical activity for the 2016-2017 school year.
