If you have a student who will be in grade 6 through 12 during the 2020-21 school year who wants to participate in a Middle School or High School sport, there are several Athletic Forms that will need to be completed. Here is the list:
Athletic Emergency Card 2020-21 (required)
Concussion Acknowledgment 2020-21 - Student Athletes (required by students)
Concussion Acknowledgment 2020-21 - Parents (required by parents)
Health History Update Questionnaire 2020-21
Use this form if: 1.) You are on an Alternate Year card and haven't had a physical since April 2019; 2.) Your physical paperwork is on file with the Amherst High School Office; and 3.) Your local primary care physician is unable to provide a NEW physical due to the Coronavirus pandemic. If all three of these conditions are met, AND you can answer NO to all of the questions on this form, then you DO NOT need a new physical for the 2020-21 school year.
Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation - History Form 2020-21 (online) OR
Physical Form 2020-21 (PDF version of all forms to take to doctor)
You have two choices here.
First, you can print the Physical Form 2020-21 (PDF version), fill it out by hand, and take it to your doctor for your physical exam so he/she can complete the paperwork. All paperwork will need to be scanned/emailed, faxed, or physically mailed to the HS Office (or given to your coach on the first day of practice as a last resort) before the student can practice or play.
The second option is to fill out the Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation - History Form 2020-21 online. You will receive an email (to the parent's email you provided on the form) with all of your answers, which you can take with you to your physical exam. The doctor will then fill out the Physical Examination Form and the Medical Eligibility Form (they have copies in their offices, so you don't have to print anything, although you might want to print the Physical Form 2020-21, just in case). The forms the doctor completed will need to be scanned/emailed, faxed, or physically mailed to the HS Office (or given to your coach on the first day of practice as a last resort) before the student can practice or play.
If you have any questions about this procedure, please contact Merry Dudley at the HS Office. The office is open Monday through Thursday, 9am to 3pm, beginning Monday, July 6. You can also call 715-824-5522.
