If your child is entering the school as a freshman, transfer student, or intends to try out and compete for an interscholastic sport at any grade level he/she must have a current physical exam. A completed copy of the 2015 Health Form must be completed by a certified physician and returned to PMA no later than August 19, 2016.
According to Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association rules, in order for your student to try out for and compete in an interscholastic sport, he/she must have on file a current physical exam. A student who wishes to play in the fall must have a complete physical exam dated after October 19, 2015. A physical exam is valid for 13 months. If the exam was done before October 19, 2015 your child will no longer be eligible to compete when it expires.
Parents and students are required to complete the signed concussion training forms and a concussion history form. They are required every year, as are all medical forms.
Finally, a completed Parental Permission Form is also required.
All of the above material must be into the school nurse’s office prior to the first day of fall tryouts scheduled for August 25, 2016.
