School Sport Information

All students who participate in interscholastic sports are required to have an
annual sports physical. This health assessment is the responsibility of the
student’s parent or guardian. The exam will include a hemoglobin, which
consists of a finger prick, a chronic disease assessment, a height, weight, and
blood pressure check. Screenings for hearing, vision, speech, gross dental,
and posture are also done. Postural screening is done to detect any
abnormalities in the curvature of the spine. Physicals must be done on an
annual basis. A two week grace period is given beyond the one year period, if
you are unable to make an appointment within the one year period. No
students will be allowed to participate in practices or games until a current
physical is on file meeting Connecticut state guidelines.
.
Please fill out the front of the Sports Physical Form (State of Connecticut Health Assessment Record) and the physician will complete the back. Please return the Sports Physical Formas soon as it is completed by your child’s physician to keep on file in
the Cumulative Health Record. If you have any concerns or questions, please
feel free to call me at (860) 824-5067.
