Having discussed with the diocese at length, we have been given a few concessions in regards to physicals for this year. The originally announced required physicals to be completed on June 1st for all activities has been graciously changed to preferred. However, we must get the attached form (Diocesan Summer Athletics and Camps Program Medical Information) from every camper. If they don’t get their physicals on the first day, we at least have this information. This will give us permission to seek medical care if needed.

Hence, we are still offering the physicals to anyone who would like to come up on May 31st from 12-4 pm in the arena (cost: $25). We will have several Baylor doctors here to complete the physicals. We encourage you to take advantage of this alternative. 

There will also be a second opportunity on June  27th & 28th  in the nurse’s office for anyone else who has not received their physical. The expected time frame for these dates is 4 pm to 7 pm. More information to follow as we finalize the details about this offering.  
 
Beginning Summer of 2017,  all camp participants will be required to have a physical before participation.  
In summary, currently a new physical is preferred on the start date of your camp/conditioning.  If a family cannot get that done,  we can let them participate with the attached form completed and a physical to come as soon as possible.  Every participant must complete the new form with or without a physical (this will be with the coaches/trainer).
 
Due Dates for Physicals:
- Conditioning/sports/summer camps/cheer on the first day of camp or asap (summer camp form required also for summer);
- Band Camp first day of camp or asap (summer camp form required also for summer);
- Norsemen physical due June 22;
- Royelles- before camp or June 22 (whichever is first);
- Athletic classes next school year  (fitness, PE, Fit 4 Life, dance)  must have physical completed and turned in by June 22;
- For choir fundraiser, once camps start.

New and 9th grade students must turn in a completed physical by June 22nd or they will not be allowed to be in school or participate.

Please return these forms to Nurse Nancy as soon as possible for the 2016-2017 school year:

Guidelines for Keeping Our Students Healthy

Illnesses like the flu (influenza) and colds are caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs.  The flu and colds usually spread from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  To stop the spread of germs, you must cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, wash hands with soap and water often, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, and stay home when you are sick.  See a doctor when needed.   Students with Temperature of 100° or above must stay home until they are fever free without medication (Tylenol or Ibuprofen) for 24 hours.
