MANDATORY STUDENT PAPERWORK
If your child plans to participate this fall in middle school or high school sports, important paperwork must be completed and submitted on or before the first day of practice. Remember that students must complete 14 days of practice prior to competing in any contests.
Practice begins Monday, Aug. 9, for high school fall sports and activities, including football, girls golf, softball, band, and cheer.
Practice begins Monday, Aug. 16, for middle school fall sports and activities, including football, softball, band, and cheer.
Please check with your child’s school regarding practice details.
Before the first day of practice:
Physicals, proof of insurance, and Appendix A (concussion agreements, bus policy, citizenship card, and drug testing forms) are due on or before the first day of practice. Appendix A and the physical/insurance form can be found on the school website. Although MSHSAA only requires physicals every 2 years, PCR-I still requires a sports physical every year.
Putnam County R-I Schools Athletic Office and school offices have received many questions about these requirements. We hope that this clarification will assist you in completing your student’s required documentation. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call your child’s school or the Athletic Office at 660-947-3361 ext 343 or feel free to email the Athletic Director, Mr. Andrew Garber, firstname.lastname@example.org.
