IF YOUR STUDENT PLANS TO SEE THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN, YOU WILL NEED TO PRINT AND TAKE SECTION 6 & 7:PIAA FORM : ***Physical must be completed on or after June 1, 2021*** If your student is unable to see their Personal Physician, a CIPPE athletic physical can be obtained by an Excela Health Primary Care Office (1-800-332-4825 to make an appointment) or at MedExpress.
Please ensure that Mrs. Lisa Popovich, the High School Nurse, receives a copy of your completed SECTION 7: PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION (CIPPE) AND CERTIFICATION OF AUTHORIZED MEDICAL EXAMINER. This can be done by emailing a scanned or clear photo of the completed Section 7 form to email@example.com, or faxing to 724-259-6476.
BASELINE CONCUSSION TEST - IF YOUR ATHLETE HAD A BASELINE CONCUSSION TEST COMPLETED AND HAS NOT HAD AN INJURY, THEY DO NOT NEED TO HAVE ANOTHER ONE COMPLETED.
Baseline Concussion Tests must be completed with the PTHS Athletic Trainers prior to full clearance being received. If your student has a completed ImPACT test with their physician within the last 2 years, you may submit that as a baseline. If your student has already completed a Baseline Concussion Test, they do not need a new one unless they have had an injury (i.e. concussion) or are informed by the PTHS Medical Staff.
The athletic trainers have baseline concussion testing at the high school. If a particular day and/or time works best for you please let us know by emailing Lauren Germanowski firstname.lastname@example.org or call 724.744.0580 to schedule an appointment or to send her the ImPACT code. Please enter the high school at the athletic office and follow the signs to the athletic training room (161).
