MASSACHUSETTS POLICY REGARDING PHYSICAL EXAMS FOR SPORTS:
State regulations require the school to have a current physical on file for the entire season (current physicals need to be dated within 13 months of activity). In order for the physical to be valid for the ENTIRE Fall season it must be dated October 31, 2019 or later. If the physical is dated before that date it will expire during the Fall season. The athlete will become ineligible to play until a new physical is submitted. This is NON-NEGOTIABLE from the state. (Example physical is dated September 10, 2019 if no new physical is submitted the athlete will be UNABLE to practice or play in any game starting October 11, 2020). Physicians' Offices are issuing statements of physical approval in their patients are in good standing during these unprecedented times of office closure to routine visits.
The Fall season begins FRIDAY, August 21, 2020 for Football and MONDAY, August 24, 2020 for all other sports. If you do not have an up-to-date physical in our school files by the first day of tryouts, you will be ineligible to tryout. Please include date of physical and/or upload proof of physical form into Family ID. This remains in strictest confidence by all HIPPA laws regarding privacy
There is a MANDATORY Assembly for all Fall Athletes and their Parents on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 at 6:00pm in the SHS Auditorium. Team meetings with coaches will follow this mandatory presentation of school policies and procedures. (**May potentially be Pre-Recorded due to COVID-19 restrictions of assembly...yet TBD)
