As per state mandate, all 10th grade students are required to have a physical examination (blue state form) and evidence of adequate immunizations. A physical form, dated between the first day of 9th grade and the last day of the 10th grade will be accepted. Students who have not completed this requirement by the first day of 11th grade will not be permitted to attend school and will be sent home until the completed form is returned to the school nurse.
A completed Blue, CT State Health Assessment form is required each year for students participating in interscholastic athletics. Each physical is valid for the 13 months following the date of the physical. All completed physicals should be submitted directly to the school nurse - NOT the coach OR Athletic Director.
