Wildcats and Prospective Wildcats… It Is Time For 2024 Sports Preliminaries & Physicals
February 9, 2024 (View/Download a copy of this letter here.)

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In the coming weeks, we will begin conducting “preliminaries” for Sports Physicals for the 2024-2025 school year for those students who wish to receive a sports physical completed by the school physician.

If your child will see their private physician to obtain a physical for the upcoming sports seasons and you do not wish to have one performed by the school physician, no further action is required.

Preliminaries are performed by the school nurses and are completed BEFORE the formal physical examination.

Preliminaries include the following:

  1. Blood pressure
  2. Pulse
  3. Height/Weight

The next step in the process is the Sports Physical. The exams will occur in March, April, May, and June. Physicals are conducted in the nurse’s office by the school physician during the school day.

Please use the following link to sign your child up for a sports physical to be completed at school.

Sports Physical Sign-Up

Questions about preliminaries and required medical paperwork to participate in sports? Contact to your student’s building nurse during regular school hours.

  • Middle School Nurse’s Office: 845-987-3100 ext 16700
  • High School Nurse’s Office: 845-987-3050 ext 12700

Sincerely,

The WVCSD Health Department
