    PLEASE NOTE: THE SPORTS PHYSICAL CLEARANCE PROCESS HAS CHANGED EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2024.  Please read all the information below carefully.

    THE New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) HAS CHANGED THE SPORTS PHYSICAL SUBMISSION PROCESS. THE SPORTS PHYSICAL EXAMINATION FORM NO LONGER NEEDS TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE STUDENT’S SCHOOL DISTRICT.  A MEDICAL ELIGIBILITY FORM will still be required. The Medical Eligibility Form should be in the ORIGINAL form. Please do NOT EMAIL. The Medical Eligibility Form for FALL sports is due to the nurse's office by August 12, 2024.

    New Jersey State Law requires that all students that plan to participate in the after school Athletic Program in Middle School and High School have a physical exam. **THIS EXAM IS TO BE KEPT BY THE STUDENT’S HEALTHCARE PROVIDER WHO COMPLETES THE PREPARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION.  

    • Preparticipation Physical Exams are valid for 365 days. The physical must be current on the day of the first practice to be considered valid. Please be aware that physical exams are recorded based on the date of exam, not the date the form was completed by the physician.
    • Sports Physical Exams must be recorded on the New Jersey Department of Education Annual Athletic Pre-Participation Evaluation Form.  THIS FORM IS TO BE KEPT ON FILE BY THE STUDENT’S HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. 
    • THE MEDICAL ELIGIBILITY FORM MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE HEALTHCARE PROVIDER, AND SUBMITTED TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.  THIS IS THE ONLY FORM THAT IS REQUIRED TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE NURSE’S OFFICE
