Bear Families,

Below is a quick update from the NSAA regarding Athletic Physical for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to the current pandemic situation, any current student that had a sports physical this year will be able to use that physical for next school year. This is a one-year exemption, and does not apply to incoming freshmen.

“Health care providers in the state are experiencing changing demands to deal with COVID-19. These changes are causing them to postpone most, if not all, non-essential wellness and maintenance visits. Most of them are planning changes to last until July.”

“The NSAA SMAC unanimously recommended to the NSAA board that Pre-Participation Physical Examinations (PPE) for the 2019-2020 school year be acceptable for the 2020-2021 seasons. This recommendation would be for a one-year exemption only and would not include incoming freshmen. They continue to recommend that students visit their primary care providers for the PPE.”
