During the SUMMER - All physicals (from private physicians) and/or update forms MUST be received in the ATHLETIC OFFICE
Winter & Spring Seasons - Physicals and updated are to be turned into the school nurse.
(see below for office location / business hours)
In accordance with New York State Education law, any student participating on an organized athletic team must have an annual physical to participate. Physicals are good for a period of one year from the date of the physical, to the end of that month (i.e physical done 8/15/2017 is valid until 8/31/2018 with a completed update form). If the physical is more than 30 days prior to the start of the season, a health update must be completed by the parent/guardian (the update must be dated within 30 days of the start of the season). Students must have a physical and/or update in order to participate.
Although the West Seneca School District is committed to the belief that all children need an annual exam by their own physician, the district offers sport physicals by the district physicians.
The following options are available if your son or daughter wants to participate on an athletic team:
1. Obtain a physical at the school - MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
(by District Provider - Forestream Pediatrics).
Physicals are offered by the Athletic Department during the summer ONLY.
2. Your child may get a sport physical by their private physician. The physical MUST be completed on the Health Appraisal physical form. If the physical is dated more than 30 days prior to the start of the season a Health Update form must also be completed. Forms are available at the school nurse's office, Athletic office (Potters Rd, Room 107). Health Appraisal form can be downloaded from the website.
3. You may call Health Works (712-0670) or 5 Star Urgent Care (650-5516) to schedule a physical appointment at your convenience and cost. Our physical form should be used.
If you choose to have the physical done by your private physician or HealthWorks, the completed physical form MUST be delivered prior to the start of practice to the school nurse (during the school year) or Athletic office (during the summer).
