The Elementary School requires a physical/certification of health of all incoming students. There is no specific form required; any certification of health or physical form provided by a doctor's office or clinic is sufficient.
In order to participate in any inter-scholastic activities at the middle school or high school level, a student must show that they are healthy enough to compete and do not have any underlying physical issues that would endanger their health. To that end, the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) requires a Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Form to be completed each year by each participating student, their parent/guardian, and a qualified physician. Failure to complete the form and associated documents and turn it in to the school office will render the student ineligible to compete or participate in any way in school athletics.
