2018 Pre- Season

Any student grades 7-12 who wishes to participate in a fall sport must have a PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION (CIPPE) form turned into Ryan Johnson, our Certified Athletic Trainer, prior to the start of the season. The physical form must be dated and signed by both the Physician and parents after June 1st 2018. The Forms are available online on the Schools website or can be picked up in either the High School or Middle School Offices.

I have included the Head coach’s phone number in this memo in the event you have any questions or concerns related to their respective sport.
