REMINDER: Late Submission Penalties

  •  Sport physical forms that are submitted after the due date will be subject to the following consequences:
    • Within the first school week of due date: 
      Athlete will NOT be allowed to participate in his/her sport for 1 DAY after he/she has been cleared to participate.

    • Within the second school week of due date:
      Athlete will NOT be allowed to participate in his/her sport for 2 DAYS after he/she has been cleared to participate.

    • Within the third school week of due date:
      Athlete will NOT be allowed to participate in his/her sport for 1 WEEK after he/she has been cleared to participate.

    • Within four or more school weeks of due date:
      Athlete will NOT be allowed to participate in his/her sport for 2 WEEKS after he/she has been cleared to participate.

    Please note:
    • In accordance with NJ State Law, the school physician has been contracted by our Board of Education to visit our school 3 times per pre-season.

    • The sole purpose for each of these visits is to review and sign off new sports physicals.  This does not include already existing valid sports physicals on file in the health office.

    • These 3 visits generally fall within the 4 week time frame of the stated due dates.  Therefore, if new physical forms are turned in later than the last contractual visit made by our school physician, it will be the athlete's responsibility to incur any additional costs should another visit by the school physician be required to clear those forms submitted after the deadline.
