As a reminder….sports physicals to be used for the 2020-21 school year must be taken after May 1, 2020.

JCHS/USD 475 will release online registration information for athletic programs for the 20-21 school year in the upcoming weeks.

We would recommend planning on scheduling sports physicals with your physicians/approved healthcare providers in the upcoming summer months.

We will also keep families posted of physical opportunities as the new school year approaches.

The KSHSAA pre-participation physical exam form has been updated based on the most recent edition of the PPE: Pre-participation Physical Evaluation, 5th Edition publication.  The updated edition was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and other supporting organizations.

Medical Eligibility Page:  This is the biggest change to be aware of regarding the new form.  This is a new page at the end of the PPE paperwork that requires a second signature from the healthcare provider AND the parent/guardian.  This page contains the student-athlete clearance, and parental consent for participation and emergency treatment.  For a PPE to be valid when submitted to the school, healthcare providers are now required to sign two different places on the form (page 3 and page 4).

Signature Requirements:

Healthcare providers must provide 2 signatures.  Page 3 (physical exam page) and page 4 (medical eligibility page) both require the provider’s signature.

Parents/guardians must provide 3 signatures.  Page 2 (health history page), page 4 (medical eligibility page) and page 5 (eligibility checklist).

A cover/instruction page is included with the PPE form outlining the requirements for each entity involved with this process.  The current KSHSAA PPE form can always be found on the KSHSAA website at the above address.
