The Clearance Process

                                *Students must go to the health office for paperwork/forms for every sport they want

                                  to try out for.

                                *Students must have a current physical.   Physicals are good for 1 year

                                   from the date of the exam.

*Physicals done by your own health provider must be completed in their entirety or       

  the clearance process will be delayed.

*Students with chronic medical conditions MUST provide annual clearances from

   their primary health care provider.  

                                *Physicals are available in the Health Office on a first come first served basis.

                              * For each sport the student would like to participate in, a parent/guardian must

  complete, sign and date a new Parent Health History form.  These are available in the      

  health office and on the Longwood Central Schools website.  These forms cannot be                 

  completed sooner than 30 days before the start of the sport.              

                             *Clearances are processed on a first come, first served basis.  If paperwork is handed in

                                  late to the health office, the clearance may not be completed in time for the student to    

                                  try out.

                                *Once the clearance is completed, it is given directly to the coach.  The student will be

                                  advised that they are cleared and may attend tryouts at that time.

                                *Coaches require a permission slip completed by a parent.  These can be picked up

                               in the gym or health office by the student.


*Every school year a new doctor’s prescription is required for all medication.  

Prescriptions must state medication can be carried/self administered.  All   medications must be reviewed by the building nurse before any clearances can be issued.                        



                                *If the student is injured at a practice or game and is seen by a health provider, please

send the medical notes with the student to health office when he/she returns to school.

                                *If the student is out of Physical Education for 5 days or more he/she is automatically

                                  disqualified from sports.  When the MD note states the student may return to play, the

                               health office will schedule a recertification with the Longwood nurse

                               practitioner.  Once this process is complete and the student is cleared to play, he/she

                               will be issued a new clearance to give to the coach.

Fall Sports

                               For all students trying out for a fall sport:

                                *Bring all paperwork (physicals, prescriptions, medication, doctor’s notes and health

                               history forms) to the JHS health office in August.  The JHS health office is open for 3

                               days during August (dates will be provided through a Connect Ed. Call) to conduct

                               physicals and process sports paperwork.  District nurses will be available to

                               review your paperwork and answers any questions you may have.  Parents can also

                               complete the required health history form at this time.  The clearance will be given to

                               the coaches for tryouts in September.  If for any reason the student is not cleared, you

                               will be able to address the issue before tryouts  begin.


JV and Varsity

                             For all athletes asked to play on a JV/Varsity team:

Please be advised that being asked to play up does not mean he/she will meet the State Guidelines to play at a higher level.  When the student has completed the process and passed all testing, a clearance will be issued by the JHS health office.
