Spring Physicals & Recertifications Due Feb 28

Please be advised that physical recertifications are due for Spring sports for cheerleaders intending to tryout for the cheer team in April for next season.  The recert packet is HERE.

If you are healthy and have no problems since your Winter recert, no physical is needed. Complete everything on Recert Packet EXCEPT Section 8 and return to the HS office by 2/28.

If you had a problem since your last recert that requires a doctor’s clearance to return, you will need to complete the Recert Packet and have a doctor signoff on Section 8.

If you’re an incoming freshman (2018-19) or will be new to the team (or know someone who is), you will need to complete the Spring 2018 Sports Physical Packet (click HERE) and have a physical.

The school is offering physicals for $20 on 2/15-16 for those who need them.  The specifics from the CDSD website are below:

* ATTENTION ALL SPRING SPORTS ATHLETES: Sports physicals will be held at CD EAST HS on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 15 and on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2018 at CDHS, starting at 2:30PM in the main gym. Physicals are offered to students at the cost of $20.00. Cash or check is due with the physical. Please make checks payable to Central Dauphin School District. There is no charge for recertification physicals. The physical packet and recertification packet is available on line and can be printed from the CDSD website. All physicals completed by a medical examiner outside of the school for initial physicals must be dated after January 22, 2018 or dated after June 1, 2017 and accompanied by a recertification packet (including Cheerleading). All physicals must be turned into the CDHS main office or athletic training room no later than WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28 , 2018. Contact the Athletic Trainers if you have any questions.
