Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. How do I know if my child has a current physical on file in the health office? You should keep track of your child’s annual physical date on your calendar and submit the 5 page preparticipation form once a year immediately after the physical has been completed. Forms are processed all year long. If you are not sure if your child has a current physical on file you can email the office and inquire. Send the email to the nurse that covers the grade your child is in. Our email addresses can be found on the health office webpage.

 

2. My child had a sports physical over the summer but it’s on a camp form. Is that okay? No. All physicals must be submitted on the NJ Department of Education Annual Athletic Pre Participation Form. This is a NJ state law and no exceptions can be made.

 

3. If my child had a physical last year how long is it considered current for? Physicals are current for 365 days. Please note all physicals are considered current from the date of the exam not the date the paperwork is signed by the MD. Simply add 1 year to the date of the physical to get the date of expiration. Only physicals that are current on the first day of practice or tryouts are acceptable.

 

4. What is a health history update form and how do I know if my child needs to hand one in? The health history update form is a snapshot of your child’s health since the last physical. Health history update forms are required for each season of sports throughout the year. If your child will be participating in 3 seasons of school sports then a separate update form will be required for each season.

 

5. Does the health history update form need a doctor’s signature? The form has 9 questions. As long as all of the answers are NO the update form does not require an MD signature. If your child has had an injury or illness since the last physical then the form will need to be signed by your child’s doctor.

 

6. Who should the forms be given to? All physical forms and update forms should only be given to the nurse in the health office. Instruct your child not to give the forms to your their homeroom teacher, physical education teacher or coach.

 

7. What happens to the physical after I drop it off? NJ state law mandates that each sport physical must be approved by the school doctor in addition to the MD that performed the physical. Once here, your child’s physical is carefully reviewed for anything that may raise a red flag for the school doctor and that could result in a rejection. Please make sure all questions are answered either yes, no or don’t know. All yes answers must be fully explained and dates must be included. The Health History Form must have a parent signature and date. The Pre-participation Physical Examination Form must be filled in entirely by your child’s MD including height, weight, blood pressure and vision. The physical must be signed, dated and stamped by your MD. Once prereviewed here, your child’s physical will be taken to the school doctor for review and approval. This process can take several weeks. A cleared list is generated from the physicals received back from the doctor that have been approved.

 

8. Why is the deadline to turn in forms so important? The process to approve a physical takes several weeks because the school MD must review each one. The school doctor guarantees review of every physical prior to the start of the season that is submitted by the deadline. Physicals received after the deadline are not guaranteed to be reviewed prior to the start of the season.

 

9. How do I know if all of my child’s forms have been handed in? Because of the high volume of sports physicals we receive each season it is impossible for us to contact each parent to verify receipt of their child’s forms. It is best to have your child hand deliver the forms. Please confirm with your child that they came to the health office to drop off their forms. You may call the nurse's office to confirm receipt if you need to.
