In order to participate in athletics the state requires students to submit complete physical forms and permission (health/history) slips. The required forms may be accessed below. Form A is the health/history form. It should be completed by a parent/guardian. Form B is the physical form. It must be completed by a physician. All forms must be submitted to the school nurse complete. Incomplete forms will not be accepted. Any incomplete forms will be returned to you - at the expense of your child's athletic participation. This also applies to 9th grade and transfer students in regard to physical education eligibility. Computer printouts will be accepted only for immunization records. Should your physician question this, please refer to State Code 6A:16-2.2, specifically, h1-6.
The Pascack Valley Regional District rrequires all athletes (and parents/guardians) to sign a sportsmanship contract and a substance abuse and tobacco policy form. Athletes are not permitted to participate without signing and returning the contracts to the director of athletics. (This is the fourth form listed below.)
The NJSIAA has passed legislation requiring all student/athletes and their parents/guardians to sign a "steroid testing permission slip." The link for the permission slip is listed below as is the NJSIAA list of banned substances. Failure to sign the form will render the student athlete to be ineligible for competition.
