All Middle School sports will start on September 6th (the first day of school).

In order to participate in any of the Fall Sports, you must first receive clearance from the Middle School Nurses’ Office.  A physical examination is required.  If you have had a physical on or after September 1, 2016 and it is on file in your health records, you do not need another physical examination to participate in a fall sport.  If you need a physical, they will be given at the High School Nurses’ office on Thursday, August 10th and Tuesday, August 15th between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.  Physical examinations may also be conducted by your family physician, in which case you will need a school district medical examination form to be filled out by the physician and taken to the Middle School Nurses’ office for clearance.

Sports Updates must be done no sooner than thirty days before the opening day of each sport season.  Each athlete must appear in person at the Middle School Nurses’ Office for an update, which will be conducted from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30th and Thursday, August 31st, 2017.

Please note, if you have a history of asthma, food allergies or bee sting allergies, you will be required to have your medication.  In order to use medication in school or at sports functions, you need a physician’s order, written permission from a parent or guardian, and the medication in its original container with your name on it.  Please bring the necessary documentation and the medication with you when you come for your update.

The Parent Permission/Update form is downloadable along with the Authorization for Medication form and the Physical Examination form through the mw.k12.ny.us website.
