Webster Central School District offers sports physicals for students grades six through 12 who are interested in playing sports in the 2018-19 school year but who cannot schedule a physical with their own health care provider.
The district will host sports physicals from 5 to 7 p.m. on June 12-13 in the Webster Schroeder health office, 875 Ridge Road. Check in no later than 6:45 p.m. A parent/guardian must accompany students. No sports physicals will be given at the schools during the summer. Students who miss the district sports physical dates will have to schedule a physical with their own health care provider. All students, including current sixth-graders, who want to play school sports next year, must have a current physical on file in the health office. Those have a current physical by their own health care provider do not need a separate sports physical by the district: physicals dated on or after Aug. 1, 2017, will qualify for fall sports; physicals dated on or after Nov. 1, 2017,will qualify for winter sports; physicals dated on or after March 1, 2018, will qualify for spring sports.
The district physician does not prescribe medication or clear activity restrictions. Those who require rapid-acting rescue medication — EpiPen, inhaler, glucagon, etc. —must have current independent carry and use medication orders written by a health care provider to participate in sports. Medication orders must be renewed every school year. Submit current physicals, activity clearances and medication orders for next school year prior to the last day of classes or with a fall sports registration at FamilyID.com. Documents may be uploaded to the secure site; or email, fax or mail documents to the school nurse. Student athletes must sign up annually for every sport. Sports registrations are electronic through FamilyID. There are no paper sign-up forms.
