Interscholastic Sports Physicals
The New York State Education Law requires that all students participating in interscholastic sports must have a physical examination. The West Islip School District is mandating student athletes to obtain their own sports physical from private physicians. All physicians who administer a physical are required to complete the form provided by the school district. Students are to return the completed form to the nurse’s office of their respective school upon completion of the physical. Sport sign-ups are conducted in physical education classes prior to the season.
1. Must use West Islip Public Schools Medical Examination Form.
**Form can be obtained from school building health office and District Office or downloaded here.
2. The physical will be at the expense of the parent.
3. Upon completion of the physical, return the completed form to the school nurse’s office of your respective school.
4. Student medical history (blue card) must be completed by parent/guardian and signed. Blue cards are issued when physical exams have been completed.
Sport physicals are valid for one year.
