Fall Sports Forms (2015-2016 SY)

(Guest post by Athletic Trainer Jeff Basilicato)

The following forms are necessary for clearance for the fall season and should be submitted to the main office.  The start date for this season is, 8/10/2015 while I know we are all still in summer mode at this point but that is when the fall season officially starts and paperwork must be up to date for that season.

All student athletes and parents need to complete 3 things in order to be cleared for the Fall

DEADLINE: Friday, July 31, 2015 2015

1) An updated physical:  Physical Form (Hard copy w/ Signature required) 
Physicals are valid for 365 days, so you may not need to obtain a brand new physical.  However, a physical dated 8/11/2014 or more recent must be on file with the school.  Please note that occasionally there are omissions or errors on physicals in order for a physical to be accepted it must be fully completed by 8/1.  We understand that most insurances will only cover one physical examination per year, therefore the only exception to the deadline will be if your child had a physical between 8/1/2014-8/10/2014.  However these must be submitted by 8/9/15 and still be fully completed with no errors in order for your son/daughter to participate in practices with no delays.
**Please review changes made by the NJSIAA related to Physical Forms and Cardiac Screening

2) Health history update: History Update/Questionnaire  (Hard copy w/ Signature required)
This is essentially the exact same form as for summer clearance.  But as the fall is a new season, the state requires it be filled out for each season.
3) Submit online Genesis Forms (2 separate Forms): Link to Genesis Parent Access 
  • WHS Athletic Forms/Extra-Curricular Activities  
  • Random Drug Testing 
There is a sign off sheet which is filled out electronically on the parent portal of Genesis.  This is to be filled out under the parent's account with your son/daughter as there are also items for the student to review.  Note: if you have multiple children at WHS, this must be done for each student individually.
Forms will be collected on Wednesday, July 22.   If possible I recommend submitting all forms by this date as it will allow time for them to be mailed back and resubmitted by the 7/31 deadline.  Forms will be collected multiple times the week leading up to 7/31.

I will be tweeting out an updated list as I have all summer documenting clearance status ( @bozwhs ).

If you have any questions about what you are missing please email me at basilicatoj@waldwickschools.org

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your summer!
