HMS now offers athletic events such as cross country, interscholastic basketball and track and field. It is now required that students who participate in athletics at HMS must follow the district athletic policy regarding physical exams.
In accordance with the district athletic policy, “all students who plan to participate in athletics must have written proof of a current physical exam signed by a physician.” The physical exams must be within 13 months of the athletic participation. Physical forms may be turned in to the nurse’s office to be kept on file in the student’s health record. Beginning school year 2010-11, students will be required to have the physical exam turned in prior to trying out for the athletic event. Questions may be directed to the school nurse at 781-618-8761.
