Physicals for Marching Band

Hello Everyone

UIL is requiring all students who receive PE Credit through Athletics or Fine Arts to have a physical exam on file with the school. For many band students, this will be a new requirement but will also be an important requirement to maintain the safety and health of our students.

We’re asking that everyone try to get their physical as soon as possible. (The district has asked us to have them completed by May 1st.) I understand this will be very difficult for families. I apologize for the confusion on the deadline. Please try to get the physical as soon as you can.

Once you receive the physical, you can upload the doctors notes to the link below.

Thanks
Kevin McNulty
