Info on Athletic Physicals:
Physicals performed by a medical professional are required for participation in athletics and families must send in the most updated athletics physical to the school nurse. Physicals are valid for 13 months and then expire.
In order to approve athletes applications, please complete the task above. Your athlete may not try out if the physical cannot be turned in to us by Friday March 13th.
If you need a physical and cannot quickly visit your doctor, ask the main office or the nurse about Optimus Health, a clinic within our school who works in combination with your own personal doctor. They can perform doctors appointments, vaccines, athletic physicals, etc. Consent forms are required to access this service and are attached here: School Based Health Center Info.pdf Centro de salud-Version en espanol.pdf

Correction to the track schedule...the Wednesday May 1st practice at Bunnell is cancelled. The online schedule reflects this change as well. There will be no practice on Wednesday May 1st as it is a half day.
Good afternoon track families. Our 5/1 practice at Bunnell is cancelled due to the half day PLC. Our first meet is this Thurs in Fairfield! Buses will take the team to the meet and back to Flood after. Normally meets last 2.5 hours. We will use Remind to announce our return to Flood. Families feel free to attend. If families are driving athletes home, sign them out with coach before leaving. Any questions email Coach Bowcock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good evening Track families. Attached is a message to families and athletes about our meets for this season.
- Meets: Meets will be held throughout the season. All students should ride the bus back to the school after the meet and get picked up at Flood by a parent or guardian. Any other arrangements must be made clear to Mr. Bowcock 24 hours in advance through a written note or email. If families decide to attend the meet and bring their athlete home when they are done please notifying us via email or note and on the day of the meet please find coach at the meet to sign out before leaving.

- Away meet on May 2nd: We will have an away meet at Roger Ludlowe Middle School starting at 4pm. Our buses will depart at 3pm from Flood.

Normally this happens by lunchtime on the day of the meet.
