Health and Safety

Upon entering high school and each year thereafter, a Medical History form must be completed by each student.  In addition, an Athletic Physical is required each year of all participants in Athletics, Fall Band, Cheer and Dance competitions. A standardized form is avail­able from TAPPS, which school officials may provide to physicians if they wish. The completed form is kept on file in the TAPPS database.

In addition, at the start of each year, TAPPS member schools shall provide students and parents with education in Cardiac Health, Concussion, Steroid and Substance Abuse, Nutrition, Injury Reporting and Return to Play Protocols.
