    2020-2021 School Year – General Guidelines

    Safety is always paramount to PMSD and St. Luke’s, so please review the general guidelines below to help everyone promote increased safety by decreasing the risks associated with athletic participation:

    1)  Please make sure you have completed all sections of Family ID, and that the physical is signed (after June 1, 2020 by the health care provider and handed in to the athletic department.  We need to know if your child has any medical conditions such as allergies, epilepsy, asthma, diabetes, heart conditions, etc. Any athlete participating with a pre-existing medical condition must inform the AT and coach so emergency action plans can be discussed and implemented.

    2)  For the 2020-21 school year, ALL students must have a valid ImPACT baseline test completed.  These tests are being done at-home. Please email Evelyn Payne at epayne@pmsd.org to receive your link to the test and instructions.  Having a valid baseline assessment on file helps the medical team in the clinical management of your son/daughter should they suffer a concussion.

    3)  If a student is being evaluated and/or treated by an outside physician or specialist, a note clearing the student for activity is required before the student will be allowed to participate.  There are NO exceptions to this policy.
     
    4) If any athlete requires the use of an inhaler, Epi-pen, insulin kit or other special medications as prescribed by a health care professional, it is mandatory they bring it to each practice and game and have it easily accessible on the sidelines.
