2. Make an appointment with your Band or Dance Guard member's physician - need to schedule a physical for Athletic clearance
3. The process for registering for athletic clearance and transportation has gone paperless. Now parents can submit clearances and pay fees from anywhere.
There have been a few changes to the process. Due to the unique needs of each program, as well as the varying size of athletic programs each season, transportation contributions are now based on semester/seasonal activities as opposed to year-long programs. Medical clearances (physicals) are valid for 1 calendar year and should be updated on an annual basis.
