It is mandatory that students submit their PIAA (including immunization) as soon as possible after May 31st, preferably by July 12th if they want to participate in any sport activity in the fall.
When school is in session, PIAA forms are submitted to the health suite where the child attends. Forms submitted during SUMMER MONTHS:
IMPORTANT: If a student (Grade 9 – 12) has not provided the PIAA forms prior to July 12th, PLEASE inform them of the following:
Students cannot practice with the team if they have not been cleared and processed.
