Incoming freshman are required to submit a physical examination and proof of required immunizations by the first day of school. This physical exam date may not be more than one year older than the first day of school. This physical exam will also count as a sports physical if the student plans to participate in athletics that year. Other non-incoming freshman students, or upperclassmen are not required to submit another physical exam unless they are participating in an athletic activity including marching band. Sports physicals must be updated every thirteen months, per IHSA rules.
