Nurse's Corner

WELCOME TO MIDDLE SCHOOL! YOUR SCHOOL NURSES ARE HOPING YOU ARE HEALTHY AND SAFE. WE WOULD LIKE TO OFFER GUIDANCE FOR SPORTS PHYSICALS AND IMMUNIZATIONS FOR THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR. WHILE WE WAIT FOR GUIDANCE REGARDING THE START OF SCHOOL AND THE ABILITY TO HAVE A FALL SPORTS SEASON, WE WILL PLAN ACCORDINGLY.


We hope your child will take advantage of the many interscholastic and intramural sports that we offer. The NJ Department of Education mandates that beginning in middle school, students must have an annual sports physical and other required forms completed in order to participate in school sports and intramurals. Students are not permitted to participate in sports unless these specific forms are completed.


We recommend that you submit the required forms even if your child is unsure if they are interested in school sports. It has been our experience that children change their minds. Better to be prepared so they have the option to participate.


We have three sports seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring). We are planning for the Fall Sports Season to start on September 15, 2020. Physical examinations done on 9/16/19 and after will be valid for the entire Fall Sports Season. Physicals are good for 365 days and students must have a valid sports physical on the first day of practice/tryouts.


The Annual Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Examination Forms are available to download from the district website www.freeholdtwp.k12.nj.us under the Sports/Activities link. This is the only form that may be used for sports. No other format will be accepted. Sports physicals must be completed on paper by the parent and healthcare provider. The other required sports forms will be available during the summer for electronic signature on the Genesis Parent Portal.


Fall Sports Forms are due by August 21st

Required Immunizations for 6th Grade

The NJDOE and the American Academy of Pediatrics have not changed immunization schedules and requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact your healthcare provider to schedule your child's immunizations. Per New Jersey law, students have 14 days from their 11th birthday to obtain the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines. Students that turn 11 years old before August 25, 2020, must submit proof of immunization in order to begin school in September.

Submitting Sports Physicals and Immunizations

FALL SPORTS FORMS ARE DUE BY AUGUST 21ST


Completed sports physicals and immunizations can be mailed to the Attention of your Middle School Nurse:


Mrs. Debbie King RN

279 Burlington Rd

At this time, forms cannot be dropped off at the school building. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT SPORTS PHYSICALS TO YOUR ELEMENTARY NURSE. If you are unable to submit your forms by the deadline, please contact your middle school nurse.
