From the Nurse
If you are playing a sport in 2022-2023 and are in the 6-12 grade you must have a sports physical before practices start. This includes basketball, soccer, baseball, softball, cheer leading, and volleyball. Note: Sports Physicals are good for 2 years now so if your athlete had one last year, they do not need one again this year! You can also have your family doctor do them or the Pettis County Health Center does them for $20.00 by appointment. If you have any questions please contact Nurse Tiffany at 660-347-5621.
