SPORTS PHYSICALS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR                        

As students enter into 7th and 9th grades in the Shoreline School District, sports physicals (officially known as “Secondary Student Health Report”) are required to be able to try out and play in a sport after school. The entire sports packet includes forms for Code of Conduct, Physical Examination, Concussion Information, Athlete Information, Permission, and Insurance (please make sure to complete the ENTIRE page), Middle School Athletic Training, Form packets can be picked up at anytime in the Einstein Middle School office. These forms can also be downloaded from the Einstein web page under Athletics, Athletics Information, and registration information. It is recommended that a doctor appointment be scheduled sometime after June 1ST of the current year. The sports physical is good for 24 months based on the date of the actual physical exam by the health care practitioner. Bring the Sports Physical Form with you to the doctor’s appointment. The left side of the form is completed by the parent/guardian and the right side is completed by your health care provider. Fall sports usually start the first week of school so it is imperative that these forms be turned in that week if your student wishes to participate. If you have questions, please call Einstein Nurse, 206.393.4734.



Parents please remember to pickup your child’s medications in the health office before the end of the school year as the school office will not be open all summer.

We cannot give medications to students to bring home – we can only release these to an adult regardless of the medication.



There will be an Immigration Information Forum at Brookside on 6/14, 7:00-8:30 in the Music Room.

The City of Lake Forest Park is pleased to hold a second information event on current immigration rules and their impacts. The first session was held in Spanish at LFP Elementary. Brookside is glad to host the City engaging constituents about this topic.
