• Participation Form,
• Medical history form,
• UIL concussion acknowledgement form,
• UIL steroid agreement,
• UIL sudden cardiac awareness form,
• EISD medication protocol form, and
• Asthma plan (If student has asthma). This form MUST be dated after July 1st in order to be valid. Asthma Medicine Plan

Physicals will begin after school. 

Any student who needs a physical in order to participate in interscholastic sports that does NOT attend these physical dates will have to obtain their own to a physical by a qualified professional (chiropractor, nurse practitioner, or medical doctor) to get a physical. 
Students who intend to receive a free physical will be required to fill out paperwork and return it as follows:
HIGH SCHOOL students who do not have athletics and are interested can pick up a physical packet from their campus athletic trainers. Return the completed packet back to the H.S. Athletic Trainer.
MIDDLE SCHOOL students, please return your physical packet to the Athletic Campus Coordinator.
Brentwood MS – Guadalupe Guevara, Gus Garcia MS – Larry Machado, Wrenn MS – Kemmie Lewis

Note: It is IMPERATIVE that all paperwork is filled out entirely, signed by the student and parent BEFORE a physical can be administered. The student will not be able to proceed to the physical unless all paper work is filled out correctly. On the day of the physicals, there will be a check in station and staff members will review the physical packets. The doctors will not be able to give a physical to any student, unless paperwork is properly completed. Students are to wear comfortable attire as they will be asked to demonstrate some physical exercises. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
