Physicals & NEW Health History Update Forms for Fall Sports Participation
All students planning to participate in sports must have one comprehensive sport physical per year. According to N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.2 et.seq. each candidate for a school athletic team must have a medical examination within 365 days of the sport's official start date.
An athlete who has not had a physical after August 10, 2019 (for Cheerleading, Football, or Tennis) or August 17, 2019 (for Cross Country, Field Hockey, Gymnastics, Soccer, or Volleyball) must complete the full physical packet which includes forms that need to be completed by parents AND a physician.
An athlete who had a physical more recently than the dates above only need complete the Health History Update Questionnaire that is only signed by the parent/guardian.
Physical forms and Health History Update Questionnaires can be returned to staff at the Manasquan High School Gymnasium entrance between 9 A.M. and 12 P.M. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
* A NEW Health History Update Questionnaire which includes questions related to COVID-19 is now required for Fall Sports participation. Be sure the Health History Update Questionnaire you have completed contains these questions at the bottom (questions 10 & 11) or your form will not be accepted. Students cannot participate without the NEW HHQ form completed.
Phase I Summer Workout Session July 13 – July 26
(Applies ONLY to Field Hockey, Football, & Soccer)
The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association issued their Phase I Return to Play Guidelines which govern summer workouts that may take place from July 13 to July 26, 2020.
Fall student athletes who intend to participate in the Phase I Summer Workouts must comply with the following two processes as required by the NJSIAA’s return to play guidelines:
#1 Parent/Guardian Must Complete COVID-19 Questionnaire Online through Parent Portal
Parents/guardians must login to the Manasquan Parent Portal with their parent account, click the Forms tab, and fill and submit the “MHS FALL 2020 NJSIAA COVID-19 Questionnaire” for each student athlete. Per the NJSIAA guidance, the COVID-19 Questionnaire must be completed seven (7) days prior to the start of the first workout session (i.e. July 6, 2020).
#2 Student or Parent/Guardian Must Complete COVID-19 Daily Screening Questions Online EACH DAY BEFORE WORKOUT
The NJSIAA guidance requires each student complete a form prior to EVERY workout prior to arriving on school grounds which asks if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 that day.
The electronic form will be available on the District website and the Manasquan Public School District app and can be completed on a computer or a mobile phone/tablet.
The form will be opened at 7:00 A.M. each day of workouts. Students or parents/guardians must complete this form between 7:00 A.M. and before they report for the workout.
(The online form is not yet available but will be visible and linked to the website and app no later than Friday, July 10th.)
If a students and/or parent guardian answers “Yes” to any of the symptom questions, they will not be able to submit the form and MAY NOT come to the workout.
This form will be reviewed electronically by the school staff member taking temperatures before admitting students to the workout session. ALL STUDENTS participating in Phase I workouts will be screened according to the NJSIAA guidance prior to being admitted to the workout session.
