If you are not taking advantage of the school athletic physical:
WHEN YOUR STUDENT PLANS TO SEE THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN, YOU WILL NEED TO PRINT AND TAKE SECTION 6:PIAA FORM : ***Physical must be completed on or after June 1, 2019*** If your student is unable to see their Personal Physician, a CIPPE athletic physical can be obtained at MedExpress for $30.00. Please ensure that Mrs. Lisa Popovich, the High School Nurse, receives a copy of your completed SECTION 6: PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION (CIPPE) AND CERTIFICATION OF AUTHORIZED MEDICAL EXAMINER. This can be done by emailing a scanned or clear photo of the completed Section 6 form to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropping off the form at the high school office.
Baseline Concussion Tests must be completed with the PTHS Athletic Trainers prior to full clearance being received. If your student has a completed ImPACT test with their physician within the last 2 years, you may submit that asa baseline. If your student has already completed a Baseline Concussion Test, they do not need a new one unless they have had an injury (i.e. concussion) or are informed by the PTHS Medical Staff.
For Baseline Concussion Testing information after June 1st, please check the PTWarriors.org website for information.
During the school year, Baseline Concussion Tests can be obtained in the High School Athletic Training Room, Monday through Thursday from 2:30-4:00pm. If you are unable to attend during that time, please call 724-744-0580 to schedule with one of the Athletic Trainers.
During June and July, registrations will be approved weekly. In August, please allow up to 48 hours for all registrations and CIPPE forms to be cleared after they are submitted to the High School Nurse; final clearance will be given by HS medical staff. It is highly recommended that registrations are completed and CIPPE forms are turned in at least two weeks prior to the start of fall sports (August 12th). Registrations
and CIPPE forms submitted late will not be guaranteed the opportunity to participate on the first day of practice/tryouts. ALL registrations and/or CIPPE Sections 6 forms will NOT be cleared the same day they are submitted to the High School Nurse.
You can always check the status of your child's Athletic Participation Clearance Status by logging into your FamilyID Account and selecting "VIEW OR EDIT MY REGISTRATIONS" select the "SUMMARY" tab at the end of the current registration. You will see a blue section that says "MEMO FROM PENN-TRAFFORD ATHLETICS".The information in that section will tell you the status of their clearance for athletic participation.

STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
What is the Student Assistance Program?
The Student Assistance Program is designed to provide various services to meet your child’s social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs. The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program is to identify students at risk and help those students to overcome barriers in order for them to be successful in their everyday lives.
Another goal of the Student Assistance Program is to facilitate collaboration between home and school and provide interventions and/or referrals to internal or external support services in order to address student needs.
