Effingham Community Unit #40 athletic physicals for Junior High and High School athletes will be held on Monday, June 3 in the Effingham High School gym lobby.  The girls physicals will begin at 5:15 p.m. through 6 p.m. and the boys physicals will run from 5:45 p.m. through 6:30 p.m.  The doors will open at 5:15 p.m. to allow time for the girls to begin filling out their physical cards.  The doors will be locked at 6:30 p.m.  Due to changes in the IHSA and IESA policies, all physical cards must be signed by a parent.   Parents must accompany students to sign off on the physical cards.  Students will be ineligible if the Physical card does not have a parent signature in all appropriate locations.

The cost of the physicals will be $20.  Students should enter the building from the gymnasium entrance doors.  Pay for the physical with cash, but if you have to pay by check make checks payable to cash.

Important information on the physical cards includes questions regarding medicines, allergies, and general health history.  In addition, there is a parent signature of consent for the IHSA Steroid Testing Policy.

Reminder: these physicals are for sports only.  Kindergarten, sixth-grade and ninth-grade physicals must be done at a family doctor's office.  All physical cards will be delivered to the attendance center your child will be a student at next year.

If you wish to pick up a physical card ahead of time, you may do so at the junior high school main office or at the high school in the main office or the athletic office.  You may also pick up a physical card if you plan to get your physical done elsewhere. Questions can be directed to Mr. David Woltman, Effingham Unit #40 activity director at 217-540-1269.
