School Sports Physical

Many schools and school districts require a variety of forms and certifications before students are allowed either to attend class or participate in various sports. The requirements for various forms depend on the school but may include those listed below. Be certain to bring your blank forms to your appointment prior to the due date set by your school.

Monitoring Growth and Development

The early years can be a time to watch and relish the growth and advancement of your child. At each wellness visit, the doctor will monitor the physical and mental development of your child and will be available to discuss any concerns you may have. During these visits, the doctor will check your child’s heartbeat, breathing, stomach, reflexes, temperature, and other vital signs. Blood test are sometimes scheduled as are other tests such as x-rays or scans. Children grow, change, and mature at different rates, and your doctor is a wealth of information for you and a valuable health resource for your child. Your doctor will explain any issues he or she notices as well as demonstrate healthy practices to employ at home.

Acute Concussion Evaluation (ACE) Care Plan

This plan was developed by the Centers for Disease Control for children who may have received a concussion playing a sport or participating in any other activity. The form presents a guideline for a child’s gradual return to daily activities including daily routines, school and sports. The form list do’s and don’ts to allow complete healing.

Seizure Care Plan

In Houston this form is available in both English and Spanish. This plan provides the basic information the school staff needs to know to assist a student who may have a seizure. It includes first aid, parent and physician contact information, and specific medications. This form was also developed in conjunction with the CDC.

Asthma Care Plan

This form contains most of the information a school needs to help manage children’s asthma while they are in school. It usually includes an asthma action plan, asthma history form, and encounter forms for school nurses. There is also a contact form school nurses can use to advise physicians of asthma issues and whether or not the child is participating in P.E.

Allergy Action Plan

Many students are allergic to various foods or other materials. The Allergy Action Plan is used by the school to help monitor activities as well as allow the students to self-administer medications. The parent, student, and physician must work closely with the school to ensure the health and well-being of the student during the time they are in school. At Sunrise, we will assist you with questions, help complete the forms, and advise as to the proper treatment plan for your student.

Diabetes Medical Management Form

The Houston school district offers a long and short form in both English and Spanish. These forms may include blood glucose targets, a schedule of blood checks, and the child’s self-care/medication skills. Treatment protocols and details regarding insulin therapy may be included.

Sports Participation Parent Approval and Physical Exam Forms

Most schools require any student participating in a sport to both have the approval of their parents and be physically fit. At Sunrise, we can assist any parent in completing these forms and providing a physical exam and medical history that might be required. We believe it is a good practice for a student to undergo a physical exam before beginning a rigorous activity regardless of form requirements. This will ensure your student doesn’t have any heart, lung, or other problem before they start the activity.

Answering Questions or Discussing Areas of Concern

During the time between visits, it’s recommended that you make a list of questions or issues you observe or that come up. Bring this list with you to your next visit. Answers to your questions are important for your child. These discussions with your doctor and the professional staff help ensure you are comfortable with your experience at Sunrise and with your child’s progress. Wellness visits are an excellent time to discuss issues such as formulas, breastfeeding, proper diet at different ages, preparing for pre-school, vaccinations, fluoride in diet, physical and mental development, and any other issues or concerns.
