Yearly Athletic Physicals

Highland Athletic Department is again coordinating athletic physicals for students. Doctors from Sharon Family Physicians and University Hospitals will be providing yearly sports physicals on Thursday, May 30. Physicals will be conducted from 12-4 p.m. at Highland High School. The cost is $20. Payment must be made at the time of the physical. Cash or check made payable to Highland Local Schools will be accepted.

Middle school students will be able to ride their bus to the high school for their scheduled physical (if after school). Parents will need to pick up their student from the high school.

Students may arrive anytime during their scheduled hour. You do not need to arrive at the top of the hour.

What to Bring: ALL STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE, SIGN AND BRING ALL PAGES OF THE OHSAA PHYSICAL FORM. This form can be found on the athletic page of Highland’s website, on Final Forms and hard copies are in the Athletic Department.  These forms require a parent/guardian signature. The physical will not be considered complete without the signed forms.

Chaperones Needed for Camp Experience

On September 25-27, 2019, Highland Middle School 6th graders will be traveling to Camp Wanake in Brewster, OH for the annual Outdoor Education Experience. Each year, several parent chaperones assist with the running of the camp. These volunteers help chaperone on the bus ride to and from camp, assist with a class taught by a Highland or Wanake staff member and with supervision for night activities. Due to staffing, typically, male chaperones are needed rather than female chaperones. Additionally, several volunteers with medical backgrounds are also needed to assist with our medical center. These volunteers can be male or female. All chaperones will need to get a background check completed through Medina County ESC prior to departure for camp. If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Melany Malquest at mmalquest@highlandschools.org by May 3. If you have a special talent or would be interested in leading a class rather than assisting, please include that information in your e-mail as well. All prospective volunteers will be confirmed before May 24.
