Parents, If your son or daughter had an athletic physical last year it is not necessary to get one for the upcoming school year. The only requirement would be to fill out both pages of the 2020-21 MHSAA Health Questionnaire that can be found using the web address below. If your son or daughter did not get a physical last year they will need one this year in order to participate in athletics. The athletic physical form can also be found using this web address. https://www.shepherdschools.net/o/shepherd-public-schools/browse/50335 If you have any questions email Pat Moschetti: pmoschetti@shepherdschools.net
