    Step 1 – Sign-up with the Nurse:

    If your child did not sign up with the school nurse during the past school year, they will need to see the school nurse ASAP.   During the summer recess, the nurse’s office will be open based on a schedule that will be published on the UMS & MHS website calendars. This schedule will be available on the website starting June 1st.  Please stop in the nurse’s office to pick up the appropriate form.  The school nurse will give you either the Physical Evaluation Form or the Health History Update Form depending on your child’s last sports physical date.

    All students going into 7th or 8th grade must sign-up with the UMS nurse

    All student going into 9th thru 12th grades must sign-up with the MHS nurse

    All MHS sports forms are due in the nurse’s office by Thursday July 27th

    All UMS sports forms are due in the nurse’s office by Thursday August 17th

    Please do not wait until the due date to hand in your forms.  GET THEM IN EARLY!!!  We cannot guarantee that forms submitted after the due dates will be cleared in time for the start of tryouts and practices. 

    All Physical Evaluation Forms must be reviewed by the school physician per NJ state law for your child to be cleared to participate.  Please hand your forms into the nurse by the date listed above to allow enough time for review and processing.  Forms must be submitted directly to the school nurse.  Forms are not to be handed into the main office, emailed, faxed or mailed to the school at any time.  The health office will deliver the forms to the school physician for review. 

    No clearance from our school physician will take place August 21st thru August 25th.  Please keep that in mind when scheduling your child’s physical. 

    The Allergy Action Plan Form is required once per year ONLY if your child’s physician has prescribed an Epi Pen for your child’s allergy. The allergy action plan must be renewed by your physician each school year.  Please note that your child will not be allowed to participate in athletics without a completed and updated Allergy Action Plan on file in the nurse’s office. 

    All forms can be accessed by going to the athletic departments website at: http://www.mtsd.k12.nj.us/Page/10963

    Step 2 - Register Online with FamilyID:

    Montgomery Athletic Department uses the FamilyID athletic registration program. You must register for a team each sports season. Failure to register each season with FamilyID will prevent your child from being cleared to participate.  The FamilyID program does not include the submission of the Physical Evaluation Form, the Health History Update Form or the Allergy Action Plan.
