SPORT PHYSICALS 

School sports are offered at Cedar Drive Middle School to students in grades 6 - 7- 8 (baseball gr 7 and 8 only).  Participation in school sports requires a complete physical exam prior to participation per New Jersey Department of Education Regulations. The only accepted NJ forms can be downloaded from the CDMS nurse’s page along with guidelines. All forms must be received and reviewed by the school nurse and or school physician BEFORE a student can participate in school sports.
PROOF OF 6TH GRADE IMMUNIZATIONS OR A LETTER FROM YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER OF SCHEDULED DATE TO RECEIVE Tdap and/or Meningococcal  VACCINATIONS IS PART OF THE 6TH GRADE SPORT PHYSICAL DOCUMENTS for incoming 6th grade students.
 
Physicals are good for 365 days. Current physicals on file in the health office from previous school year do not need to be resubmitted. See procedure for sport forms located under sport forms for additional information.  Additional forms are required for each sport season.
 

Students who have not received clearance may not participate in any practice or tryout. 

Please adhere to all deadlines and guidelines to assure that your child is able to participate at the start of the sport season.
