Announcements and Important Events
I hope this email finds you and your families well and enjoying the Summer Vacation. I am excited to be sending this email as things have progressed in our area and return to athletic opportunities appear to be in our near future! With that said we need to start planning for the Fall Sports seasons.
Lehighton has partnered with Lehigh Valley Health Network & Coordinated Health to yet again offer free Athletic Physicals for students in 7th-12th grade who are planning on playing a sport in the fall. This system is live now so you can start accessing this system immediately. Students must bring a completed PIAA Physical form with them to their appointment which I have attached and is also available off of the Athletics website under Forms & Links. Once it is completed you can return the forms to your respective school (High School or Middle School) within the district. Families can still get private physicians from their physicians as well and must also return the forms to their respective school but those fees are the responsibility of the family. Please see message below from LVHN for registration information.
As it stands now, the first day of Fall Sports practices begins August 10th for High School football heat acclimatization and August 17th for all other Middle School and High School activities. Forms must be returned by August 3rd for Football and August 10th for all other sports.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself at Kspotts@lehighton.org or our Assistant Athletic Director – Tom McCarroll at firstname.lastname@example.org
2020 PIAA Fall Physicals Registration
As partners in healthcare with Lehighton Area School District, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) and Coordinated Health, a part of LVHN, are committed to a safe return to athletic participation after COVID-19. We realize the unique challenges faced by families and school districts during this time and have teamed up with your school to keep our promise of delivering free, convenient physicals for all student-athletes.
Typically, physicals are provided at schools but with the influence of COVID-19, we will instead be offering free physicals at many of our convenient locations. These physicals will be done on an individual basis and scheduled directly with a provider.
How does this benefit you, the athlete? Our updated system is:
? Convenient. Schedule your free physical where and when it works for you.
? Safe. With COVID-SAFE zones and the region’s only COVID-FREE hospitals, LVHN is the safest place to receive medical care. Learn more.
? Easy. Click here to access our rapid appointment request form. Register now for a free PIAA physical.
At LVHN and Coordinated Health, we’re excited to get back to sports and can’t wait to join our school partners for the thrill of another season. No matter what you need this season, we’re here for you.
