Also, on this form will be the results of a physical examination conducted by a practicing physician, physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner. One examination per year is required and is conducted at the student’s expense. Students must file with the Athletic Office a complete FCSS Physical Packet (see link below) prior to taking part in any school-sponsored practice or clinic/camp. Additional forms may be required. The FCSS Physical Packet is also available in the front office. We will only accept these forms. ALL FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED AND CLEARED BY MRS.

COUNTY ATHLETIC GUIDELINES:
The student must provide insurance coverage information on the physical/parent permission form (GHSA and County approved ONLY). If a family wishes to purchase student accident insurance for their child, a form can be obtained from the Athletic Office. The Forsyth County School District does not pay for medical expenses related to injury during competitions or practices. Personal insurance or purchased school insurance is required. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to obtain the appropriate insurance coverage.
Physical Examination and Parent Permission:
It is strongly recommended that all athletes obtain physicals during the scheduled time provided through the Middle Schools. Forms are available at the Forsyth County Athletic webpage, PGMS Athletics webpage and/or the front office at PGMS. Physicals that expire in the middle of any sport season will be considered expired prior to its beginning.Piney Grove Athletic DirectorDavid A.
