As you know, KSHSAA rules require every student participant in our interscholastic activity program to have a Preparticipation Physical Exam completed prior to practice or competition. For the upcoming school year, the form has been revised and we are hopeful that you, in your role as Executive Director of the Kansas Chapter of American Academy of Pediatrics, would help in notifying your members of this updated form. While we will still accept the previous version, we believe the new form provides additional perspective for student healthcare needs.
The new PPE form is available on our web site at http://www.kshsaa.org/Public/PDF/FORM-PPE.pdf and the Spanish version is available via http://www.kshsaa.org/Public/PDF/FORM-PPE(Spanish).pdf. The form now includes a cover page with specific responsibilities for students/parents, healthcare providers, and school administrators.
