Any student-athlete that has been evaluated by a doctor for ANY injury or illness must have the Morristown HS “Participation Status Form” (link below) completed by his or her doctor.
If a student is injured, at School or at Home, they must have this form completed by the doctor for EVERY visit, even if they have not missed a game or practice.
Please have your injured/ill student-athletes see the trainers with their paperwork ASAP. This will expedite their rehab/treatments and their return to play.
Thank you for your cooperation with this important matter.
