FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — FHN and Freeport High School have collaborated to create a safe plan for sports physicals for the 2020-21 season. The physicals will be done on the high school campus to ensure social distancing within the gymnasium while providing a safe environment for participants due to COVID-19 concerns.
Please attend during the designated time for your student’s intended sport (below) to ensure attendance capacity is held to the appropriate safety standard. Only the athlete and a parent/guardian are permitted in the building; no siblings or individuals not receiving a physical will be allowed entry. All persons entering the school must wear a mask at all times. Participants should enter through the south main gym doors on Empire; exit will be through the west parking lot by the grass field. Please park in the west parking area; students will be entering the Empire Street side of the school and exiting in the west lot.
Physicals cost $20 upon registration via cash or check only (ATM on site if needed); as in previous years, FHN donates this fee back to the school. The IHSA exam form and FHN consent form can be downloaded at www.fhn.org/sportsphysicals. All forms must be filled out and signed prior to arriving for the physical.
