Free physicals available for athletes
Gatesville ISD will be partnering with Coryell Health Clinic--Gatesville to offer free athletic physicals on Tuesday, July 28.
Physicals will only be offered from 4:30-7 p.m. and are available by appointment only. Start time is 4:30 p.m. and exams will be scheduled every 10 minutes.
The free physicals are available to students in grades 7-12 that will be participating in athletics, band, cheer and dance during the upcoming 2020-21 school year. GISD requires all incoming 7th graders, anyone who does not already have a valid physical on file, plus any child who checks “yes” on any of the cardiac questions (numbers 1-6) on the Medical History form, to get an updated physical exam prior to participation in any extracurricular activity that requires them. Here are some guidelines to go by when setting up your child’s appointment:
* Email one of the contact persons with a list of four requested appointment time slots that you would be able to fulfill (for example: 4:30, 4:40, 4:50, 5:00).
* Parents will be notified by email to confirm their child’s time slot.
