SAMS March Edition of the SAMS Scoop
Attached is our March edition of the SAMS Scoop.  This is a short “newsletter” that we will be sending monthly to the students, teachers, community members, administrators, etc. to share out all of the incredible things that we do at SAMS.
Spring Sports Physicals

The PIAA requires one comprehensive physical per year for eligibility to participate in interscholastic athletics. The PIAA requires that the date on the PIAA Physicians’ Form, Section 6, must be no earlier than June 1, 2022, for the upcoming school year. If the date on the form is incorrect, the physical form will be returned, and the athlete will be ineligible to participate until the physical form is dated properly. We do not require any immunization information as is stated in the physical packet. We will not accept any physical paperwork that is not on the PIAA AND SHALER AREA forms that are downloadable at the bottom of this page.
