SHAPE Collaboration Moves to Wednesday

See the attached letter from DoDEA-West superintendent Kent Worford, which explains the switch to Wednesday collaboration (and early release of students) for School Year 2019-2020.

School Physicals for SY 19-20

From the Nurse:

Students interested in any sports/extracurriculars at SHAPE HS should arrange to have a Sports Physical completed this June or July to allow for the start of practices/tryouts in August 2019. The DoDEA interscholastic athletic program requires a current physical to be on file with the School Nurse before a student may tryout, participate, or attend a working practice.  "Current" means a completed form dated within 1 year (365 days) of the date needed to participate.  For example, if a physical is dated 1 AUG 2018, the student is not eligible to practice or tryout for the upcoming fall season since activities will start after 1 AUG.  

It is extremely difficult to arrange a sports physical appointment at the SHAPE clinic in AUG and SEP due to the change in providers and busy start of the school year.  Do not wait until AUG to try to get an appointment or you may be ineligible for tryouts. There are no exceptions to the sports physical rule.

The HS accepts the completed/signed AE 608 CYSS Sports Physical document and other U.S. state-approved forms.  The form must be submitted to the School Nurse per policy in order to clear a student to tryout/participate.


School Year 2019-2020 Available

The calendar for next year is approved and available. The first day for students will be Monday, August 19. See the attached calendar for the complete year.
