Physicals and Participation Requirements

Brandon Valley School District encourages co-curricular activity participation - and students in grades 7-12 have many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities, including marching band and school-sponsored/supported sports.
- Students who wish to participate in extra/co-curricular activities during the 2023-2024 school year may participate, when the conditions outlined below are met. These conditions must be met PRIOR to participation.

(The Brandon Valley physical from has comprehensive sign-offs specific to Brandon Valley, allowing you to avoid having to complete/sign multiple different forms when another physical form is used.)
- The 2023-2024 Brandon Valley physical form is signed by the PARENT and the STUDENT, and BOTH PAGES of the physical form are submitted to the Brandon Valley High School or Middle School offices.
- The student and parent have reviewed and agree to the information on the following documents:

(Completion of the Family Access verification process is required annually.)

- By signing page 1 of Brandon Valley’s Physical Form, the parent and student agree to all of the above and are also aware of the information below.
- Warning and Safety: Although participation in supervised interscholastic activities may be one of the least hazardous any student will engage in, by its nature participation in these activities includes a risk of injury which may range in severity from minor to catastrophic injuries, including permanent paralysis or death. Serious injuries are not common in supervised school activity programs; however, it is possible only to minimize, not eliminate this risk.
- Medical Insurance: It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide adequate insurance to cover any medical expenses that may be incurred while a student is participating in a school-sponsored activity. Student accident insurance can be obtained at: http://www.sas-mn.com/k12.html
