Jenks Public Schools will not offer sports physicals prior to 2020-2021 school year
In a recent letter addressed to the Jenks Public School District, Jenks Public Schools Head Athletic Trainer Mike Catterson said due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the school will not host its annual sports physicals or mass drug testing events as done in the past.
The letter goes on to say each student-athlete at Jenks Public Schools are still required to complete a physical prior to their first practice per Oklahoma Secondary Activities Association rules. For a physical to be valid for the 2020-2021 school year, it must be dated after May 1, 2020.
Catterson said his first recommendation is for the student-athlete to complete a physical with his or her primary care/family physician using the Jenks Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Form and Medical History Form. Both forms can be found on the JPS website under Quicklinks>Athletic Forms.
RankOne Forms for the 2020-2021 school year are now available to be completed online as well, the letter says. The link to RankOne can be found at https://jenkspublicschool.rankonesport.com.
