TRENTON, Mo. – Wright Memorial Hospital and the Grundy County Health Department are again working together to offer sports physical exams for Trenton middle and high school students planning to participate in athletic/cheerleading activities during the 2023-2024 school year. Sports physical exams at Pleasant View, Spickard, Laredo, Galt and Humphreys schools will be scheduled at a later date.
Free sports physical exams for Trenton Middle School and Trenton High School students will be offered on Thursday, March 2. Providers and nurses from the Wright Memorial Physicians’ Group, along with Grundy County Health Department personnel, will visit Trenton Middle School and Trenton High School to perform on-site physicists throughout the day.
Students desiring a free sports physical must obtain the MSHSAA form available from the school, the Grundy County Health Department, or online at www.grundycountyhealth.org. The entire form must be completed before the exam, including the signature of the parent/guardian. Please follow the instructions attached to the MSHSAA form carefully to ensure that the exam can be completed.
In order for the student to be authorized to take a physical exam, a form must be completed and signed. However, parents/guardians must not accompany the student. Completed forms must be returned to the school by Thursday 23 February.
If a student fails the sports physique exam, an appointment with the student’s primary care physician will need to be made to address sports physique concerns in a more detailed exam.
