Hello 7/8th Grade Parents,
Welcome to the start of a new school year.
For those students planning on playing a sport this year, here is some important information:
Any student who is playing a sport for the 2016-17 school year, must have a PIAA COMPREHENSIVE INITIAL PRE-PARTICIPATION PHYSICAL EVALUATION (CIPPE) that is dated after May 31st 2016. The form is available at the following link: http://www.piaa.org/assets/web/documents/Section%20VII%20Forms.%20CIPPE_FORM_SECTIONS_1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_AND_9_(no_shading)(1).pdf
CIPPE Forms can be submitted at anytime to the Athletic Department or Athletic Trainers, the earlier the better so that the Athletic Trainers can clear students and complete rosters of those interested in playing a particular sport.
Next, the PAC Middle School League which we are part of will have separate 7th and 8th grade teams, this is a change for some of the schools in the PAC. The PAC was previously a Jr. HS model which allowed for 7th/8th and 9th graders to complete on combined teams. Upper Merion was considering adopting that format and was ready to move to that model, the League has since decided to change to a 7th and 8th grade stand alone model. This continues to be discussed but it was decided that the format will be separate 7th and 8th grade teams for the entire 2016-2017 school year.
