We hope everyone is remaining well and safe. We appreciate your flexibility and patience during these unprecedented times. We have some information to provide you about what is happening in athletics for the remaining of the school year.
Uniform and equipment return was last Wednesday and Friday. Thank you to the athletes who returned their uniform. If you still have a uniform we will have another drop day next Monday May 11th from 9am-11am. Letters and pins will also be available for pick up. All items must be turned in or your name will be placed on the obligation list.
New Physical Forms and Process
As of May 1st all physical forms are now digital. No more paper physicals. The new District approved ONLINE clearance platform is with Home Campus through the FHSAA. Each student who plans on trying out for an FHSAA sport in the 2020-2021 school year MUST create an account and complete the necessary requirements. All but one form requires electronic signatures. The EL2/Physical must be uploaded. To begin, go to https://athleticclearance.fhsaahome.org and create an account. ATHLETES MUST USE THEIR OCPS STUDENT EMAIL WHEN CREATING THEIR ACCOUNT. You can use this link as a guide to create a profile. Athletic Clerance SIgn Up Guide. If students need a copy of their physical from this past school year to upload they can email our trainer Jillian Sutton (Jillian.email@example.com ) their FULL name, student number, and current grade at WHS by Friday, May 15th.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we will not be hosting a physical night this school year or during the summer. If a student needs a physical they can utilize Paramount Urgent Care located next door to the school. Let them know that you are with Windermere High School when you arrive. If you picked up a physical form prior to May 1st it is invalid. The new physical forms are also located on our website at www.windermereathletics.com.
