Medical clearance for the 2024-25 school year

For checklists and parent letters sent out in preparation for the 2024-25 school year, see the forms and checklists page.

To participate in a sport, a student-athlete must have a physical exam completed at least every 13 months (i.e. every 12 months with a one month grace period). When your child has their well-child physical examination throughout the year, it’s a recommended good practice to have the healthcare provider complete the KS Physical Evaluation form. Parents can then submit the form to KS through the parent portal. Through the parent portal, you can view the date of the last physical exam we have on record. A student-athlete must also have health insurance in order to participate.

Mālama Ola is the enterprise division responsible for medical clearance and physical and mental health clinical services provided to KS students. It is comprised of the Health Services, Behavioral Health, and Athletic Health departments that support the three campuses, 30 preschools, and summer programs. The Mālama Ola division contributes to E Ola! by supporting child well-being, which helps optimize student learning.
