To be eligible for participation in interscholastic athletics/spirit groups, a student must have on file with the superintendent or principal, a signed statement by a practicing physician or registered physicians assistant certifying the student has passed an adequate physical examination and is physically fit to participate. (See KSHSAA Handbook, Rule 7.) A complete history and physical examination must be performed upon a student’s initial entrance into KSHSAA interscholastic athletics/cheerleading.
The annual history and the physical examination shall not be taken earlier than May 1 preceding the school year for which it is applicable. The KSHSAA recommends completion of this evaluation by athletes/cheerleaders at least one month prior to the first practice to allow time for correction of deficiencies and implementation of conditioning recommendations.

Nut Allergies: Nut-Free Snack Suggestion List Below
Beloit Elementary is a Peanut-Nut Free School
Question: Why is my child's school peanut-free or nut-free? And because it is peanut-free or nut-free, what foods can she bring?
Answer: Schools ban peanuts or tree nuts when there are severely allergic children enrolled because those allergic children can react even to tiny traces of peanut or nut dust in the air, or to peanut or nut residue on a lunch table. In the worst-case scenario, these reactions can be life-threatening.
Unfortunately, peanut and tree nut allergies aren't like other allergies. Most people with food allergies — even severe allergies — can manage their allergies by simply not eating foods that contain those allergens. They read labels, don't eat food if they don't trust the food, and they ask questions about potential cross-contamination.
People with peanut and tree nut allergies follow all these steps too. However, they need to take additional precautions, because it's possible for them to react to traces of nut dust in the air (from peanut shells, for example).
In addition, nuts and peanuts are full of natural oils that leave residues. While these residues can be removed with common household cleaners, it can be difficult or impossible to clean tables in the middle of lunch, for example, or for school cleaning staff to know to clean oils off of tainted walls or doorknobs during the school day.
Because of these issues, and because peanut and tree nut allergies can be life-threatening, many schools have responded by designating peanut- or nut-free lunch tables or classrooms, or even by declaring the entire campus peanut- or nut-free.
If you have any questions feel free to contact the School Nurse.
