PRIVIT UPDATE - June 12
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IHSAA has required an IHSAA Health History Update Questionnaire and Consent & Release for 2020-21 year. In order to participate in Practices and Contests at Avon Middle School North during the 2020-21 school year on a school-sponsored team, a student who had a prior pre-participation physical examination completed and such examination was completed more than 90 days prior to the first day of official practice for the student’s sport, may, in lieu of having a 2020-21 Pre-Participation Physical Examination form completed, provide this Health History Update Questionnaire, completed and signed by the student’s parent or guardian, or by the emancipated student. Provided, should any question on this Questionnaire be answered in the affirmative (‘Yes’), then the student must have a 2020-21 Pre-Participation Physical Examination form completed. This form will be completed in Privit. All student-athletes must fill out this form prior to participating in any school workout. All clearance status’ have been reset in Privit.
Attention all Parents and Prospective Student-Athletes:
I know there are questions about athletics and physicals floating around. I want to try and answer some of these. Please know this is an evolving situation and things may change. I am hoping to continue to keep lines of communication open for you all. Also, please note that as of right now, doctors are only seeing patients dealing with a wellness issue. I have personally reached out to my son’s doctor to find out if they are currently performing wellness check-ups and/or physicals. I was informed that doctors are hoping that over the summer they will be able to start making appointments for athletic physicals. I would suggest you also reach out to your medical provider, when/if you have questions about scheduling appointments. I share the following information for when those types of appointments can occur.
Any student wishing to participate in athletics for the 2020/21 school year must have a physical on file through our PRIVIT system. This is a requirement for any student-athlete wishing to participate in an open gym, practice, tryout or game.
Upon receiving guidance from the IHSAA recently, students who will be in 8th grade next year and have a physical and account on file from the 19/20 school year will be allowed to use that same physical for 20/21. Any incoming 7th grader, new enrollee or student currently at North without a physical wishing to participate in sports will need to still obtain a physical and upload that into PRIVIT while also signing necessary forms.
Physicals can be obtained through a doctor’s office, wellness clinics, minute clinics, etc. Please see the above about a possible timeline those types of appointments may begin to take place.
Current students with an account may be asked to re-sign necessary forms on the PRIVIT site.
As we navigate this situation, more information will be put on our webpage. Directions for PRIVIT are currently posted on the main athletics page. There will be a period of time when the site is down for a rollover to occur. We will do our very best to continue to give updated information as we receive it.
Please reach out to your medical provider or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. I will do my best to get an answer and reply in a timely manner.

2020 Athletic Physical Form - NEW
Requirements for Athletic Participation - PRIVIT
For the 2019-20 school year ACSC is continuing to use a completely paperless clearance process. The process includes a paperless IHSAA Pre-Participation Physical. A parent/guardian and student-athlete will be required to create an account and manage the necessary documents using the Privit Portal. This process will provide a higher level of security and efficiency than the previous process. This process will be for everyone including those coming to ACSC Physical Night and those students who are going another place to get a sports physical. Detailed instructions to complete the new process can be found by visiting the following link: ACSC2019 Physical Information
PHYSICAL FORM - take this page to your doctor and then upload completed form to your PRIVIT account (we DO NOT take any paper forms in the Athletic Office)
Please note: you need to select a team when you create your PRIVIT account. You can select all teams that your student is interested in joining.
