2020-2021 Athletic Clearance Updates
(Updated: September 30, 2020)
 
All athletic clearance procedures must be completed by this date. Failure to complete will delay your son/daughter's participation in athletics. 
Please read carefully (even if you think you are cleared) as there have been updates!
 
 
 
COVID-19 UPDATE (SEPTEMBER 30, 2020)
All athletes must sign and submit a copy of the COVID-19 Assumption of Risk and Release of Liability Form. The form is available at the top of this page AND at the bottom for you to download.
 
This form must be submitted prior to participation. To submit, you must email a PDF copy (not a photo) to WHSATHLETICCLEARANCE@WVUSD.ORG or drop it off in a sealed envelope to the black mailbox in the front office. Failure to submit this will delay your son/daughter's participation in athletics. 
 
If you submitted your athletic clearance paperwork prior to September 30th, you are not completely cleared yet. You must submit this COVID-19 form to be fully cleared.
