New Physical Form Starting May 1st – Effective May 1, 2021, there will be a new physical form to use when completing physicals. The current physical form will no longer be accepted. We will update our website with this form once it is provided by the county.
New Grading Policy Implications – If a student receives a No Mark (NM), that class will not count as a passing class toward eligibility. Student athletes need to be passing at least 5 classes to participate in VHSL athletics. If a student receives a Pass (P) as a grade, it will count for VHSL eligibility, however the NCAA will not recognize it as a credit.
