Important Information Regarding Physicals for Athletics

School physicals will no longer be offered at Westford Academy during the summer.

Last week the MIAA voted to align its requirements on physicals with the Mass Department of Public Health.  What this means is that physicals will expire 13 months from the exam date.  Students will no longer be allowed to continue participation until the end of the season.  Student’s eligibility will terminate once a physical has reached the 13 month limit.  

This message is being sent so that parents and families can schedule physicals in a timely manner for the upcoming school year.  



__________________________________________

A FRIENDLY REMINDER ABOUT FAN BEHAVIOR!  

I would like to take a moment to remind all parents, spectators and fans about appropriate conduct during interscholastic competitions.   It is very important for the culture of educational athletics that spectators demonstrate good sportsmanship at all times.   Please cheer for and encourage the Westford Academy teams and refrain from any negative comments/cheers toward the officials, players or opposing fans.  

Westford is a wonderful community with very supportive and caring parents and fans.  So please demonstrate this good sportsmanship at all times.  

Good luck to all teams as we complete this fall season.

Go Grey Ghosts!!
