Notes from the Nurse at Southern Aroostook-  For grades 6-12 and any current 4th and 5th graders planning on playing middle school soccer next year (2017-2018):  SACS Annual School Sports Physicals will be conducted on Friday, March 10th.  The cost is $15.00 per person. Physicals will be conducted on-site by our School Physician, Ronald Blum, M.D.  A completed "school physical form" (available in the School Health Office) and the $15.00 are due at the time of the physical.

If you child sees his/her own physician for a sports physical, please do provide the school with documentation of that physical exam.  In keeping with RSU# 50 athletic policy, no student will be allowed to participate in practices or games without proof of a physical examination from a doctor prior to the start of the sports season, and the physical cannot expire within that sport season.  There will be no waivers or exceptions.  Also, no player will be allowed to participate in games or practices without health insurance.  If you do not have your own insurance, school insurance is available for your child.  Right now, the basic school-approved plan costs $42.00/year. Information and applications are available in the high school office. Please feel free to call should you have any questions.  Thank-you.
