LISD offering free physicals to middle, high school athletes

Wed Mar 30, 2016
King said the physicals will be held Wednesday, April 20 at Longview High School, and the only "cost" for admission is their completed paperwork.

"Please complete the paperwork that was given your son or daughter and return it to their coach or the athletic trainers by Wednesday, April 6th," he said. "This completed paperwork will be your child’s admission for a free physical examination."

Middle school students will be provided transportation to and from the high school on April 20, King said, but this is one-time opportunity. In addition, several Longview-area doctors are donating their time in order to provide this service to LISD students free of charge.

"(April 20) will be the only free physical examination provided to our students so we urge you to take advantage of this opportunity," he said.

For more information, parents of high school students can contact Lobo athletic trainers Deirdre Scotter (903) 803-5869 and Jeff Derrick (903) 663-7160. Parents of middle school students can contact their campus coaching staff.
