Announcements and Important Events
APS has finalized vaccination details for student participation in winter sports. Please see this memo outlining the vaccination requirements.
Winter sports begin on November 8 for swim/dive, basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, cheer and rifle. Indoor track begins November 15 and crew begins winter conditioning on November 18.
Please note three items:
1) All participants must be either vaccinated (as defined by receiving the second dose by November 8) or participate in daily COVID testing at the school.
2) Vaccination cards for previously submitted physicals should be emailed to email@example.com with the student's name in the subject line and a copy of the completed, legible vaccination card. For physicals which have not yet been submitted, please attach a copy of the vaccination card to the five-page VHSL physical before submitting.
3) All students who wish to not wear a mask while participating in an indoor sport MUST participate in daily COVID testing. We encourage all winter athletes to get tested daily in order to lower the risk of having to put teams on pause and miss practices and games. During the fall season, we have been testing over 300 student-athletes and band members daily.
COVID testing is offered free of charge daily during all three lunch periods and after-school. The enrollment form does ask for insurance information but insurance is only used in the case of a positive test. Regardless of insurance coverage/willingness to pay for a positive test, there will never be a charge to the student or family. Parents/guardians should enroll their student using this link https://intakeq.com/new/v2el2k/XYbiT3
