Cohoes City School District


Blue card day, fall sports physicals

July 20, 2017—Any student in grades 7-12 interested in playing a fall sport must receive clearance from the school nurse PRIOR to tryouts. Clearance cards (blue cards) can be distributed to students on Tuesday, Aug. 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in the nurse's office at Cohoes High School.

This is for student athletes with proof of a physical within the last 12 months from your doctor. Students should also bring a copy of the concussion information sheet signed by a parent.

Athletes in need of a physical

Students who have not received clearance from their doctor within the last year can come into the high school nurse’s office on Wednesday, Aug. 2 from 9-11:30 a.m. for a physical, or come to the Cohoes Middle School nurse’s office on Thursday, August 17, between 12 noon and 2 p.m. for a physical with the district’s physician, Dr. DiTursi from Harmony Mills Pediatrics.

The above dates are the ONLY days students will be able to receive a physical free of charge prior to the start of the season. Parents are not required to attend, but must send their child with a completed parent permission and health history form.

A special note for 7th graders and first-time athletes

The parent permission and health history form (distributed in the June report cards and available on the website) must be returned with physicals.

Questions can be directed to Mr. Kostrzębski at 237-9100 or
