JUST A REMINDER THAT FALL SPORTS WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, AUGUST 16th, 2021. ALL STUDENT ATHLETES MUST HAVE AN UPDATED PHYSICAL ON FILE IN THE NURSES OFFICE WITHIN THE LAST TWO YEARS. This is a new policy as they used to have to be updated every 13 

months. Also, please be reminded that these summer opportunities will end August 1st. The MPA has a hands-off period for 2 weeks prior to the August 16th start date. Players cannot have contact with coaches during that 2 week period. It is a nice little rest for all involved before the pre-season starts. 


PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.

TICK SEASON - Make sure you and your student athlete are taking the appropriate steps to protect yourself!


Preventing Tick Bites

page1image3112

While it is a good idea to take preventive measures against ticks year-round, be extra vigilant in warmer months (April-September) when ticks are most active.

Avoid Direct Contact with Ticks

Avoid wooded and bushy areas with high grass and leaf litter. Walk in the center of trails.

Repel Ticks with DEET or Permethrin

Use repellents that contain 20 to 30% DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) on exposed skin and clothing for protection that lasts up to several hours. Always follow product instructions. Parents should apply this product to their children, avoiding hands, eyes, and mouth.


Use products that contain permethrin on clothing. Treat clothing and gear, such as boots, pants, socks and tents with products containing 0.5% permethrin. It remains protective through several washings. Pre-treated clothing is available and may be protective longer.

Other repellents registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may be found at http://cfpub.epa.gov/oppref/insect/. (http://cfpub.epa.gov/oppref/insect/) (http://www.cdc.gov/Other/disclaimer.html)

Find and Remove Ticks from Your Body

Bathe or shower as soon as possible after coming indoors (preferably within two hours) to wash off and more easily find ticks that are crawling on you.

Conduct a full-body tick check using a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body upon return from tick-infested areas. 

Parents should check their children for ticks under the arms, in and around the ears, inside the belly button, behind the knees, between the legs, around the waist, and especially in their hair.

Examine gear and pets. Ticks can ride into the home on clothing and pets, then attach to a person later, so carefully examine pets, coats, and day packs.

Tumble clothes in a dryer on high heat for an hour to kill remaining ticks. (Some research suggests that shorter drying times may also be effective, particularly if the clothing is not wet.)
