If your son or daughter is planning to participate in interscholastic athletics next school year at Urbandale High School or Urbandale Middle School, please know that Iowa Code requires that:
“Every year each student (grades 7-12) shall present to the student’s superintendent a certificate signed by a licensed physician and surgeon, osteopathic physician and surgeon, osteopath, advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP), physician’s assistant or qualified doctor of chiropractic, to the effect that the student has been examined and may safely engage in athletic competition. This certificate of physical examination is valid for the purposes of this rule for one (1) calendar year. A grace period, not to exceed thirty (30) days, is allowed for expired certifications of physical examination.”
Please help us make your student’s transition into their sport worry free by planning ahead and using the recommended Physical Examination form that may be found at:
This information may be turned in to the Activities Office, located off the east parking lot at Urbandale High School. The Activities Office is open daily throughout the year from 8:00am – 4:30pm.
