PRIVIT (high school and middle school students)
The LSR7 School District is using the MSHSAA’s digital standard for the Pre-Participation physical exam process called PRIVIT profile. The online system links families, schools, and coaches by storing student activity and athletic information. This system, called PRIVIT, will allow parents/guardians to enter student Annual Pre-Participation Health Information, roll the information over from year to year and will simplify the process of completing the student’s annual pre-participation forms. The 2-year Physical Examination Form that the physician fills out will need to be scanned and uploaded into the student’s PRIVIT profile every two years. PRIVIT also allows coaches/sponsors and trainers to access vital student information in a timely manner. Links to PRIVIT are below. You must use the link for the school you will attend.
The LSR7 high schools offer a variety of camps during the summer for grades K-12th. All high school students and incoming 9th graders must have a physical on file in PRIVIT to participate. All incoming 8th graders must reside in the attendance area for any high school camps they attend for eligibility reasons. During the school year cheer, dance, and baseball will offer camps also. Please view the below links for these exciting opportunities!
The LSR7 Schools District takes appropriate measures to ensure the safety of all students, unfortunately accidents sometimes occurs. The District does not directly sell or offer accident, health, or dental insurance to students. However, the District has selected HSR, Health Special Risk, Inc. to offer student insurance programs. Various plans and options are offered through the company. The company maintains a separate website to allow for online enrollment. To enroll in the student insurance program, please call 866-409-5733.
