One of the missions of co-curricular school activities is to serve as an extension of the classroom. There are strong lessons to be learned in athletics, speech and music. One of those lessons is to set and maintain high standards of sportsmanship, ethics and integrity in our schools and our society. It is up to us to provide the direction and constant vigilance under which good sportsmanship can prosper and have a positive impact on our children, the leaders of tomorrow and ourselves.
Interscholastic activities are intended to supplement the secondary curricular program. These activities can provide the student with educational experiences and learning outcomes that contribute toward the development of good citizenship. This can be accomplished only when the emphasis is placed upon teaching “through school activities.” Interscholastic activities can be justified only when this is its primary philosophy and purpose.
Lee’s Summit School District is using the MSHSAA’s digital standard for the Pre-Participation physical exam process called PRIVIT profile. The new online system links families, schools, and coaches by storing the student activity and athletic information. This system, called PRIVIT, will allow parents/guardians to enter student Pre-Participation Health Information for grades 9-12, roll the information over from year to year and will simplify the process of completing the student physical form. Page 2 of the Physical Form titled Physical Examination Form will need to be scanned and uploaded into the student’s profile on a yearly basis. Physicals dated on or after 2/1/18 will be good for the 2018-19 school year. PRIVIT will also allow 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 high school you will attend.
The Lee’s Summit School District 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!
