Dear MCHS Parent/Guardian:
The health forms required for entrance into Morris Catholic High School can be downloaded from our school website. The state of New Jersey has issued new forms. Please read carefully. Two pages are for parent/guardian to complete; two pages are for physician to complete. In addition there is an immunization form, an over the counter/prescription MEDICATION form, student accident insurance information, emergency permission and permission to share information forms all to be completed by parent/guardian.
Only physicals done on these New Jersey Department of Education Athletic Pre-participation Forms will be accepted. All students participate in some form of athletics during their years at Morris Catholic, whether interscholastic, intramural or physical education classes, THEREFORE IT IS A REQUIREMENT THAT ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL EVERY CALENDAR YEAR. SUPPLEMENTAL FORMS ARE GOOD FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR. Please do not separate pages after completion.
Immunizations must be complete, up to date, and each one recorded with the month, day and year.
