PHYSICALS FOR BAND:
UIL and NCISD require all band students enrolled in the marching band to obtain a physical before participating in any marching band activities.
To obtain the prescreening form for Band Physicals, please go to the following link, fill out the form and submit online, and print the form :
You must complete the online form in order for your physical to be counted.
NOTE: Please be sure to select from Fine Arts, Athletics or Both on the next screen.
The Porter Band Staff STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that all students get their physical done right here at PHS! We will have the sports medicine staff from Memorial Hermann Hospital in Humble on campus to perform the physicals. The cost is ONLY $15 and needs to be paid in CASH. Getting your physical done at PHS means that the band staff will have it on file and you will be good to go for marching season. Typically, we experience a LOT of problems with students trying to get a physical done at their own doctor.
Common problems with getting the physical done somewhere other than PHS:
- Wrong forms
- Incomplete forms
- More Expensive
- Not completed on time for summer band to start
- Missing pre-screening documents
- Even if you get a free physical once per year on your insurance, there is usually a Co-Pay and scheduling a Dr.'s appointment is extremely tricky in this new Covid-19 and Vaccination environment.
Perhaps the biggest problem with getting your physical on your own is having your band directors worry all summer about whether or not it is getting done and whether or not you will be at practice on the 1st day!
