The Ritenour School District requests that students have a physical examination before entering kindergarten, third grade, sixth grade and ninth grade. Students new to the district should have a physical exam prior to their first day of school. Students who participate in high school athletics, cheerleading, Rhythmettes, flag corps, marching band and Powderpuff (players, coaches and cheerleaders) activities are required to have yearly physicals, and they must be submitted prior to the first practice. Physicals obtained from the family doctor after Feb. 1, are valid for the next school year. Interscholastic consent forms (including physical exam form) must be obtained from the secretary in the Athletics/Activities Office at (314) 493-6135. Students must attend a specified number of practices prior to playing in their first game.
