An Emergency Permission form is required for any off season conditioning and to try out for any sport. The blue card can be found in the main office or the activities office. Once filled out, the form should be returned to the athlete's coach, prior to commencing in any activity.
Face to Face Concussion Training Presentations
All high schools are required to provide Concussion Presentations for parents and students according to PWCS Policy 759. As there are sufficient differences in the way concussions will be handled at the middle school and high school levels, a parent having children in both middle and high schools are required to attend both a middle and a high school presentation.
Please click blue link above for high school presentation times.
On-Line Concussion Training. Virginia Code 22.1-271.5 requires all student-athletes and their parent/guardian to complete a concussion education program every year. The PWCS On-Line Concussion Training course is designed to be compliant with Virginia Code 22.1-271.5. Parents and students who have already attended a face-to-face training may take this year’s mandatory concussion training online. It is to be completed with parent/guardian and student TOGETHER. Once complete, print completion certificate, have parent/guardian sign, then turn in hard copy to Ms Shanks (FPHS certified athletic trainer) - you may turn this in to the activities office to be put in her mailbox. NO electronic submissions will be accepted.
PLEASE do not wait until the last minute (the day/night before try-outs) to complete the training, as it will overload the system and you will have trouble completing the training. You can access the online concussion training by clicking the blue link above.

Briefly stated, the following excerpts from Regulation 721-2 describe possible impact if a student transfers from one school to another:
- Once a student establishes eligibility in a high school, any additional transfer requests for designated site programs shall not be considered for a waiver and the student shall be ineligible for 365 days from the date of the transfer.
- Students who enter the ninth grade through residence or acceptance into a designated site program will establish Virginia High School League (VHSL) eligibility at the school.
- Once a student establishes eligibility at a high school and the student transfers to another high school for any reason, the student shall be ineligible for 365 days unless there is a corresponding change of address in accordance with the VHSL
