NEWS FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Spring Ahead

We have certainly had one of the toughest winters that I can recall.  It is a rare school year in which we are forced to cancel school fifteen times.  So that you understand where we are with our calendar, originally our last student day was May 30, 2014.  Because we missed fifteen days of school, our last student day will be June 4, 2014. We were able to do this because the IDOE granted a waiver for three days, we were allowed to use three days as eLearning Days, Maconaquah Schools’ Board of Education approved the use of the first week of our two-week Spring Break as five make-up days, which leaves three days to be made up in June, 2014.

    SPORTS PHYSICAL INFORMATION

    Attention Maconaquah  Athletes,

    Due to a shortage of Health Care Providers in the area this year, the Maconaquah School Corporation will not be offering physicals for the upcoming 2014-15 school year on campus.  Three local providers, two in Kokomo and the other in Peru, are offering physicals for any area students at a reduced rate.  These rates are the same year-round, and you may be able to better fit them into your schedule, as long as the exam is completed in a prompt fashion.  Remember, you MUST have a new physical on file by the first day of school in order to participate in fall sports.

    If cost is an issue, or you cannot use your regular physician, the providers we are informing you about will charge from $20 to $40 for the school physicals at their locations. That is considerably less for a physical than with most independent physicians. RediMed at Dukes (765-475-2316) will provide their services Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 5 PM, and Saturdays, from 10 AM to 2 PM, for a $40 fee.   Med One in Kokomo is located on 186 E. Southway Blvd. (765-2368299), and they will also provide this service for our students on a walk-in basis.  Their hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 8 PM, and Saturdays and Sundays, from 8 AM to 5 PM. They will charge a $30 fee. Finally, Med Express, on US 31, next to White Castle, will offer student athletic physicals for $20.  They are open 7 days a week, from 9 AM to 9 PM, and no appointment is necessary. Their number is 765-457-4370.  

    Finally, remember that you MUST use one of the Maconaquah Physical Packets when you go for your physical.  If you will be an incoming freshman at the high school, you must have a high school form.  Likewise, if you are an incoming 6th grader, you must have a middle school physical packet. These must be filled out completely for the student/athlete to play.  Forms are available at the high school and middle school.
