INJURIES OR ILLNESS REQUIRING A DOCTOR VISIT
If your daughter or son is injured and is seen by or treated by a doctor, chiropractor or at an emergency facility, they must bring a written note from the doctor before they can return to practice or play in a game. This is a Minnesota State High School League rule (Bylaw 107.00), which states, “after major surgery or serious illness or injury, the attending physician must certify in writing the student’s readiness for participation.” If you forget to get a note, you can call and ask them to fax a note to me at Eastview at (952) 431-8911 Attention: Doug Nelson.
If you would like to be seen by a doctor who specializes in sports medicine, you can call Fairview Sports & Orthopedic Care for same day/next day appointments at (952) 460-4900, Minnesota Sports Medicine (MSM) at (612) 273-4800, Orthopaedic Consultants at (952) 808-3000 or Tria Orthopaedic Center at (952) 831-8742/
