S.M.U.H.S.D. ATHLETIC POLICY 2015-16
All student athletes will be required to be completely cleared through the health office to participate in any summer athletic practices or workouts.
A new S.M.U.H.S.D. athletic packet must be submitted and on file with our Health Aide before a student will be allowed to participate. Once this happens, the new yellow card will be signed, stamped, and returned to the student. All students must present their coach with a current and valid yellow card in order to participate.
Any student without the proper clearances will not be allowed to participate...no exceptions! The S.M.U.H.S.D. athletic packet can be picked up at the BHS health office or downloaded on the district website at www.smuhsd.org.
The BHS Health Aide will be on campus daily during normal school hours until 6/2/15. She will also be available every Tuesday & Thursday throughout June and July 2nd from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm to assist with clearing student athletes. Only yellow cards signed and stamped after 5/1/2015 will cover the athlete for the 2015-16 school year. Please direct any questions to athletic director John Philipopoulos at 650-558-2899 x5470 or firstname.lastname@example.org
STEP 1 – pick up or download new SMUHSD athletic packet
STEP 2 – return completed new packet to health office
STEP 3 – receive stamped and signed yellow card from health office
STEP 4 – present new yellow card to your coach
* Please note that all physicals are good for one calendar year. Even with the new packets on file by the end of the school year, many physicals will expire during the summer months and beyond. Once the physical expires, the athlete is no longer cleared and will need to submit proof of an updated physical to our Health Aide. She will then issue a form to the student to give to the coach to show that the physical has been updated.

BHS Athletic Participation Report: 2014-15
We are proud to say that 56.5% of the students at Burlingame High School participated in our Athletics programs during the 2014-15 school year.
We currently host 52 different teams - including all freshman, JV, and Varsity teams. Our programs are robust and diverse, include 23 female teams, 22 male teams, and 7 mixed gender teams, divided amongst the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons.
Athletics can be a wonderful way for students to connect on campuses, and, while there can be a perception that high school sports are often dominated by our upperclassmen, we offer many opportunities for our underclassmen to participate. In fact, the largest group of athletic participants at Burlingame High School are our 9th and 10th grade students: our freshman girls dominate our athletic landscape in the Fall and Winter seasons, and our sophomore girls take the lead as the largest participating group during the Spring season.
