    Dear Pine-Richland Families (Grades 7-12):
     
    The Pine-Richland School District (PRSD) is partnering with Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Sports Medicine for all of its student athletic training needs. We are excited about the variety of supports and resources that AHN has been providing our student-athletes, families, and community. 
     
    Through AHN, we have been offering Healthy Roster – a free mobile website program connecting parents and coaches directly with their licensed athletic trainer to improve the quality of care and communication for our student-athletes. The app gives parents access to athletic trainers via chat, voice, or video. It also provides injury tracking and updates, guardian and parent accounts, and one overall account for multiple children. The program is Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) compliant – meaning your child’s information is secure and available only to the individuals you choose. 
    Healthy Roster App
    The Healthy Roster is being used for PRSD Athletics registration. No additional forms are necessary. Roster lists will be provided to all coaches after all forms and information have been submitted. If a student-athlete participated in fall or winter sports AND indicated an interest in a spring sport, no additional action is required.
     
    The PRSD Athletic Department is using Healthy Roster to also collect all Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA), and AHN Physical and Sports Participation paperwork for all student-athletes in grades 7-12. All forms will be available in electronic sign-off format – no printing and uploading of multiple forms. The only form you will need to print and upload will be the actual doctor’s physical (PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE) Section 6). All Sports Physical paperwork must be completed prior to the start of the spring sports season on March 8, 2021. Students only need to submit one physical form per school year.
    To begin using Healthy Roster, download the Healthy Roster app from either the App Store (iPhone users) or Google Play (Android users) and enter the code: RAMS. Once you have submitted the online form, you will receive an invitation from Healthy Roster within 3-5 business days to create your account. Please note – once you receive the invitation, you will have 24 hours to set up your account before the passcode expires. With your account, you will have access to complete your student’s PIAA Physical paperwork, which includes the following:
    1.  PIAA CIPPE – Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 (Section 2 – Please choose ALL sports your student(s) is/are interested in participating in during the school year.)
    2. AHN Sports Medicine HIPPA Form
    3. AHN Sports Medicine Consent to Treat Form
    4. PIAA CIPPE – Section 6 is the doctor’s physical form. Print this form and take it with you to the doctor’s office. Please note that the nurse’s physical paperwork is NOT the same as PIAA CIPPE Section 6 and will not be accepted for interscholastic sports participation.
    The district has also included detailed information related to Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Concussion as part of the document list. Please take time to review each of those items.
    For help completing these documents, visit the training section of the Healthy Roster website: www.healthyroster.com. You can also message the athletic trainers directly via the Healthy Roster app once your account is complete, or call them at (724) 625-4444 x6825.
     
    Please note that if you have more than one child to register - you must send the following information for each child (after the first one) to Athletic Trainer Leigh Anne Cowger at the following email address leigh.cowger@ahn.org so that it can be manually entered. You will then have access for all children in your account:
     
    ●     First Name
    ●     Last Name
    ●     Date of Birth
    ●     Graduation Year
    ●     Gender
    ●     Sport
    ●     Email address used by the parent to register the first child
     
    Once the other child (children) are entered - they will be accessible to the parent.
     
     Healthy Roster App & FAQs
     
    Q: Can I still turn in paper copies of the Sports Physical Packet to the Athletic Office?
    A: No. All paperwork must be submitted online via Healthy Roster. The PR Athletic Office, by appointment, can help you set up an account and walk you through the steps, but all paperwork must be submitted online.
     
    Q: Why can’t I fill out PIAA CIPPE – Section 6 online?
    A: PIAA CIPPE – Section 6 is the actual physical that requires a physician’s signature and cannot be completed electronically. This form must be downloaded, printed, filled out by your doctor, and then uploaded to your Healthy Roster account. Please see instructions in your Healthy Roster account.
     
    Q: Do the forms in the Sports Physical Packet need to be completed prior to voluntary off-season workouts?
    A: No. All paperwork is due prior to the first official day of practice. (Spring Sports – 3/8/2021)
     
    Q: If I have health insurance other than Highmark (i.e. UPMC, Cigna, United Healthcare, Aetna, etc.), do I need to complete the AHN HIPPA release and the AHN Consent to Treat forms?
    A: Yes. These forms are necessary for our certified athletic trainers to provide treatment and care to all student-athletes in the Pine-Richland School District.
     
    Q: Will physicals be offered at Pine-Richland?
    A: No. All physicals must be completed by your primary care physician or other medical facilities. AHN will also hold one date prior to each season located at one of their local facilities.

    Sean Simmons
