OU/BOCES - O'Neill Game Schedules 

    Medical Forms:  To play a sport you must have a valid physical on file with the school nurse, Rita Figueira.  Forms are available here.

    (Per Nurse Figueira - please download the Health Examination form and the Health History form.  The Health History form must be filled out prior to your physical.  Please bring both forms with you the day of the physicals at O'Neill.)  Please note: Due to Covid-19, this year families MUST fill out and sign the Health History form each season.  See the school nurse for details.

    Attention Winter Sport Athletes and Families: 

    Because of the unusual circumstances of this winter's athletic season, we have modified the Academic Eligibility policy for the duration of the winter season or until the midpoint of the third quarter, whichever comes first. The following video explains the requirements of the modified policy for any winter sport student athlete who has failed a course for the 2nd marking period. You can watch the video at the following link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HIjb-u5v--08xg2GHwdZpDPG5XhylAms/view?usp=sharing . The attached also has a printed version of the policy.

    Once the mid-quarter grades are published for quarter 3, the original eligibility policy will go back into effect for all athletes moving forward. See the high school website for details on that policy.
    In addition, we want to remind families of athletes in high risk sports that the required daily COVID testing will begin on Monday, February 8 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in the O'Neill auditorium. Families MUST complete the Horizon registration documents at the following link https://www.horizonfamilymedical.com/schoolforms. Athletes must report to the auditorium in order to get tested each day.
