Sports Physicals

Good Afternoon Tawas Families! While we are still conducting interviews for our new Athletic Director, we would like to put out the reminder that you WILL need a physical for sports this year. Last year we did accept waivers with all the restrictions but with everything being lifted that is not the case this year. Please be sure have those physicals completed before the sport of your choice begins!! Enjoy the rest of your summer! Go Braves!
