MEDICAL FORMS All forms much be uploaded to Dragonfly Max by July 1, 2022.

     

Medical clearance is very important to get prior to the start of the marching band season. Our students will be exercising and outside in the hot sun and it is important to make sure they are in the best health possible. In addition our volunteer nurses need to have our students’ medical history, allergies, and emergency medication.

We use a health form management system called Dragonfly Max (DragonFly Max Access) per FCS requirements to collect and approve forms for Cambridge band students. Some of the forms are completed electronically through Dragonfly Max and other will need to be printed for your child’s doctor to complete. Then the forms will need to be scanned and uploaded to their account.

These are the forms in Dragonfly:

  • Update Medical and Demographic Information (completed in Dragonfly Max)
  • Consent to Treatment Form (completed in Dragonfly Max)
  • FCS Transportation Release Form (completed in Dragonfly Max)
  • GHSA Medical Eligibility Form (uploaded after completed)
  • GHSA Physical Examination Form (uploaded after completed)
  • GHSA Health History Form (uploaded after completed)



NEW Marching Band MEMBERS Please watch this before proceeding: DragonFly Instructional Video
Once you have watched the video, create your Dragonfly Account: DragonFly Max Access
PLEASE ensure that as you are creating the account, you are making the account in the PARENT name and not the students. Once you have created your account you will add your student to begin uploading the form. This is all explaned in the video (again, please watch the instructional video).
