FREE Sports Physical Information/INFORMACIÓN Física Deportes GRATIS

Attention Skinner Athletes: To reduce the amount of time student-athletes are out of class, athletic physicals will NOT be taking place at Skinner this year. Instead, Skinner is partnering with the Denver Health Clinics at North High School and Lake Middle School to provide FREE athletic physicals and any other health needs.

The Denver Health School-Based Health Clinics at both North HS and Lake MS are open M-F 7:30-4pm. Students will not have to pay co-pays, deductibles, or fees to be seen. Appointments are not necessary (but encouraged if possible) and Skinner students (grade 6+) may be seen without a parent/guardian present but they WILL need a signed consent form (see forms below).  More information on health center locations can be found on the Denver Health School-Based Health Clinics locations page. For students who live on the far-eastern side of Highlands/Sunnyside, Denver Health clinic at La Casa/Quigg Newton can also provide physicals.
