This e-mail contains important information for students interested in participating in sports at Council Rock South in the spring of 2020. We now use ATS, the on-line software program that allows students, parents, and coaches to log in check on the athletes file. It is preferred that Physical paperwork is submitted online via the ATS Portal. We do not accept paper copies of Appendix 1-5, or a recertification form. These MUST be done via ATS.
Please do not hand any paperwork into a coach, teacher, counselor, or nurse. Please also do not mail any paperwork to the school. These will all not be accepted. If you have to hand in Section 6, please hand it personally to the athletic trainer or someone in the athletic office.
****First time users can find a YouTube tutorial here https://youtu.be/RYK0PaygKAc
****Please be sure to view this tutorial prior to completing your portal. ****
At the bottom of this e-mail you should find your username and password. Please click on the following link to login: http://crsd2.atsusers.com
For security reasons, all passwords were reset at the end of this sports season. There is no longer one generic password for parents. The GENERAL tab is for information about the STUDENT ATHLETE. The emergency tab is where the parent information should be.
****PLEASE NOTE**** We have tied the ATS system to the information that is in the HAC system. The information will be updated nightly. If you see information that is incorrect or out of date in ATS, DO NOT attempt to correct it in the ATS system, it will be overwritten during the update. To correct information please log in to the HAC system (https://hac.crsd.org/
HomeAccess) and make updates there or contact Central Registration (Registration@crsd.org) to make updates.
This system allows the student to log in and request an evaluation appointment for an injury, or simply to report that they were injured. This information will allow me to get in touch with them about these things.
***Please have your student login and look around the system. Their username is their CRSD student ID number, password is CRS_1, unless they have already changed it when completing the portal for a fall sport. If the password has been changed already for a fall or winter sport, the default (CRS_1) will no longer work. The NEW, CHANGED password must be used. If this is the first time in ATS this school year, once you are in the system, you can change their password.
To fill out the physical packet click on the “Forms” tab. There are 5 forms that need to be completed and submitted.
PIAA SECTION 2: CERTIFICATION OF PARENT/GUARDIAN
PIAA SECTION 3: UNDERSTANDING OF RISK OF CONCUSSION AND TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
PIAA SECTION 4: UNDERSTANDING OF SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST SYMPTOMS AND WARNING SIGNS
PIAA SECTION 5: HEALTH HISTORY
Under the “eFiles” tab you will find PIAA Section 6. Please print it out and take it to your physician. If you have a scanner, you may upload the signed page directly into the athlete record.
****UNIFIED TRACK is now a sport offering for CR South student athletes. If your child will be participating in UNIFIED TRACK (only), you will need to also complete Section 6a and the 2 other required forms from the Special Olympics. These forms can be obtained by the team sponsor/coach. When in ATS, please be sure to correctly select COED UNIFIED TRACK as your spring sport selection****
We DO NOT ACCEPT any other Physical Form other than the Section 6 – PIAA CIPPE Form that is located under the “efiles” tab. Pennsylvania Department of Health School Physical Forms are NOT ACCEPTED.
If your child is not due for a physical until after March 2, 2020 due to insurance reasons, please be aware that your child WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE until a physical form is completed and uploaded to ATS. The PIAA and CRSD cannot allow any student to participate in ANY ACTIVITY until a valid, current physical is completed and on file. All physicals completed for a 2018-2019 sport are no longer valid after June 1, 2019.
PLEASE ENSURE ALL PHYSICAL FORMS ARE DATED BY THE MEDICAL PROVIDER!
Please do not include immunizations, allergy action plans, or other ancillary paperwork in the ATS portal. All of these papers MUST go to the nurse’s office directly.
***Please note: many physicians wish to review Section 5 “Health History”, you should print a copy after you complete it to give to your physician at the physical. Also once you upload the form it will show up on the uploaded, list but will not show as checked off under paperwork until myself or an athletic department representative visually verifies the page.***
