Coverage at Events

Although I do not attend all events, all of the athletes are welcome to seek out my care. M Health Fairview is contracted to provide medical coverage of these home events during the fall, winter and spring seasons. In the event of an injury, every effort is made to contact a parent or guardian. 

**Please Note: If an athlete is injured or ill and is seen by a doctor in a clinic or an emergency facility, they must bring a written note from the doctor before they can return to practice or play in a game. (Minnesota State High School League Rule Bylaw 107.00). This is for the athlete's protection as well as to keep everyone informed as to his/her readiness to participate. If you forget the note, one can be faxed to the school at 763-504- 8686.
