Physicals are also offered by Houston Methodist for $25 (payable via School Cash Online) and will take place on 4/4/24 at GOHS and 4/9/24 at York.  You must bring a copy of the Physical Consent form to have your student's physical done at school, click the button below to download and print a copy.

Download the App from your phone's App Store.  You will need the Team codes to join.
