Athletic Registration for Physicals

Cobb county schools including Pope HS is implementing a new process for athletes who need a physical exam.  The new process involves parents logging into their ParentVue account (not StudentVue). Once logged in, parents follow six simple steps to give consent for athletics, provide insurance information, complete the medical history for the student-athlete, upload the physical exam after it is completed by a medical professional, and finally submit to the school's athletic department.  Parents will need a ParentVue account to complete this process. This process does require more time to complete, so please do not expect your student-athlete to be able to participate if the process has not been completed or was submitted "last minute."  The process can be started before the medical exam is scheduled/completed.  If you need a hard copy of the medical exam form, they are available at the front office on yellow paper (forms can also be downloaded and printed in step 4 of the process).  For questions with your ParentVue account, please contact Kim Allen (Kim.allen@cobbk12.org ). For questions about the athletic registration (physical) process (i.e.: you can access ParentVue but are having issues with the 6 step process) please contact athletic secretary, Terry Vorobel (terry.vorobel@cobk12.org ).

SPLOST & Roundabout Update

Lots of changes happening on campus this summer. We still have several activities planned for the campus during construction and it is IMPERATIVE that no one is to be in any construction or unauthorized area on campus…..The contractors are up against a tight deadline and they need our help to make sure no one is in their way or in an unsafe area.

Plan for indoor events this summer:

Please have participants meet at the front doors of the school on Main Street….ALL entrance should be made here….

Construction Update June 13:

The 300, 400, 500, 600, 700 halls are closed due to reflooring….

We are taking everyone all the way down Main Street and out the back door to go to either the practice field, weight training, band practice, or basketball camp/practice….

Basketball camp/practice will enter gym through the back gym lobby doors near the concession stand---they will go all the way down the back hall and outside….

 Weight training will go out the back hall doors by the wrestling room and through the construction fence gate (please close behind you) and up the hill to the weights area…..Return the same way!

Track and Stadium will be closed all summer due to extensive track repairs and resurfacing….new jump lanes/pits have been completed on the north end of the stadium….
