PSD Ejection Policy for Spectators:  Any spectator affiliated with PSD schools that is ejected or removed from an athletic venue due to poor sportsmanship will be placed on probation and not allowed to return to further PSD athletic events until the following have occurred:

  1. The individual meets with the building administration to discuss future expectations for behavior.
  2. The individual completes an approved NFHS Sportsmanship course.  The course is free and is available online.  A certificate of completion must be presented to the District Athletic Director as proof of meeting this requirement.  

Repeated minor offenses or egregious acts of unsportsmanlike conduct including contact with an official, coach, staff member, opposing team members, throwing items onto court or floor, etc. will be grounds for law enforcement involvement and may be grounds for spectator to be permanently banned from all future PSD contests.

SPORTS PHYSICALS:  Does your student need a sports physical and you don't have a Primary Care Physician or are having trouble getting an appointment?  

The Health and Wellness Center at Centennial High School will be offering sports physicals/well child exams over the summer months (June - August).  Any PSD middle and high school student (and their PSD enrolled siblings) can now enroll and be seen at the Center year round.   The Center prioritizes meeting the needs of students/families who are uninsured, underinsured and/or having a difficult time accessing medical care.   The Center accepts insurance (including Medicaid and CHP+), offers a cash pay option and a sliding fee scale (for qualified families).  No child is ever turned away for inability to pay.  Se habla español!
