At or before the start of each sport or band season, all students who plan
to participate in extracurricular athletic activities must complete and submit to the athletic director a current Department of Public Health Pre-participation Form signed by both the student and the parent.
If a student sustains a head injury or concussion during the season, the DPH Report of Head Injury During a Sports Season form must be completed by 1) the coach or band director if the injury or suspected concussion occurs during a practice or game or 2) by a parent if the injury occurs outside the school setting and forwarded to the coach or band director.
Report of Sport Injury During Sports Season Form
Each student who is removed from play for a head injury or suspected concussion must obtain and give to the Athletic Director a completed DPH Post-Sports-Related Head Injury Medical Clearance and Authorization form before returning to the extracurricular athletic activity.
In accordance with the MIAA and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health all parent(s) or guardian(s) and student athletes must complete concussion awareness education. This applies to one school year and must be repeated for every subsequent year.
Please print out a certificate of completion after completing this free DPH approved online course.
