The Pope Francis High School Athletic Handbook outlines the philosophy and reflects the policies of the Pope Francis Athletic Program for the current academic year.
Concussion Policy and Procedures
In accordance with 105 CMR 201.000, “Head Injuries and Concussions in Extracurricular Athletic Activities” and in conjunction with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) recommendations, Pope Francis High School aims to properly assess and treat student-athletes with suspected concussions. PFHS has established this protocol to provide education about sports-related concussions for athletic department staff, other school personnel, parents, and athletes.
Forms for Athletes and Parents
These forms must be returned to the athletic director or athletic trainer BEFORE the first day of practice. An athlete cannot play or practice without these. Forms can be mailed to Pope Francis High School, 134 Springfield Street, Chicopee, MA 01013, or returned electronically to John Goda (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Annie Lasek (email@example.com).
