Such disclosure will be made when a student registers on the FAMILY ID website - they also provide a link to the course.

Bishop Feehan Athletics are governed by the rules and policies of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (M.I.A.A.) and those of the school as they are published and from time to time posted or announced.

Evaluation and Treatment

Should that evaluation suggest that the student-athlete has sustained a concussion the individual must not be allowed to return to play and must be referred to a physician for further evaluation and treatment.  Should that evaluation determine that the individual has suffered a concussion; a course of treatment including a progressive rehabilitation regime must be completed before a return to play.  Certification of return to play signed by physician must precede such return.  Such certification must be endorsed by the trainer to allow this return to play.
