Activities/Athletics: Rules Governing School Privileges
In addition to adhering to the tenets of the MIAA academic eligibility policies, Holliston High School requires students to attain passing grades in all courses (incomplete grades are not considered to be passing grades) – using both term and final grades when available - in the term immediately preceding participation sport (for students attending an approved summer school program the final grades of program will be considered in determining eligibility for fall athletics). Eligibility for a succeeding term is determined on the day report
- Fees for participation on teams or in extracurricular clubs, etc. must be paid in full before participation begins. Only the Principal or his/her designee may grant waivers of this rule.
- Both student athletes and students involved in extracurricular activities must be present for at least 50% of a school day to be eligible for participation in that day’s event.
- Students shall not possess, use, sell, give or otherwise transmit alcohol, drugs, or drug paraphernalia or be under the influence of alcohol or any illegal drug or regulated substance, as defined in M.G. L. Chapter 94C on any school property or at any school-sponsored activity or event away from or within the school. This includes the use of any illegal drug or regulated substance prior to attendance at, or participation in, a school-sponsored activity.
- Members of the student body who are not active participants in any extracurricular activities may also be subject to suspension from attendance at school functions.
- Any student who acts in a dangerous way or brings discredit to Holliston High School may have all privileges, including attendance at school activities, suspended as determined by the school administration.

A concussion is a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) resulting from a blow, violent jarring or rotational force to the head. The injury involves an acceleration-deceleration mechanism in which a blow to the head or the head striking an object results in 1 or more of the following conditions: headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, balance problems, feeling ‘‘slowed down,’’ fatigue, trouble sleeping, drowsiness, sensitivity to light or noise, Loss Of Consciousness, blurred vision, difficulty remembering, or difficulty concentrating. Symptoms may last from several days to several months and both the presentation and length of symptoms is highly individualized.
At Holliston High School, we utilize the ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) neurocognitive test battery and formally consult with athletes' primary care doctor. Note that the ImPACT test is just one tool to assist the AT with diagnosing a concussion.
What an athlete can expect when a concussion occurs:
- Upon assessment of concussion, the student-athlete is removed from the contest and is not allowed to return under any circumstances. Assessment of concussion in made by a Certified Athletic Trainer or Physician covering the contest.
- Within 24-72 hours of concussion assessment, an initial Post-Injury ImPACT test is administered by the Athletic Trainer.
- The School Nurse is alerted in the case that academic accommodations are necessary.
- One or more RESTING Post-Injury ImPACT tests will be administered until neurocognitive scores return to baseline (if baselined for collision/contact sports) or fall into age-appropriate average range.
- The 1st benchmark the student-athlete must achieve is resolution of symptoms, at rest.
- The 2nd benchmark the student-athlete must achieve is the ability to perform light exertion, without recurrence of symptoms.
- Once benchmarks 1 and 2 have been achieved, one or more POST-EXERTION ImPACT tests may be administered.
- The 3rd benchmark the student-athlete must achieve is for neurocognitive scores to remain in normal range after Post-Exertion ImPACT testing, in combination with the absence of symptom recurrence.
- Finally, as a guiding rule, all collision/contact athletes must be at least 1 week asymptomatic before returning to potential contact.
- Student must have completed missed homework and tests in order to be eligible for return to play
- Dialogue between the Athletic Trainer, the School Nurse, the student-athlete and his/her coach is on-going throughout the concussion management process. Additional dialogue with parents, guidance counselors, pediatricians and others may be necessary. Only after all of these benchmarks have been met, will a student-athlete be able to Return to Play after sustaining a concussion.
