If you have any further questions about what the ImPACT cognitive assessment is, please e-mail or call Head Athletic Trainer, Ellen Malloy, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 781 664 2273. It is basically a very simple cognitive online assessment that drastically helps our Athletic Trainers more objectively measure the severity of any type of concussion to help determine when a student-athlete can safely return to play. Many other ISL and NEPSAC schools also use ImPACT.
* All medical forms must also be completed in order to participate in sports. Please e-mail or call School Nurses Kathy Cunningham at email@example.com - (781) 664 2299 or Shelly Creager at firstname.lastname@example.org - (781) 664-2463 regarding any questions related to health forms.
