Ferndale High School believes participation in athletics improves physical fitness, coordination, self-discipline, and gives students valuable opportunities to learn important social and life skills.

With this in mind it is important that we do as much as possible to create and maintain an enjoyable and safe environment. As a parent/guardian or student you play a vital role in protecting participants and helping them get the best from sport.

Player and parental education in this area is crucial which is the reason for the Concussion Management and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness pamphlet you received. Refer to it regularly.
This form must be signed annually by the parent/guardian and student prior to participation in “Name of School / School District” athletics. If you have questions regarding any of the information provided in the pamphlet, please contact the athletic director at your school.
