Every aspect of athletic training services provided at M.H. S. helps to ensure that student athletes are back on the field in a timely fashion after an injury and most importantly as safely as possible.

The sports medicine team works in collaboration with the athletic department, school nurse, school MD, and local physicians. The athletic trainer evaluates all athletic injuries and determines athletic status using consultation with physicians when necessary. At the start of each season, coaches and student athletes are instructed as to appropriate use of the athletic training room facility and of proper procedure for notifying athletic trainers of injury. Injuries of an athletic nature, occurring during a school-sponsored activity (on or off campus), are strongly encouraged to be reported to the athletic trainer and coach at the time of injury or as soon as possible. If the student athlete is injured during school hours, they should report this injury to the school nurse as well
