February 3rd, 2017

All 12 Howard County public high schools recently received the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School Award for their Sports Medicine Programs. This is the second time HCPSS high schools have been awarded this honor. In 2014, HCPSS was the first school system in Maryland to have all of its high schools win the award. The award recognizes secondary schools that provide safe environments for student athletes.

“Student safety is our highest priority,” said Superintendent Dr. Renee A. Foose. “This award reinforces our dedication to providing the best level of care, injury prevention and treatment to our student athletes.”

To achieve Safe Sport School status, the athletic programs must meet the following requirements:

The 12 HCPSS high schools are: Atholton, Centennial, Glenelg, Hammond, Howard, Long Reach, Oakland Mills, Marriotts Ridge, Mt. Hebron, Reservoir, River Hill and Wilde Lake.
