Concussions & Head Injuries
Students who experience a forceful impact believed to have caused a concussion, who are exhibiting signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion, will be removed from:
- athletic practices,
- physical education class,
- other physical activities during the school day, or
- in school-sponsored after-school activities.
The student may resume these activities after successful completion of the return-to-play protocol, in addition to a medical release from the licensed physician who has treated the student. Students exhibiting signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with a concussion after injury during activities will be immediately removed from these activities. The district’s return-to-learn protocol guides school staff on accommodations needed, including cognitive rest, for students recovering from a concussion.
Please review the CCSD15 Concussion Information Sheet | Hoja de información sobre conmociones cerebrales.
Student athletes and their parents/guardians must sign the Agreement to Participate (English / Spanish) before the student is allowed to participate in a practice or interscholastic competition.
