Concussions & Head Injuries

  • Students who have experienced a force of impact believed to have caused a concussion may not participate in:

    • athletic practices,
    • competition,
    • physical education class,
    • recess,
    • 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 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.

    Student athletes and their parents/guardians must sign the Agreement to Participate before the student is allowed to participate in a practice or interscholastic competition.
