Concussion Policy

Our concussion policy encompass education, baseline testing, and returning our students back to the classroom and sport. We feel all of these components are essential to the health and safety of our student-athletes.

Concussion Return to Learn

 

Once a student is diagnosed with a concussion, he or she is monitored closely by the head athletic trainer, who is the liaison between the student and the teachers. Our Return to Learn program was designed in an effort to simplify and clarify expectations of the student, parents, and teachers and aid in reducing the anxiety involved with a concussion recovery.

Concussion Return to Play

Once a student has returned to full academics, then he/she begins our Return to Play protocol. This is a gradual five-step process to ensure a safe return to sport. Each step is performed on a separate day, so the student will return no sooner than five days after his/her first symptom-free day.

All questions regarding the Concussion Policy should be directed to the athletic trainers.
