• Concussion Program

    Students who report that they do not feel well after a head injury or those who report signs and symptoms of a head injury may have experienced a concussion.  Symptoms may develop after what appears to be a simple bump to the head.  Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these signs and symptoms may show up immediately or up to several days later.  Closely monitor your child and consult with your primary care provider.  If head injury signs and/or symptoms increase, please immediately consult with your physician or an emergency room.

    If a student is suspected of incurring a head injury during the school day or during an interscholastic practice or competition, the parents/guardians will be notified.  If a student incurs a head injury outside of school hours or activities, it will be beneficial if the health office is notified of the injury.  Should your student be diagnosed with a concussion, follow the instructions of your medical provider.  Nursing personnel are available to assist you with your student's return to school following an injury.
