A student who experiences a head injury at school will be monitored by the nurse in the health office. If the student does not exhibit signs or symptoms of concussion then the student may return to class. The parent or guardian will be notified.
If a student develops signs or symptoms of a concussion after a head injury, the parent or guardian will be notified so follow up with the primary care provider can occur as soon as possible. The student will need to provide a note from the doctor addressing when they can return to school and when the child may return to physical education class/recess. The student may not return to school without this note.
All students who experience a head injury involving loss of consciousness will be transported to the emergency room immediately for evaluation.
*Please be aware that the school does not conduct “Return to Play Protocols.”
