Concussion (outside of school hours)

Posted February 3, 2019

A concussion is a type of brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works.  It can affect a student’s performance in both school work and physical activities.  Rest is very important after a concussion because it helps the brain heal.  While a child has a suspected or diagnosed concussion, full participation in school academic and physical activities can worsen symptoms and make for a longer recovery period.  In the best interest of your child, parents and guardians are requested to contact the principal when a suspected or diagnosed concussion occurs outside of school hours (i.e. during outdoor play, sports, or a car accident). The principal or vice principal will work with you to develop a plan for an individualized, gradual return to full participation in school activities.  For more information, visit
