Concussion Protocol

Results of Medical Examination

In the event of a head injury, school staff will use a quick reference tool (at the time of incident) to help identify a suspected concussion and to communicate this information to a parent/guardian. However, concussion symptoms can occur later within a 24 hour period. Therefore, the C3 - Documentation of Monitoring/Medical Examination Form must be signed and returned after the 24 hour monitoring period/medical examination upon your child's return.

Diagnosed Concussion?

If your child has been diagnosed with a concussion, the C4 - Documentation for a Diagnosed Concussion form should be used by parents/guardians to communicate the child’s progress through the plan.

Further concussion protocol information and resources can be found HERE.

What immunizations (shots, vaccines, needles) does your child need for school?

​Report your child's immunization records
