Legislation went into effect August, 2012 regarding all students (not just athletes) who sustain a concussion while participating in any activity.
    The district has a policy that addresses any student that sustains a concussion on or off school grounds.  All concussions must be reported to the health office.  Students must submit a doctors note with the diagnosis and any restrictions or accommodations that need to be made.  Teachers and the PE department are notified of the injury.  All students must remain in the health office for recess, lunch recess and gym.  
    Once the student submits a doctor's note that states he/she is cleared to return to full activity, the "Return to Play Protocol" is started by the PE teacher.  This is a gradual return to activity as dictated by the district policy.
