    Head Injury (Concussion) Protocol:

    • All athletes will undergo a pre-participation baseline assessment at the start of the academic year.  The tests used are ImPACT or the SCAT-5.

    • In the event of a head injury during sports, the student will be sidelined and evaluated by our athletic trainer or coaches. Depending on the severity of symptoms, the athletic trainer or coach will recommend either an immediate emergency room visit or an evaluation by your child’s medical provider.

    • Once suspected to have a concussion by the school personnel, the student will not be allowed to participate in any sports or physical activity at the school until:

      • The completion of a repeat SCAT-5 or ImPACT test shows a return to baseline within the neurologic and cognitive parameters. Such tests will be performed by the school Athletic Trainer and School Nurse.

      • The above letter from PCP and repeat tests will be discussed with our School Physician before a final decision is made concerning the initiation of the “Return To Play Protocol Following Concussion” (a 6-day process). The School Physician may ask to personally evaluate your child in case the athletic trainer or school nurse has additional concerns.

      • The student will return to full activity (Phys. Ed. classes and sports) upon the successful completion of the “Return To Play Protocol Following Concussion (the 6-day process)”

      • In case your child does not have a primary care physician, an alternative would be the Urgent Care Centers in Wellsville or Hornell.

      • Please note, that your child’s PCP will not be able to bypass the above procedure that is mandated by the State. An “immediate return to sports” letter from your child’s PCP cannot be accepted. Your child’s PCP can help us hasten the process by:
