Reporting Non-School Related Concussions:
Research indicates that a concussion can affect a student’s school performance in both cognitive activities (school work) and physical activities (physical education program/interschool activities). Research also indicates that engaging in cognitive and /or physical activities, while a child has a suspected and/or diagnosed concussion, can worsen concussion symptoms and make for a longer recovery period. In the best interest of your child, parent/guardians are requested to communicate with the school principal, prior to the students attendance at school, whenever there is a suspected or diagnosed concussion that occurs off school site e.g. at home or at a sporting activity. It is with this communication of information that the school, in consultation with parents/guardians, can immediately begin the board/school concussion protocol with the child.
