Concussion Information

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth.

Health care professionals may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.

For more information, visit the CDC's website about concussions: Injury Prevention & ControlTraumatic Brain Injury

All students in grades 7-12 who participate in extracurricular interscholastic activities must read and sign the concussion form before they are allowed to practice or compete.
