In light of the heightened sensitivity to head injuries, particularly concussions, and the potential need for accommodations and/or long term complications, SCPA is instituting the following guidelines:
- Documentation of a concussion must be made by a healthcare provider and the documentation needs to be submitted directly to the Health Office by the parent or via fax to 651-395-5901 ATTN: Health Office.
- Accommodations cannot be made without said documentation.
- documentation of a concussion should include a return to school/play plan from the healthcare provider OR documentation of clearance will be needed (for example, if healthcare provider writes “No PE or recess” and does not include steps to return to PE/recess then a separate note indicating student can return to PE and recess will be needed).
If you have questions, please contact SCPA licensed school nurse, Candace Westlund
