Concussion Information

Zackery Lystedt Law - House Bill 1824

Any athlete who reports concussion symptoms related to any injury or force to their head will be removed from play. "When in doubt, sit them out."

Athletes removed from participation must have medical clearance to return to playing their sport. Medical clearance can come from a doctor and return to play will be done through the SKHS Certified Athletic Trainers. If your son or daughter has a head injury: please see Chris Hiatt or Jeff Spaulding.

We currently use ImPACT to baseline reaction speeds of athletes in football, soccer, wrestling, basketball, baseball, fast pitch, pole vaulters, and cheerleaders. When an athlete is injured, we use this test to compare scores and in conjunction with symptoms, will determine when they can safely return to play. This test is a tool we use, but not the deciding factor for head injuries.
