Concussion Guidelines and Procedures for Faculty & Coaches
The issues of concussion awareness and management of head injuries continue to take center stage in athletic medicine.
As we all strive to do what’s best for the students in our community, and so we may better align ourselves with schools in and around New England (both public and private), Lawrence Academy asks that you read and complete the on-line concussion education program: "Concussion in Sports - What You Need to Know".
This on-line course is offered through the National Federation of State High School Associations, is free of charge, and will take you less than 30 minutes to complete from the start of registration.
Once you have completed this course, please follow the instructions so that we can verify completion. Feel free to contact Frank Mastrangelo in the Athletic Training office with any questions.
- All coaches and faculty members must familiarize themselves with the signs and symptoms of concussion by completing the NFHS Online Concussion Education Program.
- Any coach that thinks a player may be exhibiting signs and symptoms of a concussion must report it to the athletic trainer or school nurse. A concussed or potentially concussed student-athlete should not be left alone until evaluated by a medical professional.
