Concussion Management

Groesbeck ISD takes head injuries and concussions very seriously. If you suspect your child has sustained a concussion and has not been seen by the athletic trainer or a doctor, please have them come to our office before school at 7:45 a.m. We have take home handouts and information that we can send with your athlete to better inform each and every athlete and parent.

 

Any athlete who exhibits signs or symptoms of a concussion, or has abnormal cognitive testing, will be removed from participation and will not be allowed to return to play. “When in doubt, hold them out!”
