Important Announcement - Recognizing and Managing Concussions
The State of Pennsylvania has passed two new mandates that relate to the effect of Concussions and Sudden Cardiac Arrest on sports and athletics. In accordance, the PIAA has modified the 2012-13 CIPPE Physical Form that must be used for all athletic physicals. In addition, all school districts must offer a meeting prior to the beginning of each sport season for student-athletes and parents to discuss these issues. These meetings require the attendance of at least one parent/guardian and the student-athlete.
The Fall season actually requires two meetings because of the split starting dates:
- Monday, August 13th - HS Auditorium @ 6:30 - For all Varsity/JV athletes and a parent/guardian
- Wednesday, September 5th - HS Auditorium @ 6:30 - For all 9th Grade and Middle School athletes and a parent/guardian
The meeting prior to the Winter Sport Season will be held on:
- Wednesday, November 14th - HS Auditorium @ 6:30 - For all HS/MS athletes
The meeting prior to the Spring Sport Season will be held on:
- Monday, February 25th - HS Auditorium @ 6:30 - For all HS/MS athletes
Below you will find an updated Important Dates sheet for 2012-13 and a Parent/Athlete Concussion Information Sheet as provided by the CDC. Please refer to these documents for more information.
