As per House Bill 204 the Legislature recognizes that participation in athletics presents a possibility for concussions and head injuries. Weber School District fully supports the protection of athletes with head injuries in accordance with the Utah Health Code. In the event of a head injury, policy states that the child will be removed from play until he/she has been medically cleared by a qualified health care professional to return to play. As a parent of a child participating in Weber School District extra-curricular activities please take time to review the free course developed by the National Federation of High Schools that is available on-line (www.nfhslearn.com) and is an excellent resource on concussion management. The 20 minute course provides education and instruction for parents and students regarding concussions and the actions to take when a concussion occurs. Please read the information available from the state office of education on Management of Sports-Related Concussions. (https://www.schools.utah.gov/file/bf4e64fe-db6d-43d8-9945-7bcfc9edd4d6)
