As you may be aware, sports related concussions are on the rise at an alarming rate. A sports concussion should be taken seriously. This condition most often results from hitting your head on the ground or a hard object or hitting another player while playing a contact sport. Kids who experience a concussion can have headaches, dizziness, vomiting or nausea.
The Keene School Board recognizes that the majority of concussions will occur in "contact" or "collision" sports. So, I wanted to give you some information on concussions and let you know that annually, the coaches at Keene Middle School are trained on the management of head injuries and concussions. Also, if your child has a concussion, please notify me or have your child bring me the doctor's note. We are mindful that a concussion may affect your child's ability to learn so I will notify your child's teachers if he/she has a concussion.
