As many of you probably already know there has been a heightened awareness of concussions in athletic competition. A year ago the IHSAA and the IGHSAU directed sch001~ tO foll0w~ a protocol in resards to athletes who may have suffered or showed signs of suffering a concussion during competition. The protocol forbids student athletes from returning to practice or competition until they were cleared 'by the school's designated "Licensed health care provider" and in Norwalk's protocol that designated health care provider was the school's athletic trainer who then ma~kes the determination of returning to play. However, a return to play was also recognized if there was clearance given by the athlete's family practitioner after a consultation with that license.d physician. Due to state legislation that will go into effect starting July 1, school are now not only required to follow this protocol but must also pro- vide and keep Of 1 file a concussion fact sheet that both the parent and the sfudent- athlete must sign before they are allowed to practice or partidpate in competition. This inforrnatiorfal fact sheet will be distributed to all Norwalk athletes who:plan to participate in a~y athletic, dance, or cheer program this year and we would ask that this informational fact sheet be signed and returned by the parent and the athlete well in advance of their season of participation. Als0, as a reminder all physicals must be up-to-date and on file in the Athletic / Activities Office before students are allowed to participate in any sports program as well as dance and cheerleading.
