Ossining Athletics Department

Concussion Information, Policies and Forms

In the Ossining Union Free School District, students participate in interscholastic activities, physical education classes and extracurricular or school sponsored activities. Although the Board of Education of the District takes reasonable care to prevent student injuries, the Board of Education recognizes that concussions and head injuries are commonly reported injuries in children and adolescents, who participate in the aforementioned activities.

Parents and students must be aware that no helmet can guarantee the prevention of serious injury to the head or neck. To this end, the District has adopted the following policy and guidelines to aid in the proper evaluation and management of concussions and head injuries.
