Attention parents/ guardians:
Unfortunately your child has sustained a head injury/ concussion the following packet has been put together to provide you
with all the information regarding the next steps in the concussion policy.
Pages 1-2: General information regarding concussion and the return to play process. This info packet provides a brief
overview into the symptoms of concussion and general recommendations for recovery that will be expanded upon by the
physician you see.
Page 3: The first page with the D300 logo. IHSA policy and Illinois Law mandates that each athlete treated for a concussion
must be seen by a physician. This D300 form goes to the physician visit and needs to be filled out by the physician and
returned to the nurse’s office. You are welcome to take your child to any physician of your choosing however I have listed 3

*If you decide to call one of these physicians please make sure to let them know your child is an athlete at Jacobs High School that way they can get you in the office sooner. Page 4: Our return to play protocol. This protocol is a 5-day gradual increase in activity to return the athlete to their perspective sport in a safe manner. This is not optional it is a school policy. Please bring this outline to the physician office so they know what your child will be doing once cleared to return to sport. Page 5: IHSA Return to Sport Form: Please have the athlete and parent/guardian sign the return to sport form and return it to Maddox Reed, athletic trainer so that the return to sport procedure may be initiated once given clearance by physician. Please feel free to call or email me at any time I understand this is a tough process and a scary injury please allow me to answer and questions or concerns. Thank you,

During today’s practice/game participation your student-athlete sustained a head injury that requires vital monitoring, and
presents with concussion-like symptoms. Below is a list of signs and symptoms that can occur after sustaining such an
injury. Symptoms may show up immediately following the injury or in some cases several hours later. If any of the signs
and symptoms listed below present the athlete should seek immediate medical attention. If you are questioning whether to
seek medical attention, it is recommended that you do so immediately.
The following signs and symptoms (complaints) mandate immediate emergency room evaluation:
*Headaches that significantly worsen *Looks very drowsy/can’t be awakened *Neck pain
*Can’t recognize people or places *Repeated vomiting *Seizures
*Increasing confusion or irritability *Unusual behavioral change *Focal neurologic signs
*Change in state of consciousness *Weakness or numbness in arms/legs *Slurred Speech
*Blood or watery fluid from ears or nose *Unequal or dilated pupils *Asymmetry of the face
Rest is the key. Do not participate in ANY activities if any signs or symptoms exist. Be sure to get enough sleep
at night – no late nights. Take naps or rest breaks as needed.
It is important to limit activities that require a lot of thinking or concentration (called cognitive rest), as this can
make signs and symptoms worse, which may prolong healing. This includes but is not limited to: texting,
operating a computer, watching television, playing video games and reading.
With ANY injury, a full recovery will reduce the chances of getting hurt again. Second-Impact Syndrome is
VERY serious. It is better to miss a few games than to be severely injured for your season, or indefinitely.
Consult with an athletic trainer as available, or see a physician licensed to practice medicine who is familiar with
current concussion care and management as soon as possible for proper evaluation and treatment.
Return to Participation:
As adopted from the National Federation of High School Sports recommendations: After suffering a concussion, no athlete should
return to play or practice on that same day. Newer studies have shown that the young brain does not recover quickly enough for an
athlete to return to activity in such a short time.
Remember: Please realize head injuries and the study of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI), also known as concussion, is continually evolving. ATI Physical
Therapy strives to use the most-up-to-date information. If you experience signs or symptoms that vary from the above mentioned ones err on the side of caution and
seek further medical attention from a qualified healthcare provider.
