Concussion/ Head Injuries

BVSD has a concussion management​ plan to care for your child in the event they experience a concussion or other head injury - please let the school know if you child has experienced any head injury so we can support their recovery.

What is a concussion?

A concussion is a brain injury. Concussions are caused by a bump or blow to the head. Even a "ding," "getting your bell rung," or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.
You can't see a concussion. Signs and symptoms of concussion can show up right after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the injury. If your student reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical attention right away.
