1. We do have an updated version of concussion education. We are working to get to a new online version, but in the meantime we are going to paper. Once the online program is available, we will no longer accept the paper version. We anticipate this happening sometime in September. I have attached the PDF of what we are currently using. Students and their parents will read through the PDF, print the last page, sign it and turn it into the athletic training box in the activities office or to me. We need one per student.
