March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!

Each week in March, Health Services is providing a different piece of information regarding concussions in an effort to increase awareness, improve sign/symptom identification, address post-concussion care, and promote risk reduction. Information and statistics compiled by the Centers for Disease Control at: https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/pdfs/schools/tbi_factsheets_parents-508-a.pdf

           

 

Week 1

What is a concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even what seems to be a mild bump to the head can result in a concussion. Concussions can have a more serious effect on a young, developing brain and need to be addressed correctly.

 

Medical providers may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, the effects of a concussion can be serious and long term damage is a risk, especially if a second concussion is experienced before the brain has had time to heal.

 

Children and teens are among those at greatest risk for concussion. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the USA the leading causes of TBI are: falls 28% (most commonly affecting children aged up to 4 years and adults over 75 years) and motor vehicle accidents 20% (highest among people aged 15 to 19 years).

Harper Athletics – If your student wants to participate in Track and Field in April and has already turned in a Physical Form for another sport earlier in the year they do not need a second form. They need to sign up for soccer on the Harper Athletics webpage. Sign up for Track & Field here. Students must have a physical form on file before they can participate. Track & Field, it will begin April 9th. We will put an announcement in the Daily Bulletin when Track & Field is closer to beginning.
