Concussion Resources

In the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board we realize the important role that all stakeholders, including parents, play in the prevention of concussion, identification of a suspected concussion as well as the ongoing monitoring and management of a student with a concussion.

Knowledge of how to properly manage a diagnosed concussion is critical in a student’s recovery and is essential in helping to prevent the student from returning to learning or physical activities too soon and risking further complications. Ultimately, this awareness and knowledge could help contribute to the student’s long-term health and academic success.

The following resources are designed to assist you in better understanding concussions and how to effectively deal with them:

Concussion Management and Return to Learn Video

Concussion information from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care

Resources from Parachute Canada

KPR Program Safety Guideline for Concussions

KPR also supports Rowan’s Law Day, which focuses on concussion awareness and prevention. Here are some of the resources we use.
