Concussions

Return to Learn Protocol – Students who sustain a concussion and return to school may need informal or formal accommodations, modifications of curriculum, and monitoring by medical or academic staff until the student is fully recovered.

The Elkhorn Public Schools adopts the NDE Guidance entitled “Bridging the Gap from Concussion to the Classroom,” and accompanying Appendix, as its return to learn protocol, with the recognition that each student who has sustained a concussion will require an individualized response.
