Middle School and High School Face to Face Concussion training dates have been posted. All rising 6th grade and 9th grade student athletes as well as student athletes new to the county are required to attend a Face to Face training.
All middle and high school student athletes and their parent/guardian are required to complete an annual Concussion Training according to Prince William County Public Schools Policy 759. As there are sufficient differences in the way concussions will be handled at the middle school and high school levels, a parent having children in both middle and high schools are required to attend both a middle and a high school presentation.
REMEMBER: Parents and students, you should make note of each school's Face to Face Training start times and plan to arrive on time to complete the entire session. Doors will be closed once the training begins. Late arriving parents and students may not be permitted in the training once it has started.
Concussion Training Options for Students and their Parents/Guardians:
Face to Face Training:
- If you are unable to attend a scheduled Face-to-Face Concussion Training, the parent and student have the option to complete an online presentation for the first time participant as a middle school student. This option will not be available until after September 2015
- If you are unable to attend a scheduled Face-to-Face Concussion Training, the parent and student have the option to complete an online presentation for the first time participant as a high school student. This option will not be available until September 2015.
Parents and students who have already attended a face to face training may take this year’s mandatory concussion training online. Rising 6th grade and 9th grade students and students new to Prince William County Public Schools are not eligible for the Online Training.
