The Hewitt School recognizes that concussions and head injuries are commonly reported injuries in children and adolescents who participate in sports and recreational activity and that these injuries can have serious consequences if not managed carefully. Hewitt's Concussion Management Policy outlines how we support the proper evaluation and management of head injuries.
For more information on concussions, Hewitt's concussion management team encourages families to review the following resources:
- Concussions: The Invisible Injury via the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA)
- Concussion Information Sheet via the CDC's HEADS UP program
