•      In order to protect an athlete who has sustained an injury during either a school sanctioned event or participation in an out-of-school activity, return to play involves a strict progression through a full rehabilitation protocol with the end goal of becoming asymptomatic and fully healed.  There are many risks from premature return to play following a concussion, damage to muscle or bone, lacerations involving stiches, or other injuries. 

         To this end, the Clarkstown Central School District reserves the right to contact a student’s physician to discuss Return to Play protocol and that the Coordinator of Health Services in conjunction with the District Medical Director will make the final determination as to when a student athlete will be permitted to return to play.
