Due to the impact the weather has had on scheduled concussion training meetings the following information will guide parents, students, and staff in meeting the requirement for annual concussion training for interscholastic athletes:
All athletes and parents that have not met the annual concussion training requirement for spring sports will have until Friday, February 27, to complete the required training at a Face to Face session, or through the online training available on the PWCS website.
Face to Face training for 9th grade students will be offered at the following school sites on Monday, February 23:
Forest Park HS at 7:00 pm
Brentsville HS at 7:00 pm
Hylton HS at 7:00 pm
Stonewall Jackson HS at 6:00 pm
We will update the above list if we are able to offer any additional Face to Face sessions.
For the high school spring sports season only, 9th grade students along with their parents, may complete the online training by Friday, February 27 as an alternative. The process has been started to remove the program restriction for 9th grade students. This process will take time to complete.
If access is rejected, be patient, try again later. Every effort is being made to prevent login and access issues. We ask all students and parents to vary the time of day over the weekend to access the site. This will help to prevent login issues. Be sure to have the correct student ID number and the student’s full name for proper access.
Thank you for your patience as we work to assist you at this time.
2014-2015 Concussion Education Presentations
All schools are beginning to schedule Concussion Training sessions for all parents and students. 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 School 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.
View high school and middle school presentation schedules for the 2014-2015 school year by clicking here middle school schedule and high school schedule.
Parents and students should make note of the start time for each school's start time 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.
Students and their parent/guardian have two ways to receive this concussion training:
- Face to Face Training:
Middle school parents and students who are trying out for a sport for their first time in middle school or are new to Prince William County Public Schools, must attend a face to face concussion training at their respective school.
High school parents and students who are entering 9th grade and trying out for a sport for their first time in high school or are new to Prince William County Public schools must attend a face to face concussion training at their respective school.
- Online Training:
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. Start the online training.
