Concussions & ImPACT Testing

Baseline ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) will be conducted during fall preseason sports. Baseline ImPACT is critical for each and every Holton-Arms student. In the unfortunate event of a student sustaining a head injury, the ImPACT assessment is one of many key tools needed to help determine how the student should be treated and what accommodations will be needed for that student.

Each parent gave their consent as part of the 2019-2020 contract. You can also read the School's Concussion Policy and the Concussion Fact Sheet.

ImPACT Testing for Fall Athletes

Grade 11: August 21 from 11:15 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Eacho Lecture Hall

(Students must bring their laptops; new students will be provided with a laptop for the test.)

Grade 9: August 22  from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Eacho Lecture Hall

(Students must bring their laptops. Laptops will be provided if they do not have one already set up by the school.)

We hope all freshmen can attend prior to the start of the school. We have added a weight room orientation during preseason for freshmen so that they are able to use the weight room safely since they are not required to take Fundamentals of Physical Education in their freshmen year. This will give students the ability to use the weight room before completing the Fundamentals class.

If you know your daughter will be unable to attend the baseline testing and orientation, there will be a make-up date at the beginning of the school year.
