Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Prevention Act
To address the rare occurrence of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in school sports, Governor Hochul signed into law the Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act to ensure that schools, students, and families are provided with important information on SCA signs, symptoms, and risks to ensure students at risk are evaluated appropriately prior to participation in athletics, and that SCA is immediately recognized and treated.
Returning to Play Sports After COVID-19 Infection
All Lansingburgh student-athletes who test positive for COVID-19 during the athletic season must be cleared by an outside healthcare provider before returning to play. This is a requirement for all student-athletes who test positive, even if COVID-19 symptoms are minor. Below you can find the district's 2022-23 Return to Play Guidelines and the Release Form for Return to Play that must be filled out by an outside healthcare provider. If you have any questions about Return to Play, please contact the district's Medical Director, Matthew Hickling, at (518-233-6850 ext. 31340) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Concussion Management & Awareness Act
The Board of Education of the Lansingburgh School District recognizes that concussions and head injuries are commonly reported injuries in children and adolescents who participate in sports and recreational activities and can have serious consequences if not managed carefully.
“A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI— caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. This fast movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging the brain cells.
Although most people recover fully after a concussion, how quickly they improve depends on many factors. These factors include how severe their concussion was, their age, how healthy they were before the concussion, and how they take care of themselves after the injury."
Cited from Center for Disease Control https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/basics/concussion_whatis.html
With the use of improved evaluation, symptom recognition and neurocognitive testing combined with education for coaches, athletes, parents and teachers; Lansingburgh CSD hopes to diminish the risks that concussions can bring to students.
