Sylvan-Lucas Unified Jr/Sr High School Athletes to Take ImPACT Test

Lincoln County Hospital is sponsoring ImPACT testing for USD 299 student-athletes. Male athletes will be tested on Wednesday, September 2nd, and female athletes will be tested on Thursday, September 3rd.  

ImPACT testing is the leading company for baseline and post injury testing for concussions.  It helps doctors and medical staff evaluate and treat after a concussion has occurred with more accuracy and ability to give the best treatment possible.  A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that is hard to diagnose with imaging alone and everyone heals at a different rate.  This test (which is all computerized) is not a solution or preventative tool for concussions but simply an assistive tool for medical evaluations.  It is currently being used by over 7,400 high schools, 1,300 colleges and universities and all of MLB, NHL and the NFL.

With the ImPACT test there are two parts. The first is the pre-test that will be offered at SLUJSHS and administered by USD 299 Nurse, Elizabeth Sheldon.   The second part of the ImPACT test will be conducted after a concussion is suspected.   For students in grades 9-12, the ImPACT test will only need to be taken once every two years. Our Junior High students will need to take the test every year.  

The SLUJSHS Athletic Department will continue to follow Kansas State Law that if a student has suffered a concussion or is suspected of a concussion that student will be held out of practice or competition until written medical clearance is granted from a Health Care Professional.  This practice is mandated by the Kansas School Sports Head Injury Prevention Act.  The ImPACT Test will simply serve as an assistive tool for medical personnel to help evaluate potential concussions.

Letters containing the above information have been mailed out to parents/guardians.  If you do not wish to have your child participate in this testing, please fill out the slip included in the mailing and return it to the Jr/Sr High School Office.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact USD 299 Nurse, Mrs. Elizabeth Sheldon, at esheldon@usd299.org or (785)531-2718.
