2. Remove observed or suspected concussed students from play based on signs and symptoms,
3. Withhold further participation until evaluated by, and received written and signed authorization to return to activities from a licensed physician.
4. Obtain physician clearance, and when the athlete has been symptom-free off pain killing medicines for a minimum of 24 hours and allow them to begin a monitored progressive six phase return to play.
