HEADS UP to Schools: School Nurses
Keep HEADS UP to Schools materials available in your office and present them to other school staff during staff meetings. The signs and symptoms checklist is particularly useful in helping to monitor a student with a head injury. The fact sheet for parents should be sent home with a student who has a head injury so that parents and caregivers know which symptoms to look out for at home.
