Return to Play guidelines accepted by Board of Education
The De Soto USD 232 Board of Education approved the presented Return to Play guidelines for all non-concussive injuries during Monday night's meeting.
The protocol outlined in the adopted guidelines is nothing new to the district, said district Director of Facilities Steve Deghand.
"What you have in front of you are the same actions our coaches and trainers and teachers have always taken, we just got together and put them on paper," Deghand told the board.
The guidelines list the specific steps that must be taken when a student suffers an injury or comes forward suffering pain and "err on the side of caution," according to Deghand.
All student incidents are covered under the guidelines, meaning accidents on the playground will be handled just like an injury to a student athlete.
