"Return to Class" Protocol for youth athletes with concussions

In Massachusettes, a new concussion protocol is being introduced for adolescent athletes returning to class. Depending on the severity, communication between medical staff and teachers would take place as as to what the students should be allowed to do in the classroom, if anything, as the brain recovers from concussion. It is unclear how the communication would actually take place with their color coded system, but the main point is that even things such as homework, video games and text messaging could be detrimental in the brain's recovery. Allowing the brain time to rest and recover is the most important thing.
