EMS Inservice Held at GHS

Approximately 40 EMTs from around the Richmond Metro Area attended an inservice session on sports injuries on August 27 at Goochland High School. The event was hosted by Ms. Melissa Black, Athletic Trainer. Her guests included Eddie Ferguson, EMS Deputy Chief, and Brad Taylor, EMS Coordinator for Chippenham Hospital. Ms. Black and her guests shared the latest information regarding practices and protocols for concussions, commotio cords, and removal techniques for football equipment.

Ms. Black and the entire GCPS coaching staff is committed to the protection of our athletes, and we appreciate their efforts.

Distracted Driving

The teachers in the Health and Physical Education department have been working on a campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. From eating to texting, distractions take drivers’ eyes away from the road and can cause terrible accidents. Here is a video the students have produced to call attention to the dangers of distracted driving.
