JISD has a full-time licensed athletic trainer (LAT) on staff - Jason Kraus. We also have a contract with Chritus Trinity Mother Francis for a second athletic trainer for the 2017-2018 AND 2018-2019 school year, Shaylee Fouts.
If your child has an injury, the trainer is here on the HS campus each morning at 7:00 AM to look, evaluate, and give treatment if necessary. Occasionally we have a doctor that comes to the fieldhouse 1st period to see injuries.
If your child needs to go to the doctor, hospital, ER, etc due to an athletic injury, you should see the trainer for an evaluation of your injury, and get an student insurance form from the trainer before you go to the ER or your doctor. It is very important for the trainer to see the injury and be aware of the situation before you take the athlete to the doctor.
If you have any questions, feel free to call 903-586-3661, xt 7912.
