Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act Information: The Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Prevention Act is a new law as of July 1, 2022. This law requires that schools, students, and parents have information on sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) signs and symptoms to ensure students at risk are evaluated before participation in athletics and that any symptoms of SCA are immediately recognized and treated to prevent death. Although SCA is rare, there are steps parents/guardians and school personnel can take to identify students who may be at risk and help to identify students exhibiting signs or symptoms as they are an important indication that a student should be seen by a healthcare provider for an evaluation, please read more here.

To ensure the health and safety of our student-athletes, and comply with this law we have updated the questions related to heart health in the Family ID Registration: Family Health History and Health/Medical sections. The questions help identify changes since the last physical examination or health history was completed. These sections must be completed for your registration to be submitted. Families who fill out yes for these questions during registration will be contacted by their school nurse with additional information on how to provide this documentation.

Possible new documentation requirements: The law requires any student who has signs and symptoms of pending SCA, or whose immediate family has had signs or symptoms of pending SCA, to provide clearance from a licensed medical provider prior to being cleared for or participating in athletics. Additionally, if students develop symptoms and are removed from participating during the season, they cannot return unless they are evaluated by and receive written clearance from a licensed physician. Again, if additional documentation is required, families will be contacted by the school nurse.

Additional information about the signs and symptoms of SCA is available under the forms and information section on this page.

Reminder -- Updated Registration Process -- FamilyID: 

For new families and as a reminder from the Fall of 2021, we started using a new sports registration process during the 2021-2022 school year. RCS families now have the convenience of online athletics registration through FamilyID (www.familyid.com).
