I apologize for the delay in ImPACT baseline test emails.  Due to the email being generated by ImPACT, they are being blocked when sent to the student.  Ms Phillips, BHS Athletic Trainer with ATI is generating new unique codes and links.  Ms Phillips will use the email account that was used to register the student, unless that account is a student email address.  In this case, Ms Phillips will use the email account in the parent/guardian sections.  Please be on the lookout for this email by 5PM on Wednesday, September 16, 2020.  These emails sometimes go to spam/junk.  I appreciate you patience.
