Loyola developed a school policy several years ago that ALL students receive an annual physical. This was due in part because of the numerous events and classes that could involve physical activity. A Loyola’s student’s health is one of our highest concerns.
Do I need to have my son’s physical performed at Loyola?
NO, you can have a physical completed anywhere as long as it is done by licensed medical provider and has the office stamp of the MD that provided the service.
Why does my son need a concussion baseline even though he is not playing a sport?
Concussions can happen at any time. From car accidents, skateboarding, PE classes etc. Loyola wants to ensure that all students have the same opportunity to recover from a concussion academically as well as physically. Loyola has a Return to Learn policy in place that allows all students to return to the classroom in manner that benefits not just athletes.
What is the purpose of a concussion baseline?
Concussion baselines are an objective tools that are used in the medical profession to help evaluate if a student is improving from a concussion.
Do concussion baselines have to be completed at Loyola?
YES, all baselines need to be completed through Loyola High School. There is no additional charge for this service.
My son is not eligible for a physical until his birthday or during the school year due to insurance regulations. What can I do?
There are several options.
• Call your primary care doctor, schedule appointment and pay cash.
• Go to a CVS Minute Clinic or an Urgent Care and have a physical performed there.
• For future physicals schedule them during the summer months so that they will be completed before the beginning of each school year.
