Coronavirus Information

With the growing concern regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19, below are some preventative safety measures, information on e-learning days, communication updates and important links. We are closely monitoring the situation and consulting guidelines from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

Prevention Tips

List of 8 items.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.

    If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 
  • Wipe down surfaces regularly with disinfectant wipes.

  • Avoid touching your face, especially eyes, nose and mouth.

  • Elbow bump instead of shaking hands.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw it away immediately.

  • Do not send your student to school if he or she is sick.

    Absences due to illness, including fever-related absences, will be recorded as an Excused Absence without a doctor's note. Teachers will work with students to create a plan to make up missed work.
  • Per our local authorities, it has been recommended that students stay home until they are fever-free for 48 hours.

  • If your student has a combination of a fever, cough and shortness of breath, contact your doctor.

    As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider immediately.

Maintaining a Positive School Culture

As a Jesuit school, we operate from a place of love and compassion rather than fear in our pursuit of creating an environment that is healthy, safe and free from bias or discrimination.Worldwide and in times of viral outbreak, there has historically been an uptick in racial harassment, xenophobia and insensitive remarks. Loyola Academy will not tolerate discrimination of any kind.

Our Mission

To form women and men for meaningful lives of leadership and service in imitation of Jesus Christ through a college preparatory education in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition.
Loyola Academy admits students of any race, color and national origin or ethnic origin.
