Parents and students are reminded of the importance of student attendance at all classes during the school day. If your student is absent or late, the parent or guardian must notify the school between 7:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on the day of the absence. A phone call is required every day of the absence.
Requests to excuse students for medical appointments during the school day must be verified by medical personnel, in writing, in order to be classified as an excused absence. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary sanctions.
To promote and maintain an environment of scholarship, self-respect, discipline and community, we ask that all students report to school each day well-groomed and attired in clothing that is modest and in accordance with Loyola's dress code. Our dress code will be enforced starting on Monday, August 20, 2018. Students are required to wear traditional classic-cut or relaxed-fit chino khaki dress slacks and LoyolaWear shirts with the Loyola Academy seal. Please note that "skinny style" pants do not comply with the dress code. Shoes must be worn during the school day. No sandals or boots are permitted. Young men must be clean-shaven and their hair length should not be below the shirt collar.
Questions regarding availability of LoyolaWear should be directed to LoyolaWear Store Manager Ms. Lisa Lovcik at 847.920.2486 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All students are required to have an iPad for school use. Students can utilize cell phones for educational purposes only. Teachers will inform students when they require use of the cell phone as an educational tool. Please reference the Technology Use Policy section of the Student Handbook for details on responsible use of devices.
Updated protocol for entering and exiting the building during construction:
To balance the need for security with our goal of creating a welcoming and engaging environment, access to Loyola Academy in the morning hours will be limited to two doors. These doors are numbered on the inside and outside of the school building.
No food and/or beverage deliveries for students are permitted during the school day under any circumstances. All attempts by outside vendors and third-party delivery services to deliver food will be denied by Loyola's front desk staff. Staff at the primary entryways will not receive food or beverages from anyone. The cost of a failed delivery will be the responsibility of the student.
All visitors are asked to obtain a Visitor's Parking Permit from the security desk in the main lobby. Please pull into the circle drive and obtain the permit before parking in the lot. You are invited to store the permit in your car to use on subsequent visits to Loyola Academy. We ask all Loyola students, faculty, staff and visitors to park in a legal parking spot in the lot whenever it is available. Those who choose to utilize Visitor Parking in the drop off/pick up lanes may not park before 8:30 a.m. and must move their vehicles by 2:30 p.m. at the latest. Security personnel in the main lobby can direct you where to park if no legal spots are available. If you are issued a ticket in error, please contact the Dean’s Office at 847.920.2707.
