Letter from the Health Center

April 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Greetings from the Health Center at Concord Academy! We want to highlight a few requirements and requests. We welcome inquiries via email or telephone regarding any of the following policies.

Health Forms and Physicals

Your child must have a physical examination every year for school and sports participation. Please take the time now to schedule your child's physical. For the upcoming school year, we will continue to collect student health information online. Log-in information will be sent to you in June, with complete instructions for entering or updating student health information in Magnus, and for uploading physical exam reports, immunization records, and any other required forms. You will be guided through the process step-by-step, and technical help will be available to answer any questions you might have. Health forms are due no later than July 29, 2019. Students without completed health forms will not be permitted to enroll in the 2019–20 school year, including preseason athletes and students in leadership positions.

Health Insurance

Concord Academy requires that all students be covered by health insurance. You will be asked to provide insurance information as part of the student health form process. If you live outside Massachusetts, please be sure that your insurance plan will cover medical care for your child while your child is away at school. Many out-of-state plans cover Emergency Room care but do not cover appointments for nonemergent care, diagnostic testing, or specialists. Any medical charges not covered by your insurance will be your responsibility. We strongly advise that international students purchase the student insurance, as well, to ensure the care and safety of all students while away at boarding school. It has been our experience that the student insurance provides excellent coverage for health care needs that may arise.

Sexual Health

Massachusetts state law permits minors to receive contraceptive counseling, contraception (including emergency contraception), and screening for sexually transmitted infections without parental consent. When requested, Concord Academy Health Services may assist your child in accessing these services. You may wish to discuss these issues with your child prior to the start of school.

 

We appreciate your timely attention to these requests. If you have any questions about the technical aspect of uploading forms or connecting to Magnus, please contact the Magnus help desk at 877-461-6831.

Sincerely,

Eve Fraser-Corp, R.N.
