Health/Nutrition/Insurance Info

Health Insurance Options

All students that intend to participate in any athletic program for Beaumont HS must have health insurance. This health insurance is required to cover any potential injury that may occur due to participation in competitive sports. If health insurance is not provided by an employer, or your family does not currently have health insurance, the following are options for obtaining coverage:

 

CA Healthy Families: Visit http://echealthinsurance.com/california-health-insurance/public-programs/healthy-families-california/ for information about purchasing low-cost insurance for your school-age children.

 

Myers-Stevens Insurance:  You may download a brochure for this insurance coverage in ENGLISH or SPANISH from the "Student Accident Insurance for Athletes" box on the BHS athletics homepage, come to the athletic office at BHS, or call 800-827-4695 for information. Parents/guardians may also enroll online (Click on "ENROLL" in upper right-hand corner) at www.myers-stevens.com, where, upon completion of all information and payment, a proof of insurance registration form may be printed and submitted to the BHS athletic office. Insurance through Myers-Stevens is also recommended for all student-athletes to help supplement coverage for potential injuries.

 

Upon obtaining insurance coverage from any of these sources, please complete the emergency card in your student's athletic packet by writing your insurance provider, policy # and phone # on it. Then bring your completed athletic packet to the office for processing.

Riverside Sports Clinic

The Riverside Medical Clinic Sports Clinic is one of the Inland Empire's leading clinics for diagnosing sports injuries. Through our relationship with the Sports Clinic and our head athletic trainer, Beaumont HS student-athletes who suffer a serious injury can be seen for an initial consultation and injury evaluation. The hours are 6:00 - 8:00 AM, Monday through Friday. The Sports Clinic flyer can be downloaded HERE to provide all contact and address information. In the event of an injury, our head athletic trainer can answer questions for you, and answer questions about having your student-athlete evaluated. If you have a question regarding an injury, rehab procedures or return-to-play protocols, please e-mail Nicole Calderilla at ncalderilla@beaumontusd.k12.ca.us.

MRSA and Skin Infection

The attached CIF sports medicine alert about "MRSA", which is a skin infection that can develop through contact in any public area. The fact sheet is designed to help bring awareness to cleanliness and hygiene that can help to prevent the contraction and spread of this type of skin infection. Please refer to the highlighted link above for complete information.

Concussion Information

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that may be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. Concussions can range from mild to severe, and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Less than 10% of athletes that suffer a concussion actually lose consciousness, or are "knocked out". Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. 

As a CIF member school, Beaumont HS follows CIF-State Executive Board Bylaw 313 which states:

"A student-athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury in a practice or game shall be removed from competition at that time for the remainder of the day. A student-athlete who has been removed from play may not return to play until the athlete is evaluated by a licensed health care provider trained in the evaluation and management of concussion, and receives written clearance to return to play from that health care provider."

All BHS student-athletes and parents must sign the concussion information sheet included in the BHS athletic packet prior to participation in any sport. Further information can be found in the following documents and websites:

CIF Return To Learn School Work Guidelines - Parents

Hydration and Heat Illness Prevention

The attached CIF "Prevention of Heat Illness" bulletin contains important information for parents and student-athletes. Hydration is an extremely important measure for student-athletes to be responsible for throughout the day in preparation for any physical activity, including PE class and athletic activities outside of Beaumont HS (recreation, club, travel, etc). Our athletic director and head athletic trainer oversee our athletic activities on campus, and monitor weather conditions that may affect activities. All of our coaches must complete semi-annual certification through the National Federation of High Schools specifically for heat illness prevention, and are also CPR and 1st aid certified. More information for parents and student-athletes is available through the many resources at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, available HERE. There are many topics to choose from on the GSSI index on the left of the page that is linked.
