Health Requirements

Physical Examination Requirements: If your child is new to the district or will be entering one of the following grades - Pre-K (for the first time), Kindergarten, 6th or 9th grade during the upcoming school year, the Illinois State Law requires the following:

  1. A recent Physical Examination (within 12 months).

  2. All 6-12th grade students are REQUIRED to provide proof of receipt of one dose of Tdap vaccination regardless of the interval since the last dose.

  3. All other required immunizations and current booster immunizations against measles, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, mumps, hepatitis B, chickenpox, and meningitis need to be documented by your health care provider and recorded on your child's Health Certificate under the immunization section. This form is to be signed by your health care provider (doctor or clinic) verifying all immunizations and turned into the school health office as well.

  4. The student's height, weight and blood pressure must be entered on the "Certificate of Child Health Examination".

  5. The "Diabetic Screening" portion must be completed by your physician.

  6. PARENT MUST COMPLETE AND SIGN the health history section of the "Certificate of Child Health Examination".

  7. "Lead Risk Questionnaire" must be completed for children age six years or younger.

A Certificate of Child Health Examination is to be completed by your family physician. Appointments can be made in the spring for the physical examinations since doctors' offices are very busy in August and may not have openings for physicals. Illinois State Law requires that this must be on file at your child's school BEFORE your child may start school. If your child has not fulfilled their health requirements prior to the time of registration, you are required to show proof of appointment (taking place prior to the first day of school).
