Here are a Few Important Back-to-School Health Reminders:

All students are required to have the following health records on file in order to stay in school. These are mandated regulations from the state, and must be turned in no later than October 15, 2019 to avoid exclusion from school:

  • Pre-School: A State of Illinois physical completed within the last year (8/14/2018 to present) along with these immunizations: 4 DTaP, 3 IPV, at least 1 HIB, a completed Hepatitis B Series, at least 1 pneumococcal, 1 Varicella and 1 MMR vaccine. Also, please make sure the parent portion on the back of the physical is completed.

  • Kindergarten/New Student(s): A State of Illinois physical completed within the last year (8/14/2018 to present) with a lead screening along with these required immunizations: 4 or more DTaP with the last dose after age four, 3 or more IPV-with the last dose after age four, 2 Varicella and 2 MMR vaccines. A vision examination completed by an eye doctor and a dental examination. Also, please make sure the parent portion on the back of the physical is completed.

  • Second Grade:A dental exam.

  • Sixth Grade: A State of Illinois physical completed within the last year (8/14/2018 to present) along with these current immunizations: Tdap, MCV, a completed Hepatitis B Series, 2 Varicella, and 2 MMR vaccines; a dental exam. Also, please make sure the parent portion on the back of the physical is completed.

**If your student has a health condition and/or needs special accommodations during the school day such as medication, treatments, or monitoring, etc., please inform the school nurse. Medication forms and other documentation by a doctor MUST be completed for your student to be observed appropriately at school. It is the law. This includes any and all types of medication. Students are not allowed to take medicine at school without a note from a doctor. Medical care plans, rescue inhalers, and EpiPens are a necessity, and may save a life!**

Please feel free to call the school nurse for any questions or concerns! Thank you!!
