All immunization records, accident reports, and records of release of information contained in the permanent record will be kept as part of the permanent school records.


Health Requirements for School Attendance

Below is a list of school health requirements for kindergarten, second, sixth and ninth grade students for the upcoming school year. The required forms can be found on the district or school website under Health Services.


Physical Examination Requirements

The Illinois school code requires that students entering school for the first time (early childhood, kindergarten, or first grades), students entering kindergarten, sixth and ninth grades, and transfer students must submit evidence of a physical examination and a complete record of immunizations.

  • The completed physical examination and record of immunization form is expected at the school health office upon enrollment/ registration and required by the first day of student attendance.

Students who do not meet these requirements will be excluded and will not be able to attend school, per district policy.

Medication Pick-up


Dear Parent/Guardian,
