Meet Mrs. Wit

My name is Becky Wit. This will be my 13th year in the classroom and my 4th year in d303 teaching kindergarten. I hold a bachelors degree from Taylor University and a Masters from Aurora University. I took a 12-year break from the classroom to be home with my 4 children. They are now ages 8 - 14, 3rd grade through freshman, in Batavia this fall. My husband Steve is also in education, teaching science and coaching basketball at Glenbard North. We have a one year old dog Roxy that has had lots of extra walks and attention during our quarantine days. I love spending time with my family, watching my kids sports and activities which fills most of my free time. I can't wait to meet your child and help them feel safe and excited to learn together.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Wit

What do I need to know about Physicals and Vaccinations for School?

The State of Illinois and State Board of Education have not issued any changes in the school health requirements for the upcoming school year and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly supports the continued provision of health care for children during the COVID-19 pandemic. This care includes well-child care (school exams), preventative care, screenings and vaccinations. Thus, students entering school in D303 for the first time (early childhood, kindergarten, or first grades); students entering kindergarten, sixth and ninth grades; twelfth grade students requiring a meningococcal vaccine and transfer students must submit evidence of a physical examination and/or a complete record of immunizations in order to start school. Parents/Guardians who have not already done so should reach out to their health care provider to schedule their child's mandated physical examination and immunizations. Completed exams and immunizations may be mailed to your child's school, in care of the school nurse or they may be dropped off at your child's school (please check with your student's school main office regarding office hours before dropping off forms). District 303 has a first day exclusion policy with regard to health requirements so students who do not meet the health requirements mandated by the State of Illinois, will not be permitted to attend school until such time that they are compliant. If your child has a scheduled appointment to receive vaccines after the first day of school, a physician note indicating the date and time of your child's appointment must be submitted to the school prior to the first day.

Physical Examinations

The completed physical examination and record of immunization form is expected at the school health office by the first day of student attendance.

Physical examinations must be done by a licensed physician, advanced practice nurse or examining physician assistant.

Physical examinations must be dated within twelve months prior to the first day of school.

Only the State of Illinois Department of Human Services Certificate of Child Health Examination form will be accepted.

Medical objections to any physical examination or immunization must be submitted in writing by a physician and must contain required information.

Religious objections to any physical examination or immunization must be submitted by a parent/guardian in writing and must contain required information. Click here for the religious objection form.


Immunization Requirements

Immunization records must show proof of immunization against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, mumps, rubella, polio and chicken pox.

  • Early childhood students are also required to have haemophilus influenza (HIB) and pneumococcal vaccine.
  • Early childhood and sixth through twelfth grades are also required to have the hepatitis B vaccine.
  • Sixth through twelfth grades are required to have the Tdap vaccine.
  • Sixth and twelfth grades are required to have the meningococcal vaccine.


*Please make a copy of your child's health records before releasing them to the school.


Thank you,
