If your child has been to the dentist within the past year, please ask the dentist to fill out the state required dental form and return it to the Lyon health office. If your child has not been seen by a dentist within the past year, please make an appointment as soon as possible and return the state dental form to the health office. If you have any questions or need a copy of the state form please call Jan Gode, Lyon Health Coordinator at (847) 657-2894 or fax your completed form to (847) 998-9701 attn: Jan Gode.

State of Illinois Physical form requirement:
The State of Illinois requires all children to present evidence of having had a physical examination, including all required immunizations.
(State of Illinois Code, Chapter 122, Section 27-8)

  • A physical examination (no more than one year old) including immunizations (signed by the parent/guardian and a health care provider) is required for students entering kindergarten and again in 6th grade.
  • If a student is transferring into District 34 for the first time, he or she is also required to provide a copy of a State of Illinois physical exam including immunizations (signed by parent/guardian and a health care provider).

Medication at School

If your child needs to take any medication at school during the school day, either prescription or over-the-counter medicine, doctor approval must be on file in the Health Office at school. Forms can be found on the District 34 website on our frequently used forms page. There will be no exceptions to this policy. At no time should a student be given medication to carry to school in their backpack or pocket. Further information can be obtained by calling the Health Office phone number at (847)657-2894. The parents of students who require the use of an inhaler due to an asthmatic condition must contact the school Health Office.

After School Pick Up at Pleasant Ridge

Thank you to all the parents and guardians for your patience and cooperation during pick up time at Pleasant Ridge. While it's always busy every afternoon, we are safely dismissing children out of school, into cars, and on their way home. Please note a few reminders:

  • When you are on our school grounds, please do not use your cell phone while in our car pick up line
  • When leaving our South lot, cars cannot turn left onto Sunset Ridge
  • Please do not block our North lot exit when waiting on Sunset Ridge
  • Please be mindful of all our neighbors and avoid blocking their driveways

I appreciate everyone's patience during this busy daily time. Thank you for your cooperation, our goal is to safely dismiss children from school and have you start your afternoons as soon as possible!

Thank you.
