Physical and Immunization Requirements
The State of Illinois requires that a current physical be on file AT THE SCHOOL by the first day of school for Kindergarten, 6th and 9th graders. This physical must be performed by a licensed physician and be documented on the State of Illinois Certificate of Child Health Examination form. This form is available for download below and should also be available at your physician's office.
Required immunizations MUST BE COMPLETED before October 15th of the school year or the child will not be able to continue to attend school beginning on October 15th. The student will be excluded from school until the appropriate immunizations are administered and the proper certifications have been submitted to the school.
A current physical is one that has been performed by a physician during the calendar year (January through December). This means that you may take your child to get his/her physical anytime during the current year (from January 1st) up to the first day of school to meet the deadline.
If your child will be participating in sports, please be aware that his/her physical must cover the entire time frame in which that sport is practiced and played. We recommend that your child have his/her physical done during the summer months so that he/she will be able to participate in all practices and events in any/all sports.
