In accordance with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Illinois School Code, physical examinations are required for all students entering Kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade, and children transferring from out-of-state.
Every child who enters Preschool, Kindergarten, sixth or ninth grade and every child who enters an Illinois school for the first time, irrespective of grade, must present evidence of immunization as prescribed by the rules and regulations of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
A copy of the physical examination and record of all immunizations the student has received must be on file with the School Health Office before school begins. Students failing to meet the immunizations and/or physical exam requirements will be excluded from all District schools.
Mid-year transfer students will have 30 days from the enrollment date to submit documentation of the required immunizations and physical exam. All students who are new to Illinois schools also need a complete vision exam.
Students must have a current physical exam on file at school before they can tryout or participate in any extracurricular athletics. Students may NOT try out for a sport without a physical exam. The physical must have been performed within the previous 395 days (13 months) prior to the start of participation, including tryouts and/or conditioning.
