Physicals and Immunizations
All kindergarten and sixth grade students and any first graders who have not attended kindergarten must have new physicals and be fully immunized against communicable diseases (diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and TB test). As part of the physical exam, lead screening is required if determined to be necessary after verbal screening by the physician, for all students under 6 years of age. The date of every immunization received since infancy must be recorded on the physical examination form. The physical form for kindergarten and 6th grade students must be completed within one year prior to the start of the school year (between September 4, 2012 and September 4, 2013). These forms must be returned with your registration materials. All forms must be on file for the first day of school. In unusual circumstances and where mitigating factors warrant, the Superintendent may permit an out-of-state transfer student to attend school without evidence of physical examination and immunization if the parent/guardians present to the Superintendent a signed statement indicating the student has been physically examined and immunized in accordance with the requirements of The School Code. If evidence of physical examination and an immunization is not presented to the district within fifteen (15) days of enrollment, the transfer student will be excluded from school.
