A ninth grade physical is required for high school entrance (sports physicals are not acceptable). Immunizations must be included for Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap), Polio, MMR (Measles/Mumps/Rubella), Hepatitis B series and Varicella.
The Health History Section (yes/no questions) must be completed, signed and dated by the parent/guardian. If this section is not filled out, your form will be returned.
The completed form must be turned in to health services for processing no later than July 15. Physicals for ninth grade entrance include eligibility for athletic participation for one year.
Incomplete forms will be returned and your child will be excluded from school on the first attendance day until the requirements have been met. School absences due to non-compliance with the Illinois School Code requirements for immunization and physical examination are considered unexcused.
All students entering 12th grade must show proof of receiving two doses of the Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine (MCV4/Menactra/Menveo). If the first dose of the vaccine was given at age 16 or older, only one dose will be required.
Students who have not submitted proof before the first day of school will be excluded until documentation is provided.
