Health Requirements for Elementary School Attendance & Helpful Information
Physical examinations are required for early childhood kindergarten, kindergarten and for students entering school for the first time. Physicals must be completed no earlier than one year prior to the student’s first day of school. Students transferring from an Illinois school may submit the physical on file from the previous school. Out of state/country transfer students must present a health examination that was completed within one year prior to entry into an Illinois school on a form comparable to the Illinois physical form. New students have a thirty (30) day grace period to provide evidence of a physical examination and immunizations. For safety considerations, students may not participate in physical education class until the required physical form is on file in the health office.

Asthma: If your student has asthma, having an Asthma Action Plan at school means that we will have an awareness of what your child's triggers are and what their "green, yellow, and red" Peak Flow Zones are. The information in an Asthma Action Plan will give us the information we need to take care of your child. Please download and print an Asthma Action Plan here: Asthma Action Plan
Food/Peanut/Tree Nut Allergies: Please notify the health office if your child has any type of severe food allergy that may require emergency attention.
