The school code of Illinois requires that each student entering school for the first time (kindergarten) and students entering sixth grade along with transfer students must submit evidence of a physical examination done by a licensed physician, advanced practice nurse or examining physician assistant and a complete record of immunizations. The physical examination must be dated within one (1) year prior to the first day of school and must be completed on the State of Illinois Department of Human Services Certificate of Child Health Examination. Medical and Religious objections to any physical examination or immunization must be submitted in writing and must contain required information. The physical form and record of immunizations are due at the time of registration or prior to starting school. STUDENTS ENROLLING AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR WHO DO NOT MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM SCHOOL ATTENDANCE PER DISTRICT POLICY.
