WELLNESS NEWS & INFORMATION

  • Dear Parent/Guardian:
     
    State of Illinois law requires school districts to have certain health information on file for students entering a specific grade including verification of immunizations as well as physical, dental, and eye examinations.  All forms MUST BE submitted no later than October 1, 2020. Any student out of compliance will not be allowed to attend school in person, once we are back. Further information can be found on the District's website, https://www.district65.net/Page/86.
     
    Immunization dates and records must be submitted on the Child Health Form, signed, stamped, and dated by a healthcare provider. The Illinois Department of Public Health requires all students entering, advancing, or transferring into sixth through eighth grade to show proof of receipt of a dose of Tdap vaccine (combined tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis) regardless of the interval since the last DTaP, DT, or Td dose.
     
    State of Illinois law requires proof of a physical examination dated no earlier than one year prior to a student entering kindergarten and sixth grade, for all students entering the district for the first time, and for all students entering District 65 from outside the State of Illinois or the United States.
     
    Students entering kindergartensecond, and sixth grade are required to have a dental exam on file. School dental examinations must have been completed within 18 months prior to the May 15, 2021 deadline.
     
    State of Illinois law requires proof of a comprehensive eye examination for all children entering kindergarten, or enrolling in a public, private or parochial school in Illinois for the first time. The examination must have been completed within one year prior to the child beginning school and submitted to the school no later than October 15, 2021 of the year the child is first enrolled.

    Again, The State of Illinois requires submission of these health documents. Failure to submit will result in your child being excluded from school on Thursday, October 1, 2020.  Thank you so much for your cooperation in this matter. We appreciate your efforts.
