Health & Wellness
Nothing is more important to us than the health and wellness of our students. All District 65 schools have a Health Office and our dedicated health services team is trained and/or certified to support student illness or injury while at school. They will support in administering medication as needed, providing first aid, supporting communicable disease response, and caring for other special health/needs concerns.
It's important that every student has current emergency contact and health information on file with the District. This includes at least one person over the age of 18 who can quickly pick up a student in the event of illness or other unforeseen circumstance. Any changes can be made via PowerSchool (parent portal), by calling the school office or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Health Requirements & Forms for the 2024-2025 School Year
State of Illinois law requires school districts to have certain health information on file for students entering a specific grade. This includes verification of immunizations as well as physical, dental, and eye examinations. Completed forms may be submitted to your schools health office personnel, dropped off at the JEH Education Center (1500 McDaniel Ave), emailed to Health Services at email@example.com or faxed to 847-866-7280. All forms must be legible; pictures and snapshots are not acceptable.
Unless an exemption applies, the failure to comply with the physical exam and immunization requirements by October 1st of the current school year will result in the student’s exclusion from school until the required health forms are provided. If you are unable to schedule an appointment for your child prior to the first day of school, you will need to submit proof of an upcoming appointment that is scheduled to occur before the October 1st deadline in order for your child to attend school.
