Important Health Reminder
September 30 Deadline Approaching
Dear Preschool, Kindergarten, Sixth Grade and New Parents,
While most of you may already have this take care of, this is a reminder that the Illinois School Code and Board of Education policy requires ALL students to show evidence of a physical health examination and proper immunizations upon entrance to any Illinois public school for the first time, as well as for children entering preschool, kindergarten and sixth grade.
All physical exams and immunizations were due by the FIRST DAY of student attendance. For those who have not yet turned in the required documentation, the absolute deadline is Friday, September 30th. Students not in compliance after that date may not attend school until meeting these requirements.
This is extremely important. If you have not already done so, please submit this documentation to your child's school office to the attention of District Nurse Karen Miranda by September 30th.
For more information, applicable forms and exemption information, please view the Student Health Center section of our website at your earliest convenience and direct any questions to Mrs. Miranda at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 815-223-1111.
This will be the final general reminder before we proceed with contacting individual households. Thank you very much for your attention to this important matter and let us know if you have any questions.
Mark R. Cross, Superintendent Karen Miranda, District Nurse
