All freshmen are required by law to have a physical examination, completed on a Department of Human Services State of Illinois Certificate of Child Health Examination form. Freshmen must present this current physical examination on freshman distribution day. The physical examination needs to be dated within the 12 months prior to freshman distribution day. Your physician will need to sign this form in two places; 1. The immunization portion; and 2. The physical examination portion. A Parent/Guardian needs to complete, sign, and date the “Health History” section on the back of the physical form prior to the appointment with a health care provider. If your student is interested in participating in athletics, an additional copy of the Certificate of Child Health Examination must be submitted to the Athletic Department.
In addition to the Certificate of Child Health Examination form, the Illinois Department of Public Health also requires that students entering grade 9 have a dental exam on file. School dental examinations must have been completed within 18 months of freshman year. The form you will need to submit for this requirement is called the “Proof of School Dental Examination Form.
