Illinois state health mandate requires Oct. 15 deadline

Parents are reminded that Illinois State law mandates that all students must be in compliance with state health laws by October 15, 2018, or they will not be allowed to attend school. Parents of students not in compliance with the state health laws have been notified several times regarding the state’s health requirements, and will receive an additional letter from their school’s principal outlining exactly which examination and/or immunization requirements are still needed.                      

Children who do not have the required information submitted by October 12, 2018 will not be able to attend school starting on October 15, 2018, until all requirements have been completed. This is an Illinois state mandate, not a requirement of District 200. The school bus will not transport students who have not fulfilled the state requirements, beginning October 15, 2018, and until the school nurse confirms that the requirements have been fulfilled.

For any family who has not fulfilled the requirements, as of October 15, a parent or guardian will be required to bring their child to school with the missing requirements to be reviewed by the school nurse during school hours.  School bus drivers are not allowed to review or accept this information. Parents are asked to call the school nurse during school hours with any questions or concerns.

The information below is provided as a resource for parents who may be in need of affordable health care. Patients are seen by appointment only.
