An important message from the WNHS Nurse about health requirements

Hello, Thunder family! 
 
As summer break comes to an end, I just want to remind all families who have a freshman student and/or a student who is new to Illinois Public Schools that an Illinois Certificate of Examination (school physical) is required, and should be completed by your healthcare provider (parent/guardian portion also needs to be filled out and signed) and dated within one year of our school start date (i.e., after August 15, 2021).
 
Freshmen must also submit a dental exam. Any family with a senior at WNHS is required to submit proof of a 2nd meningitis vaccination (MCV4) having been given on or after the child's 16th birthday. These are state mandates and should be submitted by (or on) the first day of school, August 15, 2022
 
Completed health requirement forms can be dropped off at the school office. If the fulfillment of the required health form(s) has not occurred yet, please contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible, as appointments fill up quickly.
 
Go Thunder!
