The Illinois State Board of Education requires that all children’s health records be complete by October 15 of each school year. If a child’s records are not complete, parents/guardians should have received a letter from the school nurse explaining what is still needed.
It is an Illinois State Mandate – and not the local administration – that requires all health records to be in compliance by October 15th. The state also requires that children be excluded from school after October 15 if health records are not complete.
Any parent who is in need of information or assistance to complete this important requirement is urged to contact the School Nurse as soon as possible.
