Important Health Requirements for Freshmen 2017-2018

As we welcome your child to York High School in the fall, we want to take this opportunity to explain the health requirements for incoming freshman students.  Illinois State law requires that all incoming freshmen have an updated physical examination and proof of receiving all required immunizations on file. The physical examination must be on either the state-approved certificate of health form; the approved form provided by some physicians’ offices; or on the form found on the district website, www.elmhurst205.org. Please note that the IHSA Sports Physical form is not acceptable for entry into 9th grade.

In order for your child to be in compliance with the physical examination and immunization requirements, the following MUST be completed as directed:
● All required immunizations must be documented on the front or first page of the form. The immunization chart must be filled in with correct dates and signed and dated by a physician, RN, or Medical Assistant.
● The child’s Health History questions (yes/no questions at the top of the second page) must be completed, signed, and dated by the parent/guardian.
● The Physical Examination is to be completed, signed, and dated by the physician. Please make sure that the physician has checked the boxes at the bottom of this page indicating whether or not your child can participate in physical education and interscholastic sports.

Please note: Incomplete examination forms and incomplete immunization records will be returned to you for completion. Your child will not be compliant with Illinois State Law until the necessary documentation is on file. The completed physical form must be on file in the York Health Services Office by the 1st day of school. Students who do not have a completed 9th grade physical and immunization record on file by the first day of school, will be placed on a list for possible exclusion. District 205 will exclude students from school according to state law, at the minimum date set forth by the Illinois State Board of Education. Once the student is excluded, the student will not be allowed to attend school, or participate in or attend any school functions, including athletic or extracurricular activities, until the required physical examination and immunization documentation is received in the Health Services Office.

 

Please submit completed physicals to the York High School Health Services Office. They may be mailed, brought into the Health Services Office, or faxed only to (630)-782-6594. During summer break, health records can be turned in at the York Main Office. Do not turn the form in to summer school staff, counselors, hall monitors or coaches. Please keep a copy for your records.

 

Students who do not have access to a health care provider may contact the DuPage County All Kids Program at (630)-782-7400.

 

If you have any questions please call the Health Services Office at (630)-617-2438.
