  • Vision/Hearing Examinations

    Vision and hearing screenings will be performed, as mandated, for the following students: teacher referral, transfer students new to the State of Illinois and Special Education students.  These screenings will take place in February or March.  Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by a doctor.  Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthamologist has completed and signed a report indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.

  • Physical Examinations

    A physical examination is required for entrance into ninth grade (all Freshmen) and/or when transferring from an out of state school.  The Health History portion of the physical examination form must be completed and signed by the parent in order for the physical to be valid.  

    The State of Illinois requires that all students entering school for the first time from out of state shall have a physical examination before October 15 of the year of the required exam or within 30 days of enrollment for new students from out of state.

     

    The exam must be dated within one year prior to the date the student enters school.  

     

    Physical Examinations may be acquired through your primary medical provider.  If you do not have a primary medical provider, you may contact the Dupage County Health Department for referrals to local health clinics that provide such services.  

    Please see Certificate of Health under Health Forms for proper entrance form.

    The athletic physical assessment does not meet the 9th grade physical exam requirement.
