Health Requirements

flu season

ENGLISH: “Both the flu (influenza) and COVID-19 are contagious and will be spreading this fall and winter. They have similar symptoms, so it can be hard to tell them apart.

Fortunately, we have a vaccine to help prevent the flu. Make sure your child gets a flu shot, ideally by the end of October or sooner. This is more important than ever this flu season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.” 

SPANISH: “Tanto la gripe (influenza) como el COVID-19 son contagiosos y se propagarán en el otoño y el invierno. Los dos tienen síntomas parecidos, así que puede ser difícil diferenciarlos.

Afortunadamente, tenemos una vacuna que nos ayuda a prevenir la influenza (gripe). Cerciórese de que su niño reciba la vacuna contra la influenza, preferiblemente para finales de octubre o antes. Esto es mucho más importante que nunca esta temporada de la gripe debido a la pandemia del COVID-19.”

**Due to COVID-19 we understand scheduling appointments may be delayed. If your child needs an exam but does not meet the deadline, please send a note from the dr. office indicating you have an appointment on the books. This may temporarily satisfy your student's file.



EXAMINATION REQUIREMENTS

A physical examination is required by the state of Illinois and Monmouth-Roseville School District for all children entering the District from another state and for students entering:
Pre-Kindergarten
Kindergarten
6th
9th

These completed examinations are filed with the school and must be presented to the appropriate school by or on the first day of the school term. If these forms are not in the hands of the school on that day, the students will not be admitted to class unless a written note accompanies the child, with the doctor’s or dentist’s name and appointment time. All local health care providers have the necessary blank forms for these examinations.

IMMUNIZATION & VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS
A new law will require students, upon entering the 6th and the 12th grade of any public, private, or parochial school to receive an immunization containing meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) in accordance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The immunization requirement consists of one dose of the MCV4 vaccine for 6th grade entrance and 2 doses for 12th grade entrance, unless the first dose was administered to a child who was 16 years of age or older, in which case only one dose would be required at 12th grade entrance.

Students entering 6th grade must have completed the Hepatitis B vaccine series.

Students entering any grade level (Kindergarten-12th) shall show proof of having received two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccines.

Students entering Kindergarten, 6th, or 9th grade for the first time shall show proof of having received two doses of the varicella vaccine. Only those students who have been immunized or have had the disease (Chicken Pox) will be considered immune.

All students entering, advancing, or transferring into 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades will be required to show proof of an up to date dose of Tdap vaccine (combined tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis).

You will receive a letter if the school has not received acceptable documentation relating to any of the medical requirements. October 15th is the exclusion date for all children not having completed the required physical examination and required vaccinations. The student will not be allowed to return to school until all of the medical requirements are completed or an appointment has been made for completion of all the state medical requirements.

DENTAL EXAMINATION REQUIREMENTS
Dental exams are required for
Kindergarten
2nd
6th
and 9th graders.

VISION EXAMINATION REQUIREMENTS
A vision/eye exam is required for Kindergarten students and any student entering from out-of-state.

ATHLETIC PHYSICALS
Students in 6th - 12th grades who plan to participate in athletics must have a Sports Physical examination before they will be permitted to participate in the first practice of any sport. Parents should note that an athletic physical is good for one calendar year. Therefore, it is best to have a sports physical done in June, July or early August. A regular school physical for 6th and 9th Grades ONLY satisfies the athletic requirement for one year.

*Students who need a School Physical do NOT also need a Sports physical.

*Click for a copy of the IHSA or IESA physical form. Your physician's office may also have this form.
