Physical Exams

Illinois state law requires children entering kindergarten, 6th grade and 9th grade to have a complete physical examination on file with the school health office before the first day of school or the child will not be allowed to start school. Physical exams must have been completed within one year prior to the first day of school.

Upon completion of your child’s health exam, forms and immunization records may be scanned and emailed to the school nurse by visiting the medical records submission page of the District 47 website. Forms can also be mailed or dropped off at your child’s school office on or after August 1, 2022. Forms may not be dropped off, mailed or emailed to the CORE Center.

If your child plans to participate in a District 47 middle school sport, a sports physical or health exam is required. Sports physicals are valid for 395 days. State health and sports physical forms are available in medical provider offices or can be found on the IHSA website.

Visit the District 47 website for a complete schedule of state health, dental, and vision exam and immunization requirements by grade level.
