Nurse's Office

A registered nurse is available at both campuses. All students who receive injuries in classes or on the school grounds should report to the nurse immediately. All students requesting permission to leave school due to illness must see the registered nurse prior to leaving school. At the south campus when a student is unable to walk up or down stairs because of a health problem or injury, an elevator card/key can be obtained from the nurse. If a student fails to return the card/key when it is no longer needed, or if the key is lost, then a fee will be assessed to the student.

Important Information and Links

Certificate of Child Health Examination (School Physical)

The Illinois School Code requires that all students entering as freshmen or as transfer students must have a physical exam performed by a licensed physician (M.D. or D.O.), Advanced Practice Nurse (APN), or Physician's Assistant (PA). The physical exam form must be completed and turned by the first day of school. Documentation of immunity to or vaccination for tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), meningitis, polio, measles, rubella, mumps, hepatitis B and varicella (chicken pox) is also required per Illinois School Code. Verification of varicella disease by a health care provider can be submitted in lieu of vaccination. All physical and immunization information must be recorded in the current Department of Human Services Certificate of Child Health Examination. No student will be allowed to attend school unless he or she has provided evidence that the physical examination has been completed and includes proof of all required immunizations. The physical form must be complete, including the Parent/Guardian section.
* A sports physical will not be accepted as a ninth grade physical.

Vision and hearing screening will be done, as mandated, for freshmen during the semester in which they have physical education and for new students in the school district. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Students will not be required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months and that evaluation is on file at the school.
