New Student Info
The State of Illinois School Code requires a physical and immunization record for all children entering Preschool, Kindergarten, Sixth, and Ninth grade. These must be submitted to the nurse’s office by the first day of school. An oral health examination is also required for children in Kindergarten, Second and Sixth grade. Students will be excluded on October 15th, if the physical and immunization requirements are not complete. The Health History on the top of page 2 must be completed and signed by the parent / legal guardian.
Families who transfer from out of state are also required to complete a physical and all immunizations. Physical examinations must be no earlier than one year prior to Kaneland entrance date. Students entering school from out of state after October 15th have thirty days to complete the physical.
If your child will be participating in a spring sport next year, you will need to wait until June to get their physical. The physicals are good for only one calendar year. Sports physical forms can be downloaded here or obtained at the school office.
Question: Can I use the sports physical for my 9th grade physical requirement?
Answer: No, the sports physical can only be used for sports, but a 9th grade physical can be used for the sports physical requirement.
Question: Who needs the Hepatitis B (3 shot series)?
Answer: All students through 12th grade unless they have a medical or religious exemption. If your student has already received the series of 3, it does not need to be repeated.
For families who might find these requirements a financial burden, there are low cost services available. Please call the nurse’s office for further information or call the Kane County Health Department at 630-264-7665. For more information on the required immunizations for each grade level, please see the Immunization link. It is our desire that NO student be excluded from school!
Ninth graders, who also need an athletic physical, can either submit a copy of their ninth grade physical or have their physician complete the sports physical form. The sports physical form may not be used for the ninth grade physical. If your child will be participating in a spring sport in high school, you must wait until the summer before getting your physical. Sports physicals are only good for one calendar year from the time the physical examination was done. A physical is required even to try out for a sport, poms, and cheerleading. If using a regular physical for sports, poms, or cheerleading, you should make two copies. The athletic department will require one copy, keep one for your own records and the original goes to the school nurse. Please mail the physical and copy in as soon as you get them done, so the nurse can process them.
