Children must receive a physical examination:
1) Prior to entering Illinois Schools for the first time 2) Prior to Kindergarten 3) Prior to 6th grade 4) Prior to 9th grade
The examinations must be completed by a MD, DO, Nurse Practitioner, or Physicians Assistant and must be recorded on an Illinois School Physical form. Physicals of transfer students may be accepted on another form if the information is comparable to that required on the Illinois form and if the physical has been completed within the last year. The IHSA Pre-participation Examination (sports physical) form is not acceptable as the school physical. THE LAW REQUIRES US TO EXCLUDE ALL STUDENTS WHO DO NOT MEET THIS HEALTH EXAMINATION REQUIREMENT BY OCTOBER 15TH OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. (77 Ill. Adm. Code 665)
All ECFC students are required to have a physical exam prior to attending school.
