Your health and safety are our top concerns. The best way to prevent COVID-19 illness is to avoid being
exposed to this virus. Although it may be difficult to remain away from school and friends, social distancing can
reduce the spread of the disease. Here are some additional steps you can take to protect yourself and your
families.
● Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
● Use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
● Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
● Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
● Stay home if you are sick. Ask a friend or neighbor to go to the store for you.
● Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
Below are some additional resources for updated information regarding COVID 19.

Attention Incoming Freshmen

The School Code of Illinois requires that each student entering 9th Grade have a physical examination completed by a licensed physician, advanced practice nurse or physicians' assistant.  Class schedules will not be issued without a completed physical and up to date immunization record on file with the school nurses.  Parents/Guardians must complete and sign the Medical History section as well as the Emergency Information section.  Please turn in the completed physical to the school nurses office as soon as possible.  The physical form below may be printed out.

 

Attention Seniors (12 Graders)

 

Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccination (MCV4) is a requirement for all 12 grade students in Illinois.  Your student must show proof of having received 2 doses of MCV, unless they have received their first dose after 16 years of age.  Please provide documentation from the physician's office as soon as possible.  No schedules will be provided to 12 grade students until this requirement is met.
