Parents of District 186 students,
This a reminder that all kindergarten, 6th and 9th grade students must show proof of a recent physical exam and provide an updated immunization record prior to entry into school. New legislation also requires that all students in 6th - 12th grade provide proof of having received a Tdap vaccination. Please check with your physician to determine if your child has had a Tdap vaccine and provide written proof of vaccination to your child’s school prior to entry into middle or high school. In addition to physical exam and vaccination requirements, kindergarten, 2nd and 6th grade students must provide proof of a dental exam and kindergarten students must provide an eye exam report completed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist before entering kindergarten. If you have not made an appointment for your child’s physical exam, immunizations, dental exam and eye exam, please call today. If you have questions regarding school health requirements, please call the nurse at your child’s school.
