Health Services Office - Student Physical Exam Forms and Immunizations Records

 

The Maine South Health Services office will be an important resource for you and your child. The school nurses are located in the Health office and provide services to students who become ill during the school day. We are also responsible for maintaining student physical exam forms and immunizations records.

I have linked some important information regarding the health and immunization requirements for your incoming 9th grade student. All incoming 9th grade students must have a current physical examination and up to date immunizations on file in Health Services in order to attend Maine South High School. Maine South High School~ District 207 has a policy of first day exclusion. This means that students who do not have a current physical exam and immunizations records on file will be excluded from school until such requirement is met. Please return the completed and signed health forms which includes the health history before July 15th or as soon as you can before the first day of school. It is important to note the State of Illinois Certificate of Child Examination form can be used as a sports physical but the IHSA Pre-participation Examination form will not be accepted as a freshman physical. If your student is planning to participate in sports, please make a copy of the physical and send to the Athletic Department for their file.

Please read Class of 2022 Physical and Immunizations Requirement Letter.  I am also sharing the  School Based Health Center Welcome Letter along with Scope of Services our clinic has to offer. 

We look forward to having you son or daughter here at Maine South.  If you have any questions, please visit our Health Office Page or do not hesitate to call or email our Nurse, Brenda Keeley at 847-692-8199 or bkeeley1@maine207.org.

While the students are checking out the fair, the parents will have an opportunity to meet with our principal, Dr. Ben Collins, to help begin your journey of having a high schooler at Maine South.
