Principal's Message

To our Students, Parents, and Community Members,

I hope everyone enjoyed Spring Break and has returned to school ready to finish the school year on a positive note. As the weather gets nicer students have a tendency to develop spring fever so now it is very important that you continue to monitor your student's grades and talk to them about what they are doing in school.

Throughout the months of April and May our freshmen will be participating in PARCC testing. Testing will take April 25 through May 20. Students will be tested during the school day.

Here are some important dates:

  • April 25-May 20 PARCC Testing
  • April 29 - Prom
  • Weeks of May 2 and May 9 - AP Testing
  • May 10 & 11 - Senior Final Exams
  • May 17 - Graduation
  • May 30 - No School (Memorial Day)
  • May 31 - Day 1 of Final Exams
  • June 1 - Day 2 of Final Exams

Do you know that our District has an App for your smart phone? Stay engaged and informed with our free mobile app. The instructions to download the App are located in the Spotlight section of our website.

We also have a newsletter, Quick Notes, which can be sent to your email every Friday afternoon. It only takes a minute to sign-up. The sign -up page is located in the Spotlight section of our website (to the right of this letter).

Yours in Rebel Pride,

Judith Whalen

Immunization and Physical Requirements

Illinois state law requires that all students entering 9th grade have a current physical and complete immunization record. Also, students entering 12th grade are required by law to show proof of having received two doses of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine before entering the 12th grade. Students will not be able to complete the registration process and will not be able to attend school without documented proof of the meningococcal vaccine and current physical.

St. Bernard's Mobile Health Van
TFS
Free with preregistration
South-Main

Any child entering 12th grade shall show proof of having received two doses of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine prior to entering the 12th grade. The minimum intervals for administration are as follows: The first dose must be received on or after the 10th birthday; the second dose as least eight weeks after the first dose. Only one dose is required if the first dose was received at 16 years of age or older.

St. Bernard's Mobile Health van will be at T.F. South on Thursday, May 19th for those students who do not have health insurance. This service will be by appointment only, so contact Nurse Oostman at 708-585-2050 at your earliest convenience as the number of vaccines is limited. The registration form can be found on our website and must be returned no later than May 16th.

Please contact your child's primary care provider now to review your child's immunization record to be sure they are in compliance with this new requirement. Verification of this vaccine should be turned in to the school nurse as soon as possible, with a final due date of June 1, 2016.

Students will not be able to complete the registration process and therefore will not be able to attend school without correctly documented proof of the meningococcal vaccine.

Acceptable documentation of the meningococcal vaccine includes:

  • • A signed note or letter from a physician indicating the date the vaccine was given
  • • A printed copy of your child's electronic immunization record
  • • A copy of his or her school physical form that specifies the exact date(s) of the vaccine (if any corrections or additions are made to a previously dated form, it must be re-signed by the health care provider with the current date)
  • • No proof of immunity is allowed
