Physical Exams – Freshmen
All incoming freshmen and transfer students must submit a copy of a current physical and up-to-date immunization records before entering T.F. South.
The health history must be completed, signed and dated by the parent/guardian.
The physical examination portion must be filled out completely (including the immunization record, diabetes screening and approval for physical education), signed and dated by the examining physician.
The school entrance physical and the athletic physical are two different forms. The only form accepted for entrance into the ninth grade is the currently approved IDPH Certificate of Child Examination. Athletic physicals are not accepted for high school entry.
Illinois State School Code requires that all freshmen and transfer students submit a copy of a current physical and up-to-date immunization records before entering T.F. South. Students will not be allowed to complete the book pick-up process or be enrolled in District 215 without proof of health examination and immunizations. Physical forms are available at the bottom of this page.
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PARENTS AND STUDENTS REGARDING MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS
In addition to the health exam and immunizations, Illinois Public Act 099-0843 requires schools to request an Asthma Action Plan for all students diagnosed with asthma. The Asthma Action Plan must be written by your child’s physician, kept on file in the School Nurses’ Office, and be updated annually.
If you currently have an Asthma Action Plan on file for your child, no further action is needed for this current school year. If your child has asthma and does not have a plan on file, please provide a plan to the school nurse immediately. A sample Asthma Action Plan can be found in all school health offices or on the district website by clicking here:
