    CONGRATULATIONS
    Congratulations to the parents of Kaya Kozlowski and Mario Perez for winning a $50 Visa gift card! All parents who turned in their child's physical or meningitis vaccination forms prior to the June deadline were entered into the raffle. If you have not turned in your child's meningitis or physical form please do so by October 1st. If your child does not turn their medical forms they can be excluded for school. All forms should be turned in to the nurse's office.

    THANK YOU!

    Thank you to the senior parents and families who attend our Planning and Paying for College program on September 10. If you missed the presentation, you can find the information posted under Student Services on the website.

    SENIOR PARENTS: If your child’s plan is to attend a postsecondary school (2-year, 4-year, vocational or technical), you will want to complete the FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid - if your child is eligible. Plan to attend FAFSA Fest at either campus for help in completing your FAFSA!
    October 9, 2019: “FAFSA Fest” 6:00 p.m. @ West Leyden
    October 10, 2019: “FAFSA Fest” 6:00 p.m. @ East Leyden

    ALL PARENTS:
    Please encourage your child to attend the 2019 College Fair hosted by East Leyden Student Services after school on Wednesday, September 18. Students will have the opportunity to visit with representatives from 25 different Illinois colleges/universities. It’s never too early to begin exploring your options!

    FRESHMEN PARENTS: Freshmen students completed their second Group Guidance lesson with counselors. The students explored different learning strategies that can support them in “doing their best” in all of their classes this year. Be sure to ask them which learning strategy they plan to try this month!

    INCOMING FRESHMAN PHYSICALS
    By Illinois state law (school code, section 27-8.1), all incoming freshman students must have a physical examination taken within a year prior to entering 9th grade. As approved by District 212 Board of Education, all freshman medical forms are due in the East Leyden High School Health Office by June 3, 2019. After the June 3rd deadline, a progressive scale of late fees will apply for freshman medical forms as follows:

    -$30.00 late fee from June 4 through June 30th
    -$40.00 late fee from July 1 through July 31st
    -$50.00 late fee after August 1st


    All late fees will be due and payable no later than Friday, August 5, 2019. Students may not start school until all medical forms are turned in and checked for completion by the school health aide. Keep in mind that a sports physical does not fulfill the requirement for a freshman physical.


    Vaccinations not given at proper intervals will not be considered compliant with the Illinois School Code.
    Please make your student’s physical examination appointment NOW so that late fees can be avoided. It is getting to be a very busy time of year for doctors’ offices and you must allow time to obtain an appointment.
