    **IMPORTANT NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR**
    Please be aware that the State of Illinois has added NEW immunization requirements for the 2019-20 school year. Any student entering the 12th grade shall show proof of receiving 2 doses of Meningococcal immunization MCV4.
    Minimum intervals for administration: The first dose received on or after the 11th birthday; second dose on or after the 16th birthday. The required interval must be at 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. No proof of immunity allowed.
    Vaccinations not given at proper intervals will not be considered compliant with the Illinois School Code.


    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.

We have a set itinerary, kayaking, optional surfing and a coffee plantation tour in store. The student does not have to have a Spanish class, just the desire to visit one of the happiest countries in the world. Please email rdrobny@leyden.212.org or mmartinez@leyden212.org with any questions or concerns. Have a Leyden Pride day.

    ANNUAL MUSIC OF THE HOLIDAYS CONCERT
    The music department's 25th annual Music of the Holidays Concert is on Wednesday, December 11, at 7 p.m. in the West Leyden auditorium. Hundreds of dedicated music students will perform seasonal favorites, to include the "Hallelujah Chorus." Please join us for Leyden’s annual tradition of ringing in the holidays...and it's free. Ho, Ho, Ho!

    A PAIR OF CHRISTMAS CAROLS
    Leyden Theatre Proudly Presents "A Pair of Christmas Carols," The Timeless Christmas told in two very different ways. Act 1 a children's' musical "A Christmas Carol in HogPatch Holler" with music and lyrics by Mark A. Pence This family-friendly show brings everyone's favorite storybook characters to life as they revel in holiday cheer, goodwill and tell the story in a way everyone can understand.

    Act 2 A Christmas Carol in 9 Staves is a more traditional telling of the story in which the three spirits of Christmas visit the miserly Ebeneezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve and whisk him away on a journey through memories of his past and glimpses of his future. In one haunted evening, Scrooge sees the error of his ways and repents just in time for a glorious Christmas morning.

    Each performance promises a visit and picture with a very special Leyden Santa as well as a Cookies and Milk intermission.

    When: Dec 13, 7 PM Dec 14, 3 PM 7 PM **Special Children's Performance Sunday, December 15, 3 PM**

    FOOD FOR FINES
    During the month of November, all students can get their fines waived if they bring in a canned good or nonperishable item. We are donating items to the Leyden food pantry.

To be eligible to complete the FAFSA, the student must have a social security number.
