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.
