Health Exams & Immunizations


District 401 students must present proof they have undergone all health examinations and immunizations as required by state law and District policy.

Failure to comply by the first day of school will result in the student's exclusion from school until the required health forms are presented to the District. (See Section 7:100 in the Board of Education's District Policy Manual.)

New students who enroll after the first day of school shall have 30 days following enrollment to comply with all applicable health examination and immunization regulations.

Please note that any homeless child shall be immediately admitted, even if the child or child’s parent/guardian is unable to produce immunization and health records normally required.
