Kindergarten Health Requirements

A health exam, age-appropriate immunizations, a dental exam, and an eye exam are required for all Illinois kindergarten students. Please schedule appointments as soon as possible to avoid the rush that happens right before school starts. You can turn in paperwork to school anytime or at your required summer registration date. Please hand in all paperwork by the first day of school!

  • Health Exam and Immunizations (shots) by your health care practitioner are required within one year prior to your student starting 6th grade. Parents must complete and sign the health history questions on the top ⅓ of the page. All immunizations must be up to date and recorded on the front of the form. Separately printed immunization pages are acceptable. Deadline: October 15, 2020.

  • Dental Exam by a dentist is required for all kindergarten students in Illinois. You may use any dentist you choose, just ask them to fill out the required Illinois form. Dental Safari will come to Jonesboro school in March of 2021. You may sign permission for your child to receive an exam and cleaning at that time. Dental Safari will satisfy the dental exam requirement if you choose this option. Due May 1, 2021.

  • Eye Exam by an optometrist or opthamologist is required for all kindergarten students in Illinois. Please call your choice of eye doctor early; these appointments fill up fast. School-based vision screenings do not count for this exam. Due October 15, 2020.
