June News from the Health Office
State of Illinois Vaccination Requirements
All students entering Kindergarten must have evidence of two varicella vaccinations and two MMR vaccinations prior to the first day of school.
All students entering 6th grade must have evidence of a completed Hepatitis B vaccination series, a Tdap booster, two varicella vaccinations, two MMR vaccinations, and a dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine.
Health Information for 5th Grade students
A health packet will be sent out this month for students that will be in 6th grade next year. This packet will contain a copy of mandatory physical exam information, dental exam information and interscholastic athletics requirements.
All of the proper health forms are also available at the Brentwood Health Office. If you have any questions please call (847) 472-3445. Any completed physical exams may be turned in to the Brentwood Health Office before the end of the year. They will be forwarded to the Junior High. A completed physical exam must be turned in before students can compete in sports at the Junior High.
Extra Clothing Needed
Students need extra clothing at school for various reasons and are sent to the nurse’s office to change. It is helpful for students to keep their own change of clothes in their backpack. We also attempt to have clothes available in my office and I would appreciate donations of gently used sweat pants and shorts that can be used by students who do not have extra clothing at school. Also, if your child has borrowed clothes from my office, please wash and return as soon as possible.
