All incoming Kindergarteners and students who are new to the district are required to have a current Illinois School Health Examination form completed with updated immunizations on file in the nurse’s office on or before October 15, 2020 regardless of remote or in-person learning. If you have already completed your child’s physical and immunization requirements, please mail a copy to Churchill Elementary School Attn: Nurse.

All Kindergarteners and 2nd graders are required to have an Illinois Dental Examination form completed. The due date for the dental examination is May 15th of the current school year. We will accept exams that were completed within 18 months of the due date. For the 2020-2021 school year, we will accept dental exams completed from November 15th, 2019- May 15th, 2021.

All Kindergarteners are required to have a professional eye exam completed. We ask that these are completed prior to October 15th of the current school year but will happily accept them at any point during the school year.

Medication at School
If your child requires medication during the school day, whether it be prescription or non-prescription, a school medication administration form needs to be completed by your child’s physician. You can turn in the completed medication form along with the medication, in its original packaging, labeled with your child’s name to the nurse’s office.

When to Keep Your Child Home
In efforts to keep our students and staff safe and healthy, we ask that if your child has a fever, flu-like symptoms, or has vomiting/diarrhea, they should NOT be in school until they are fever/symptom free for at least 24 hours, without needing medication. Please do not send your child to school if they are ill. When calling in an absence for your child, kindly let the office know if your child is being kept home due to fevers or flu-like symptoms.
As summer comes to an end and the school year begins, it is not uncommon for us to see an increase in flu, cold, and respiratory illnesses. Please keep the following preventative measures in mind to help keep our students, staff, and community safe and healthy:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds. This is especially important after you’ve coughed, sneezed, or blown your nose, before and after eating, and anytime after coming into contact with someone sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Do your best to cough or sneeze into a tissue or the elbow of your sleeve
- Avoid close contact with others who are sick
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects like your cellphone, laptop, desks, and door handles.
- Most importantly, STAY HOME if you are not well or feel sick.
