Physical RequirementsReturning students entering the Early Childhood Program, kindergarten, sixth, or ninth grade must complete a physical exam and have the physical exam form on file with the school district before the first day of school. Students who do not have physical exams by the first day of school will be not be allowed to attend school. This policy will be strictly enforced. Physical exams must be done within one year of the first day of school. The Urbana School District may accept physicals transferred from another school district for transfer students as long as the physical was done within one year of the first day of school and it meets Illinois requirements. Athletic physicals will NOT be accepted. Physicals, dental services and more are available at the Urbana School-based Health Center, which is open to Urbana school children up to age 18 and located adjacent to Urbana High School. For more information, visit the Urbana School-based Health Center website. The following information lists recent changes to the physical examination form and items that must be included on the form. Your child must have a correctly completed physical form to attend school. Incomplete or incorrect forms will not be accepted by the Urbana School District. You may wish to print this information and bring it with you to the doctor’s office for your child’s physical exam to make sure the form is completed correctly. Items which must be completed on physical forms Physical form (pdf) // forma en Español (pdf) The physical exam form (also called the Certificate of Child Health Examination form) was changed because of changes in the Illinois Child Health Examination Code. By law, health examinations for all public, private/independent and parochial school students in Illinois must include:
Physical examination which needs to include an evaluation of: height, weight, blood pressure, BMI, skin, eyes, ears, nose, throat, mouth/dental, cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, genito-urinary, neurological, musculoskeletal, spinal examination, nutritional status, lead screening and other evaluations thought necessary by the doctor. The state strongly recommends that evaluations include hemoglobin or hematocrit, urinalysis, and sickle cell. The doctor should list any medications the child takes routinely, diet restrictions/needs, special equipment needed, or other needs and known allergies.The medical history section must be completely filled out and signed by the parent or legal guardian of the student. At or about the same time that he/she receives a health examination, every child must present proof to the school district of receiving immunizations against preventable communicable diseases as required by Illinois law (Section 665 of the Child Health Examination Code). A diabetes screening must be done, and the doctor or health care provider must write the results of the diabetes risk assessment on the physical form. Lead screening must be done at the health examination for children age six years or younger before they can attend preschool, nursery school, kindergarten or other child care program. If your health care provider does not do a lead screening, the school nurse can do it. Your child will have to take a blood test if you answer “Yes” or “Don’t Know” for any single question on the screening or if he/she has lived in a high risk ZIP code.
