When do I need to show proof my child is up-to-date on immunizations?

Students are required to present appropriate proof of a health examination and the immunizations against, and screenings for, preventable communicable diseases within one year prior to August, 24, 2022 if they are:

  • Entering pre-k

  • Entering kindergarten

  • Entering 6th or 9th grades; or

  • Enrolling in an Illinois school for the first time, regardless of the student's grade

What's Required?

  • Proof of immunization against meningococcal disease is required for students in grades 6 and 12.

  • All students entering twelfth grade must show proof of receiving one dose of Meningococcal vaccine after the age of 16.

  • All students entering grades six through twelve must show proof of receiving one dose of the Tdap vaccine.

  • A diabetes screening must be included as part of the health exam (though diabetes testing is not required).

  • Students between the age of one and seven must provide a statement from a physician assuring that the student was “risk-assessed” or screened for lead poisoning.

  • Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, an age-appropriate developmental screening and an age-appropriate social and emotional screening are required parts of each health examination.

Eye Examination

All students entering kindergarten or the school for the first time must present proof by October 15th of the current school year of an eye examination performed within one year.

Dental Examination

All students entering kindergarten, second, sixth and ninth grades must present proof by May 15th of the current school year of having been examined by a licensed dentist within the last 18 months.

What if my child needs some prescription or non-prescription medication?

Medications may be given to a child at school in an emergency or if it is required in order for the child to remain in daily attendance for comfort or as a necessity. It is expected that in most instances medication will be given at home and not in school. Our school medication policy follows the recommended guidelines of the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education. Students requiring medications in school are required to have this medication consent form completed and turned in to their school nurse.

Head Lice

In accordance with recommendations from the The American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Association of School Nurses and the CDC, students with head lice are not excluded from school. A student with an active head lice infestation likely has had the infestation for a month or more and by the time it is discovered and poses little risk to others from the infestation. Parents should contact their school nurse for a recommended treatment plan.

Undesignated Epinephrine Injectors (UEIs)

The District maintains and administers the undesignated medication(s) identified below in accordance with State and federal law:

  • Undesignated Epinephrine Injectors (UEIs)

Public Act 97-0361 allows schools in Illinois to voluntarily maintain a supply of emergency epinephrine auto-injectors for students, staff, and visitors who do not have a known allergy and require epinephrine as a rescue medication. A school nurse, administrator or trained staff member may administer epinephrine to any individual that he or she, in good faith, professionally believes is having an anaphylactic reaction and who does not have an Emergency Action Plan in place.

It is the policy of Belvidere School District 100 to provide undesignated epinephrine auto-injectors at each building, to be administered by a school nurse, administrator, or staff member trained in the administration of epinephrine to any student believed to be having an anaphylactic reaction (during the hours outlined below). The Emergency Epinephrine Act (P.A. 97-361) provides civil protection for school employees who are appropriately trained to administer epinephrine.

Availability Plan:

  • Elementary- 7:15-3:00

  • Middle School- 8:00-3:45

  • High School- 7:30-3:15

Exclusions for Undesignated Medication Availability:

  • Parents/Guardians/Community Members/Anyone else that is not a District 100 Student or Employee

  • Any Athletic Events or school sponsored events outside of the designated hours listed above

  • Under the care or supervision their parent/guardian or another designated organization

  • Non- School Sponsored Activities (even when the nurse is present)

More detailed medical information is provided in the District Handbook.
