9th grade physicals are required by law. A sports physical will NOT be required for the 9th grade because it is included on the Illinois State Health Exam form. Please be aware that it is good for 1 year only! That means if your student plays a spring sport you will want to schedule the physical for June or July. A sports physical will NOT take the place of a 9th grade physical. Proof of physical is required by the first day of school. Any questions, please feel free to call me at 815-220-2738!
