  PTHS BACK TO SCHOOL NOTICE: First Day Exclusion Policy  
     

Forest Park, IL...On August 18th, 2011 Proviso Township High Schools will welcome all students back for the 2011-2012 school year. Freshmen orientation is set for Wednesday, August 17th.

Before reporting back to school, all PTHS 209 students must have at least a 9th grade Illinois physical and up-to-date immunizations on file.

In an effort to ensure the health and safety of all PTHS 209 students, and to ensure immediate compliance with state law and Illinois School Code, PTHS 209 has a “First Day Exclusion Policy.” Under this policy, no student will be admitted on the first day of school without having their 9th grade Illinois physical and current immunizations on file. Parents must be sure their students’ physicals are complete and includes details of the students’ health history. Parents must answer ALL of the questions on the physical form, sign and date the form, and complete diabetes screening questions attached. These things must be completed in order for students to begin the first day of school. Students will not be able to attend school until the physicals are complete and immunizations are current.

In previous years, students and parents had until Oct 15th to complete immunizations and back-to-school physicals. This is no longer the case. In order to ensure compliance with state policy and to avoid disruption in the school year, PTHS 209 students must have a current health exam (9th grade physical) and current immunizations before being admitted to school on the first day.

Proviso East students may contact their School Based Health Center for an appointment at 708.202.9522. Proviso West Students and PMSA students may contact available clinics within the area. Please ensure that your student is current and up to date before school starts.

Freshmen Orientation – Wednesday, August 17th at 7:50 a.m.
First Day of School District wide – Thursday, August 18th @ 7:50 a.m.
