The Medical Compliance Deadline is October 15, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

All School District 189 students must be in medical compliance by October 15, 2021. Medical compliance differs by grade level of the student but may include updated immunizations and a physical. If your child needs additional medical attention in order to be compliant, you received a letter in the mail or a phone call from the school nurse providing details.

If your child needs care to become medically compliant, please seek one of the following resources:

  • Vivian Adams’ School-Based Clinic (501 Katherine Dunham Place) will be performing physicals by appointment on Wednesday and Friday mornings. No appointment is needed for immunizations, which are performed daily during the business hours of 8:00 am-12:00 pm and 1:00-4:00 pm. 

  • SIUE We Care Clinic (601 James R. Thompson Blvd, Bldg D) also performs physicals. In some cases, these physicals may be provided at your school if you have a consent form completed and provide a copy of the child's insurance card. Please refer to communication from your school for details. SIUE We Care charges $50 for physicals if the family does not have insurance.

  • Or you can complete the "Consent to Enroll" form which will authorize East Side Health District to provide these services on-site at your child's school.

Parents, please contact your school if you need further assistance. All district students must meet the medical compliance rules by October 15th. Thank you for your cooperation.
