Hillside Health Services

​Hillside School Health Services

Hillside School’s health office is staffed by a Registered Nurse. The nurse provides emergency care for students who are injured at school or during school-related activities. The nurses also collaborate with parents to address the needs of chronically ill children so that the children can remain in school. Health office procedures and requirements are regulated by Illinois School Code and the Illinois Department of Public Health.

PHYSICAL/DENTAL/EYE EXAMINATIONS AND IMMUNIZATIONS

Physical, dental and eye examinations and immunizations, prescribed by State Law, are required of students in the categories below.  Parents are requested to have their children examined by a licensed practitioner and to return physical, dental and eye examination forms and immunizations records to school before the school year begins.  All physical exams and immunizations must be filed by the first day of the school year, or by district policy, the student will be excluded from school.  Forms can be found under the following link:
