Complete physical exam for all foreign exchange students in all grades must be performed in Illinois.
Host-Parent must complete the health history portion and sign/date the form. This is NOT the same as a sports physical but can also qualify as a sports physical.
All immunizations must be up-to-date. (This should come from the agency. If the child is missing an immunization, they will need to go to the Health Dept. or your physician to obtain the vaccination. The school nurse will let you know if this is necessary.)
