We want our children to have access to healthcare providers who specialize in preventative care and can address chronic conditions and health issues that are unique to children. It is imperative for parents and caregivers to submit health forms for students as soon as possible so they receive much needed health services.
All fillable forms must have an original parent or guardian signature; an electronic signature is not acceptable. By signing these documents, you certify that you are authorized to complete the documents, and the information provided is true and accurate.
Please visit the Office of Diverse Learner Supports and Services website to learn about 504 and IEP related supports.
Student Health Forms Booklet
The Student Health Forms Booklet includes all the forms that parents and caregivers must complete for their students at the beginning of the school year. Among the forms that the booklet includes are the Student Medical Information Form, Vision and Dental Consent Forms, Emergency Contact Form, Media Release Form and School Messaging Form.
Download the forms that are required based on your health condition, medications, or the health requirements for enrolling at your school. Bring these forms to your health care provider and return them to your school. CPS staff will review the forms and may contact the medical provider to clarify services required during school hours.
While these forms often say “physician,” they may also be completed by other medical providers (MD, DO, APRN or PA).
Need Support with Public Benefits?
The CPS Children and Family Benefits Unit (CFBU) connects CPS families to free or low-cost health insurance (Medicaid) and to food through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). In addition to providing application and redetermination assistance, CFBU also provides parent-focused education to help families maintain and understand how to use their public benefits.
For more information, contact your Network's Children and Family Benefits Coordinator or call the Healthy CPS Hotline at 773-553-KIDS (5437).
