Health and Wellness Requirements

Our top priority is keeping all students safe and healthy. In order to do so, CPS has specific health requirements for enrollment. These include:

  • Immunizations and physical health exams for some grade levels. 
  • An eye exam for some students. 
  • A dental exam for some students. 

To find out what's required for your child, please review the Minimum Health Requirements.

Health Forms

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).
