Please click here for the Illinois Certificate of Religious Exemption Form
Parents or legal guardians who are requesting a religious exemption to immunizations or examinations must use this form for students entering kindergarten, sixth, or ninth grade. This form may not be used for exemptions due to personal or philosophical reasons. Illinois law does not allow for such exemptions.
Please review the Illinois State Board of Education’s Back-to-School Immunizations and Compliance with State Law to make sure that your child is in compliance with state law.
All students entering kindergarten, second grade, sixth grade, and new to the district must be in compliance with the state’s minimum requirements. Proof of immunization must be submitted to the school nurse with the physician and parent signed State of Illinois Certificate of Child Health Examination by October 15th. In accordance with state law, a student that is not in compliance with these mandates will be EXCLUDED from school until proof is obtained.
