Attention Incoming 2020-2021 Freshmen - Letter from the School Nurse
2020-2021 9th Grade Parents,
The State of Illinois requires all 9th grade students to have a physical exam.
Due to Covid 19 and the closure of school, we are unable to offer the Free Physical Clinic and the Dental Toothmobile. The Genesis Health Group, Aledo is planning on having the following clinic days for students to come in a get their physical:
May 29, 2020 8am-3pm
June 1, 2020 8am – 3 pm
August 3rd and 5th 8am-6pm
No Appointments are necessary however it is recommended for the child to only have 1 adult guardian accompany them to their appointment and also wear a mask.
No appointments needed, can walk in.
Cost: $50.00 for school physical (Due to the cancellation of school, the free clinic is also cancelled)
Payment options are self pay only (cash/check or charge) no billing of insurance these specific days however we will bill insurance if you make an appointment for another day for wellness, if applicable. Medicaid does not pay for school physicals (will pay for wellness).
REMEMBER THIS EXAM MUST BE A SCHOOL PHYSICAL,
DO NOT GET A SPORTS PHYSICAL!! The 9th grade physical will count for their sports physical.
Your child MUST have their physical completed before registration in August. If you do not plan to take advantage of the clinic hours at Genesis Health Group, please contact your physician to make an appointment.
The Toothmobile will be rescheduled for sometime during the 2020-2021 school year.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your cooperation.
