Medical Exclusion Day 

Medical Exclusion Day for Sunnybrook School District 171 was October 12th, 2018.  Illinois State Law requires that all Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 6th grade students, and new students transferring into an Illinois school have an Illinois school physical on file. All students must have a complete shot record on file. If your child transfers from another Illinois school and is not compliant with their medical documents, they will not be able to start school until they have all documents on file. If your student is transferring from a school that is out of state, they have 30 days to become medically compliant. 

Cold vs. Flu

Cold and flu season are upon us. Please remember to keep students home if they have a fever. Students must be fever free for 24 hours without the help of a fever reducer. If students are vomiting, please keep them home. Please see the link below regarding flu and cold symptoms:
