Health Services

School nurses address major and minor health concerns experienced by students. They provide basic first aid as needed, preventative care, medication administration, vision and hearing screenings, and health education. Also, the nurses maintain records for physicals and immunizations to ensure a safe environment in the school system.

LTHS employs a certified school nurse and four registered nurses.

Health & Dental Requirements

All students must submit proof of compliance with physical examination and immunization requirements. A sports physical does not meet the physical examination requirements for incoming freshman students. Students will not receive a course schedule and will not be able to attend school until all required health information is on file.

Transfer students: Transfer students must present a health exam that was completed within one year prior to entry into an Illinois school. The transferring health/physical exam must also include the dates of all previous immunizations since birth.

Incoming Freshman: Beginning with the school year, all students entering high school as freshmen will also need to submit proof of a completed dental examination.

Student Accident Report

District 205 provides medical insurance for any students enrolled at LTHS who are injured in an accident on school premises. The medical insurance policy covers accidents that occur while students are at school during the normal school day as well as when they are involved in school sponsored activities, including sports. The District 205 student medical insurance is a secondary policy. If the student is not covered by his/her family policy, District 205 student medical insurance will act as a primary policy. In addition, parents have the option to purchase additional medical insurance which covers students 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays. Please contact the Business Office for more information. The additional insurance is also a secondary policy but will act as a primary policy if the student does not have family medical insurance. All student accidents are to be reported to the Business Office as soon as possible for prompt processing.
