New to Illinois Schools

Each student that is new to Illinois must have a physical, dental, and eye exam accompanied by immunization records no matter what grade they are entering. 

  •         The exams do not have to be performed by an Illinois doctor. 
  •         The doctor must fill out the Illinois physical, dental, and eye exam forms located below.

 

HOMELESS STUDENTS (McKinney-Vento)

A student is considered “homeless” if the student is presently living in a shelter, sharing housing with relatives or others, in a motel/hotel or car, or otherwise lacking adequate housing. All homeless students have a right to immediate school enrollment, transportation services, and access to all academic and extracurricular activities offered to all students. If you have questions about whether a student qualifies as a homeless student or about the rights of a homeless student, please contact the MCUSD709 District Homeless Liaison, Stephanie Brown at [email protected]

Thanks to an agreement between District 709 and the Morton Public Library District, students are eligible for a Morton Public card if they meet the following criteria:

1. The student lives in the 709 school district and you pay taxes to the Morton Library.
2. Your student lives in the 709 school district and you don't pay taxes to ANY library, but your student is enrolled in the 709 school district.

If you pay taxes to another library, you must go to that library to get a card. That card can then be used at Morton Public Library.

If you are unsure whether you meet the above criteria, go ahead and complete the form and the library will contact you if necessary.
