• In an effort to ensure the health and safety of all students and to ensure compliance with state law and Illinois School Code, Freeport School District 145 has established “First Day Exclusion”. Under Board Policy 7:100, students will not be admitted on the first day of school of the 2019-2020 school year if they don’t have the required Illinois physical and current immunizations on file. If you are the parent or guardian of a Freeport School District student, please arrange for any required physicals and immunizations with a medical provider as soon as possible.

    If you have any questions or require clarification, please contact your child’s school nurse, the FSD Enrollment Office, or the FSD Pupil Personnel Department.
