“Evidence shows that healthy students have better attendance patterns and perform better academically”.

The following health requirements apply to all children enrolled in a Chicago Public School.

Children must provide proof of required immunizations and health exams before October 15, 2018 or they will face exclusion from school.

Examination Requirements:

Physical Examination requirements due upon enrollment, or by 10/15/18.

Physical Examination must be completed within one year prior to entry to:

  • Preschool and kindergarten (physical exam and lead screening through age 6)

  • 6th grade and 9th grade (ages 5, 11, 15 for un-graded programs)

  • Any student entering CPS for the first time.

THE SPORTS PHYSICAL FORM DOES NOT COUNT TOWARDS MEDICAL COMPLIANCE AND MAY NOT BE USED IN PLACE OF THE GENERAL PHYSICAL EXAM FORM FOR 9TH GRADE. You may have this form completed in addition to the regular physical exam but not in place of it for 9th grade or new enrollment to CPS.

All students in grades 10-12 who will be participating in sports must have a physical exam or a sports physical that is completed within the last calendar year to participate in that sport. These forms should be given to the coach.

Immunization Requirements:

Meningitis Conjugate (MCV4)

  • One (1) dose of the meningitis vaccine for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades

  • Two (2) does of the meningitis vaccine for 12th grade.

  • 2nd dose must be administered at least 8 weeks after 1st dose.

Always keep a copy of these forms for your files at home.

Complete information is available below in English, Polish and Spanish.

If you have any questions, you may contact the school nurse via email using the Staff link (at right) or by phone at 773-534-1224.

We are designing a new website for
Taft High School

Educational Networks is currently designing a new website for Taft High School. It will look beautiful when we finish it. But it will take a few weeks.

What you are looking at is not your new website. It's just a temporary site that allows us to build the content areas while our designers are working on the new design. When the new design is finalized, all the content on this site will be automatically transferred to the new website, and this site will be closed. This way, your new website will already contain a lot of content from day one. Sounds exciting?

Although this temporary site is accessible on the Internet, it is not advertised anywhere. It is just our secret place that allows us to do our work.

Join Us! It will be fun!

We promise, you will love it! The new website will not only look beautiful, but it will be also very easy to update. It will be a place for the entire community. Not only the website administrators, but also teachers and staff members will be able to post information on their own sections. If you are a teacher, you will be able to easily create pages to introduce yourself to the community, build your own photo albums, upload videos, create class pages, and even post homework assignments that will be displayed not only on your class pages, but also emailed to the parents and students automatically every day.

How easy is it?

Very easy! If you use the most standard Internet services such as email and Facebook, or do online shopping on websites like Amazon.com, you are already qualified. No worries...

When do I start? How?

You can start right now! Whatever information you post on this temporary site will be automatically transferred to the new website when we launch it. And you can continue posting updates and even more information afterwards whenever you like.

Here is how:

Go to: http://tafths.enadmin.org

Just log in if you have already been provided your login credentials. If not, call our technical support team at (866) 473-0400 so that we can create your account. It will take only a minute.

The rest will be easy. Upload your profile photo, create as many new pages as you wish, create your classes, photo albums, and even your own video gallery.

After each update, come back to this website, and refresh. You will see that all the information you posted is displayed on this temporary website. And when we officially launch the new website, everything will be transferred automatically in no time!

If you need any help, call our support team at (866) 473-0400.

Welcome to Educational Networks! We look forward to seeing your pages and hearing from you!
