Multi-Student Family Credit on Registration Fees
A family credit will be automatically applied to registration fees owed for families that have three or more students actively enrolled in Valley View Public Schools. The credit will be applied when the registration fees are assessed, immediately reducing the fees owed for each student. The credit does not consider students enrolled in Pre-School tuition-based programs. There would be no additional paperwork required to be filled out by the parent or guardian. The credit would be applied as follows:
- Elementary Students (Grades PK-5): $10 per student registration fee credit
- Middle School Students (Grades 6-8): $15 per student registration fee credit
- High School Students (Grades 9-12): $20 per student registration fee credit
Why is the district offering the multistudent credit?
The Board of Education has approved a fee credit in order to help defray the cost of school fees for families in the community with three or more actively enrolled students.
Which families are eligible for the multistudent credit?
Families where the primary guardian has 3 or more students actively enrolled in Valley View schools (where all students associated with that guardian name share one residential address) will get the credit applied to each active student’s registration fee. The credit does not consider students enrolled in Pre-School tuition-based programs.
Do I need to apply for the credit in order to receive it for all my students?
No. Each family will be evaluated to determine if there are three or more actively enrolled students linked to that guardian.
Will I be able to see the amount that is applied to my student’s fee account so I can verify I received it?
Yes. The item will show as an adjustment on your fee statement.
What if my family structure has changed during the school year? Are my students eligible for the credit?
Yes. If the structure of the family changes over the course of the year, the credit will be applied to all active students in the family once the Enrollment Office has completed the registration process and the new student in the family has begun attending a Valley View assigned attendance center. No forms are required to receive the credit in this situation. The credit does not qualify for a fee refund.
My family registered three or more students in the district AFTER school has started. Will my student receive the full credit amount?
Yes. The full credit is applied at any point of the school year.
What if families have dual guardianship situations for actively enrolled students?
In this situation, the guardianship documentation will need to be reviewed and evaluated to determine if it meets the credit criteria.
Valley View School District houses and educates over 15,000 students in the Bolingbrook and Romeoville communities. By law we are required to ensure that all students are immunized per state and federal guidelines. Beyond that, we care that all of our students feel their best and are given the best opportunity to learn.
Student Health History Form
The Student Health History Form is required at time of registration for every student each year. Health conditions change as children grow, which is why this form is vital to keeping our nursing staff informed about your child. This form will be mailed home with fee letters in July. Home managed medical care such as medications taken at home should be noted on this form in the event of an emergency requiring medical attention at school.
Any student entering Preschool, Kindergarten, 6th grade or 9th grade, must submit a completed physical examination form at the beginning of the school year. Children in self-contained special education programs where grade levels are not assigned must provide completed physical examinations within one (1) year prior to the school year in which the child reaches the age of five (5), eleven (11), or fifteen (15). All physicals must be submitted for Preschool, Kindergarten, 6th and 9th grade students by October 15, 2022 and all MUST:
- show proof of diabetes screening/evaluation
- show proof of lead screening/evaluation (Preschool and Kindergarten)
- be signed and dated by a physician
- have the parent portion on the back side of the physical filled in and signed by parent/guardian to meet the Illinois Department of Public Health compliance guidelines
- have the latest revised version of the Illinois Department of Public Health Certificate of Child Health Examination (rev. 11/15) which is the only recognized form to be submitted to school for medical compliance
Sports Physicals are required annually if participating in sports. The required physical exam for 6th and 9th grade students will suffice for a sport physical but a sport physical WILL NOT suffice for the required 6th and 9th grade physical exam.
Health records are reviewed routinely for all grade levels. Anyone not in compliance at any grade level is subject to exclusion from school on October 15, 2022. The student’s Parent/Guardian will be contacted, by the school nurse, if your child is not in compliance due to missing physicals and/or immunizations. The Illinois Department of Public Health requires that all students who are not in compliance (missing physical or immunizations) will be EXCLUDED FROM SCHOOL on October 15, 2022.
It is the District’s utmost priority to keep the entire school community safe and healthy during this pandemic. As such, the District intends to adhere to the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Joint Guidance Document regarding proper attendance and quarantine procedures. For more information, please visit www.vvsd.org for up to date information.
In addition to School Code Section 665.210 Proof of Immunizations, immunization requirements are as follows:
ALL Grade Levels

- Varicella/chicken pox (1 dose for PreK, 2 doses or proof of disease occurrence for K-12 & STEP)
