Healthcare at School
Your student has instant access to care whenever they feel sick at school for common conditions like: fever, sore throat, headache, abdominal pain, rash, lice, pink eye, cuts & wounds, and more!
Mental Health Screenings
The mental wellbeing of your student is more important now than ever. For students 11-and-up, you can opt them into a mental health screening (in participating districts).
Rapid On-Site Testing
If there’s a concern for flu or strep, the provider can give orders to the school health room professional to administer a rapid test. Quick test results means a quick plan of care!
Sports + Wellness Physicals
Be sure your student is ready to play with a participation physical that puts the focus on fun and wellness. Available at participating school districts each spring/summer!
