Dear Parents,
I am excited to share that we are partnering with Goodside Health to bring on-demand telehealth services to our school! Through our partnership, your child can be tested and treated for Strep, Flu, and COVID-19 as well as sore throat, headache, skin rash, pink eye, upset stomach, and the common cold. Goodside Health even allows children to receive age-appropriate mental health screenings with parental consent. 
The medical providers can treat all students regardless of residency or insurance status with most visits delivered at little to no cost to families and translation services are available. Parents can also be included in the telehealth visit without having to leave work!
We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. This program is optional. You may click the button below to learn more about this program and the services included.
Thank you,
Savanah Molinar, BSN RN
