Boyle County Schools Announces Supplemental Health Services

Supplemental Health Services

Boyle County Schools announced supplemental health services, effective immediately.

The district nurse practitioner is able to provide optional health services to students whose parents/guardians give written consent for these services.

If a child is assessed at school by the nurse practitioner, there is no cost to the family for the school health visit.

Supplemental services available at school may include:

  • Acute care visits (including strep testing, flu testing ,ear infections, etc.); and/or
  • Well-child physical exams (if overdue).

If you want the optional health services to be available to your child while at school, complete the Consent for Health Services and Patient Health History forms and return them to the school nurse or district nurse practitioner.

Boyle County Schools recommends that all students have a primary care provider. The Center for Disease Control reports, “Healthy children are better learners, and academic achievement bears a lifetime of benefits for health.”

*These new health services are an additional option to supplement the health care services your child is already receiving from his/her primary care provider and are not designed to replace primary care services.
