• Student Health Centers
     
     

    The Rockingham County Student Health Centers are located in each of the four traditional high schools. The mission of the Student Health Centers is to improve the health and school performance of Rockingham County students by providing comprehensive health care through education, treatment, prevention and referral.  Funding for the centers is provided by the local hospitals, Rockingham County Schools and grants. The Student Health Centers are a United Way of Rockingham County agency. Parental consent is necessary for treatment except in the event of an emergency.

     

    The Student Health Centers offer a wide range of medical services.  The centers are open school days from 7:30am-4:00pm and are staffed by a multidisciplinary team of providers that includes: Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, Registered Nurses, Mental Health Counselors, Social Worker, Health Educators, Nutritionists and School Psychologists from the Rockingham County School System.  Physicians volunteer to serve as medical directors and review the charts of students treated.

     

    Together the team can diagnose and treat injuries and illnesses, monitor chronic diseases in conjunction with a student’s Primary Care Provider, provide sports physicals, immunizations, nutrition and mental health counseling as well as health education.  The staff works together to keep our students healthy so that they can graduate from high school and start their futures with a continued focus on wellness. The Student Health Centers result in improved school attendance thus increasing students’ chances for academic success.
