Student Health Center
Serving all Clarkston Community Schools students & Staff
When students aren't feeling well, they have a harder time learning. Providing families with access to health care at school puts kids in a better position to learn. Through a unique partnership with Clarkston Medical Group, we can now accommodate most common medical needs of all Clarkston Community Schools students and staff in our on-campus clinics at North Sashabaw Elementary School and Sashabaw Middle School.
According to the School-Based Health Alliance, school-based health centers like ours:
- expand access to quality medical care for those in need of medical services, regardless of ability to pay
- improve health and school performance
- reduce hospitalizations and ER visits
- increase high school graduation rates
- decrease school discipline cases and depression rates
Clarkston Community Schools Health Center is a school-based health center operated and funded by Clarkston Medical Group.
The CCS Health Center can serve as your child's primary care doctor if needed or can be used to supplement services that their primary care doctor provides.
We will always respect your wishes for the care of your child. Only students with signed consent and registration forms may be treated at the school health center and parents will always be contacted again prior to any student's visit.
To be clear, no student will ever be seen or treated for any reason without the knowledge and consent of the parent or guardian.
Because illness is often unpredictable, parents who would like to take advantage of the center should complete their student medical information before an appointment is ever needed by downloading the attached information packet and returning it to school with a copy of the parent's driver's license and insurance card. If you would like your child to be eligible to receive care at the health center, please complete and return the completed forms and copies in an envelope. A new registration packet must be completed every school year.
For any students under 18 years of age, it is necessary to have parental consent for services to be provided. Parents will also be contacted at the time of service for permission.
