We are excited to announce that the School District of Beloit will be partnering with Beloit Community Health Systems (CHS) to provide onsite health services to our students. CHS will be based out of the High School and will see students on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please help me get the word out by including the following in your family newsletters:
Starting September 13th, the School District will expand our partnership with Beloit Community Health Systems (CHS) to provide onsite health care to students. Families should call (608) 361-0311 to set up an appointment at the High School. If they are established patients, they can schedule through their link.
