Happy National School-Based Health Care Awareness Month!
Study after study has shown that school based health centers help reduce lateness and missed time at school and work, increase grades, and better connect students, teachers, and parents. This is so important… because in order to do well in school, students must be present, healthy, and ready to learn! And what better way is there to help children stay healthy, than to provide some of that care at school, where students spend the majority of their time!
Did you know that Caroline County is the only public school system in the entire state to offer school based health center services in each of their schools! Your child has access to the Choptank Community Health School Based Health Center at GES! The GES SBHC is open every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8am-4 pm. Services include treatment of acute minor illnesses such as strep throat, ear infections, and rash, evaluation and management of sports and related injuries, asthma care and various other health and dental education.
Appointments can be made through the school nurse’s office by sending a note to school with your child, or by calling 410-479-4395. The School Based Health Center can be reached during office hours via telephone at 410-482-9148.
