What is a School-Based Student Health Center?

A School-Based Health Center is much more than the traditional school nurse's office. It is a medical facility located in the school that offers many health and medical services like your doctor's office (see list below). We do not replace your primary doctor and all of our services are provided at the school. The student health centers are operated by Siskiyou Community Health Center through an agreement with Three Rivers School District.

Who works at the Student Health Center?

Our staff includes a Physician Assistant (PA) who can treat most health problems and prescribe medications, and a registered nurse (RN). There is also a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), at Illinois Valley High School and Lorna Byrne Middle School. Brief mental health counseling and/or referral to mental health/drug and alcohol services are also available. All staff are supervised by and have support of the Siskiyou Community Health Center physicians and medical doctor.

What services are offered?

We can take care of most of your student's health care needs at the Student Health Center. If there is an emergency or service we do not provide, we contact 911 or will make a referral to another health care provider. When the health center is not open or staff is unavailable, school personnel will follow the school guidelines for all emergency situations.
