Trojans Care Clinic

The HSSD - in collaboration with CHI St. Vincent - is pleased to open the Trojans Care Clinic at the HSSD Welcome Center (702 Main Street)! The Trojans Care Clinic is now open on Tuesdays and Fridays, from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. The Trojans Care Clinic is a school-based health center, which is like having an on-campus doctor’s office and/or an extension of a Convenient Care Clinic.


The Trojans Care Clinic will provide the following types of care:

-Preventative Care, 

-Sick/Urgent Care (which includes Flu Swabs and Strep Tests, and exams for Ear and Sinus Infections and Coughs/Colds), 

-COVID-19 PCR Tests (*Trojan students and staff members will still work with School Nurses and/or the District POC for COVID-19 to take rapid COVID-19 tests at schools, as needed)

-Chronic Disease Management, 

-Assessment of an Array of Injuries common to students- Sprains, Strains, etc.

-and other Medical Services that promote general health and wellness for Trojan families. 


Offering medical services on campus will help to ensure that all Trojan students and families have access to the healthcare service they need regardless of their family’s financial situation or proximity to a healthcare facility. An on-site school clinic also allows students to see a healthcare provider during the school day, and (in some situations) does not even require parents to miss work in order to take students to an appointment. Services at the Trojans Care Clinic will be provided by CHI St. Vincent healthcare providers - including a Nurse Practitioner and/or a Physician Assistant. 


Parents/Guardians must enroll their students before they can see a healthcare provider at the Trojans Care Clinic. 

Parents/Guardians will complete an enrollment form to ensure that their students can be seen at the clinic and/or transported to the Clinic.

How does a student receive treatment at the Trojans Care Clinic?

Parents/Guardians should complete the Clinic Enrollment Form above for each student, and return it to the School Nurse at each school. Our HSSD School Nurses will send forms to the Trojans Care Clinic. If the forms are completed ahead of time, the process would be very simple for having students treated at the Clinic when they are sick. Printed copies of the forms will also be available at the Clinic for families to fill out in person during a visit.


Students cannot receive treatment at the Trojans Care Clinic without completed Clinic Enrollment Forms for each student.


How would a family use/visit/receive treatment at the Clinic for their students?

If a child becomes sick at school, the child would be sent to a School Nurse as usual. The School Nurse would contact the parents/guardians. If the Clinic is open during that time (on a Tuesday or Friday between 9:00 - 11:00), and the family has completed a Clinic Enrollment Form, parents/guardians have the following options:
1) The parents/guardians will get their sick or unwell child from school and take he/she to the Clinic for an appointment with a healthcare provider; 2) The parents/guardians can ask the school to transport the child to the clinic for an appointment, and then choose to pick up their child from the Clinic.


If a child is unwell and is not at school, but parents/guardians want to take them directly to the Clinic on a Tuesday or Friday from 9:00 - 11:00, they can also pursue that option. 


Who can be treated at the Trojans Care Clinic?

The Trojans Care Clinic is for HSSD students and staff members only. 

The siblings of HSSD students who do not attend the HSSD cannot receive treatment at this time. The children of staff members who do not attend the HSSD cannot receive treatment at this time. Spouses of staff members cannot receive treatment at this time. 


Would a student receive medication at the Trojans Care Clinic?

It is important to remember that no students would ever leave the Trojans Care Clinic with any type of medication or a written prescription. Any prescriptions would be called into the pharmacy of the parent’s choice (which the parents would communicate via the enrollment forms). 


How does the Trojans Care Clinic work with a student’s Primary Care Physician?

If students already have a Primary Care Physician (PCP), parents/guardians can still choose to enroll their students with the Clinic. The intent of the clinic is not to change a student’s PCP, but to meet the medical needs of students and families as conveniently as possible. Some insurances do require a doctor’s referral from a PCP before students can be seen at the Clinic. 


The Trojans Care Clinic is a school-based health center, which is like having an on-campus doctor’s office and/or an extension of a Convenient Care Clinic.


Can the Trojans Care Clinic treat students without a Primary Care Physician?

Yes. If students do not have a PCP, healthcare providers at the Trojans Care Clinic can provide treatment, and then provide guidance on establishing a PCP in the area for the family.


How can families schedule an appointment at the Trojans Care Clinic?

The Trojans Care Clinic is only open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Students will be seen there on a first-come/first-serve basis. Families and Nurses can call ahead at this number: (501) 620-7815.
