Lauderdale County Schools is proud to partner with West Tennessee Medical Group - Primary Care Halls to provide school-based Telehealth clinics in our schools! With parent/guardian permission, school nurses will use video technology to connect your child with a doctor or nurse practitioner. Your child can be diagnosed and have prescriptions sent directly to your pharmacy, all without children having to leave school or parents having to leave work, in most cases.
Informational packets and consent forms will be sent home with students this week. In order for LCS students to receive Telehealth services and/or COVID testing, all consent forms must be completed and on file with the respective school(s). LCS school nurses will make contact with parents/guardians prior to conducting Telehealth visits or testing. This partnership will allow students and employees to receive efficient medical care to return to classrooms for learning.
