Attention Elwood Intermediate Parents, Guardians, and Visitors

May 4, 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Elwood Community Schools is exploring the opportunity to partner with St. Vincent-Mercy Hospital to offer physical and behavioral health services for all students at a school-based telehealth center that will be located at Elwood Intermediate School. School-based telehealth is a delivery method that can be used to improve the health quality and academic outcomes, and provide access to a wide spectrum of care including primary and acute care, chronic disease management, behavioral and mental health, and prevention and health education.

Elwood Community Schools is working to determine the specific needs of students and their families. To help us plan for the school-based telehealth center, we would like to ask you a few questions. Your answers are completely private. Thank you for your help. We ask that the survey be completed either electronically by clicking on this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ElwoodParents or this paper/pencil document and return to your childs teacher by Thursday, May 12, 2016.

Why School-Based Health Centers?

Access to Health Care for All Children
School-based health centers provide health care to all children who have parental consent, no matter insurance coverage or ability to pay (often at no cost or low cost).

Keeping Children in School
School-based health centers help keep children in school and ready to learn. Acute and chronic health problems can be treated immediately. This allows students to return to class as soon as possible.

Strong Parent and School Support
When parents allow their child to be seen at a school-based health center, they know they will not have to miss work to take their child for care. Their child will receive quick attention from health providers trained at working with youth. School staff and teachers are very supportive of school-based health centers. The health centers allow them to focus on their role of teaching students who are healthy and ready to learn.

Please complete only one survey per household.

Now for our ISTEP+ Update: EIS Staff and students want to thank you all for the excellent parent support and patience during these past 3 weeks while taking ourISTEP+ year end assessments! We will be finished with this testing on Friday, May 6th!


Thank you for helping us to CRUSH the test!

Sincerely,

Teresa Boucher
Principal
