The Princeton City School District (PCSD) in partnership with The HealthCare Connection (THCC) currently has School-Based Health Centers for students to utilize in two of our schools: One is located at Princeton High School/ Middle School in Viking Village and the other at Heritage Hill Elementary.
Services provided include the treatment of common illnesses and injuries, management of chronic conditions (like asthma), physicals, vaccines, oral and behavioral/mental health screenings and referrals to other medical providers as needed.
Please take advantage of this convenient way to get quality healthcare at your child’s school. To be seen at one of VSBHC’s parents or guardians just need to complete and return a consent packet. Once approved, your child can be seen at the center until they graduate from high school. Any student can enroll. There are no eligibility, income, or insurance coverage requirements and no student is denied services due to the inability to pay.
Enrollment forms can be found on the Princeton website and also can be obtained from the school nurse’s office.
Staff is also available to assist families without health insurance to determine their eligibility for affordable insurance options through Medicaid or the federal health exchange.
