School Health Services
The HSSD Health Clinics are designed to treat minor injuries and to act as a temporary "waiting room" for students who have become ill during the school day. Should a student become ill, only persons designated on the Health Information/Emergency Release Card will be contacted to pick up the student. All telephone numbers must be recorded on the Health Information/Emergency Release Card and updated immediately if changes occur during the school year.

Tennessee School Health Screenings
With the expansion of Coordinated School Health to all school systems in Tennessee, all students in grades Pre-K, K, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8, as well as high school wellness classes will receive vision and hearing screening during the school year. Those same grades, except for PreK ,will be screened for blood pressure and height/weight. One grade of high school will also be screened for blood pressure and height/weight. Oral Health screenings for students are encouraged, but not mandated as is scoliosis screening for 6th graders.
