Helping our children maintain their health and wellness through on-site access to our Sherman Elementary Health Center at Sherman Elementary School is important to us at Southern West Virginia Health System.  

The goal of our school-based health center is to provide the children in our community with easier access to healthcare services to: 

  • Help meet student care needs as they occur during the school day  
  • Shorten the time taken to diagnose a health-related condition and begin treatment 
  • Assist parents with helping their child/children to be seen by a provider without having to take time off work or travel to another location for diagnosis or treatment 
  • Provide convenient access to well-child visits, immunizations, sports physicals and more  

What type of services can my child/children receive at Sherman Elementary Health Center? 

The staff at our Sherman Elementary Health Center are trained and equipped to provide care for: 

  • Treatment for minor cuts, abrasions, sprains, and strains 
  • Treatment of short-term illness 
  • Management of long-term conditions 
  • Immunizations 
  • Sports Physicals 

How can I arrange for my child to participate in receiving care at Sherman Elementary Health Center? 

In order for your child/children to be seen at our Sherman Elementary Health Center, a parent or guardian must return a completed school enrollment and consent form to our school-based health center.  For easy access to this form, we have provided a clickable pdf that you can download, fill-out, print out, and return to our school-based health staff.  If you would like a hard copy of this form, just let our staff know and they will be happy to assist you. 

Do I need to fill out a new school-based health center enrollment and consent form for each school year? 

Yes.  Each school year a new completed enrollment and consent form will be needed.   

Will you contact me if my child has been seen by a staff member at Sherman Elementary Health Center? 

Yes.  After each visit, the parent or guardian will be contacted by phone, or in cases where we cannot contact you by phone a letter will be sent home with your child, to explain the reason for the visit and a treatment plan if one is necessary. 

Will my insurance be billed for the services provided at Sherman Elementary Health Center? 

Yes.  Actual payments are not collected at the school-based health centers at the time of visit.  However, services are billed to the student’s insurance on file.  Parents will receive statements in the mail regarding billing.
