Telehealth Operating In Schools

The School Board was told by Superintendent Alison Hughes, “School based health clinics are open and functioning.”  Hughes reported at the board meeting Monday that the Telehealth partnership between the Red River Parish School Board and Christus Coushatta Health Care began this fall in all public schools.

Hughes said they are offering testing through the clinics.  She added, “We have used the clinics.  My son Tyler and I went to a clinic.  We got in and out quickly.”

Parents must give permission for their children to be seen at the in-school clinics.  Hughes said, “We are encouraging families to sign up.  The students can be seen and get back to class soon.
