We are deeply heartbroken by the tragic loss of life at Mount Tabor High School yesterday. As a supporting and partner organization to our WS/FCS district, we are here to be of service and support to our WS/FCS students. Please remember that you are not alone, and that we encourage you to talk with someone about your thoughts, feelings, emotions, concerns or worries. We share the resources below in hopes that they may help navigate our personal and collective grief.
*To schedule an appointment at one of our school-based health centers or clinics, please call us at 336-703-4273. We have counselors and medical providers that are here to support and talk with you.
*Trained counselors are also available 24/7 through the SAMHSA Helpline – just call or text 1-800-985-5990 (for Spanish, press “2”)
*These resources from the National Traumatic Stress Network may also provide valuable guidance for coping with this tragic event and loss of life impacting our students and families, teachers, school staff, and administrators, and community as a whole.
Our SHA team looks forward to meeting you at an Open House within our district. If you have questions about what services we offer to students, or would like help with enrolling, please feel free to stop by and visit us during Open House.
Coming Soon- a new comprehensive school-based health clinic at Petree Elementary School. This school-based health clinic will be open to any student enrolled in our school district and will provide medical, nutrition, and behavioral health services. Thanks to our Kintegra partners for helping us set up today!
In an effort to help ensure students are in compliance with health assessments and immunizations and to increase access to health and mental health services for students within our school district during virtual and hybrid learning, the School Health Alliance for Forsyth County has expanded clinic hours of operation on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. at our Mineral Springs Clinic location. In addition, our Mobile Medical Unit will be serving some additional schools during the month of October and the first week of November. Here are the upcoming locations, dates, and times for our Mobile Medical Unit:
October 7 – Forest Park 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
October 14 – Sedge Garden Elementary 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
October 20 – Old Town Elementary School 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
October 21 – Speas Elementary 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
October 28 – Konnoak Elementary 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Please note that immunizations are only offered at our Mineral Springs clinic location (and aren’t available on the mobile clinic). Our staff confirm whether or not immunizations are needed when a parent/guardian calls to schedule an appointment, and then will schedule students for our Mineral Springs clinic location if a student needs immunizations. To schedule an appointment for services at any of our sites, parents/guardians can call 336-703-4273.
