Many families are experiencing high levels of stress related to the current global pandemic. If you are concerned about your child's reactions, please make a mental health appointment with one of our highly trained mental health therapists (in-person or via telehealth) and check out the Helping Children Cope with the COVID-19 Pandemic workbook, left.
Covid-19 Pandemic Statistics
Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are in stock at all clinics. Minors need a Teen Health consent form (which GISD families completed during school registration) and a Covid-19 vaccine consent form completed by a parent or guardian. The parent or child may then make an appointment at the Teen Health clinic of their choice.
Coping with Covid
Any GISD student or staff member can make an appointment at a Teen Health clinic and get test results in 15 minutes, free of charge. GISD students and staff are welcome to make an appointment at clinics with direct exterior entrances: Collegiate Academy, Central Middle School, or Austin Middle School. Appointments will be scheduled as soon as possible, depending on availability. Ball High and MECC students and staff who become symptomatic at school may be seen at the clinic on their home campus, also depending on availability. To schedule an appointment, call 409-761-3530.
To receive a rapid COVID-19 test, a consent form must be completed by a parent or guardian. To expedite this process, we are asking all parents to log onto Skyward Family Access, go to online forms, and complete the COVID-19 Consent Form. You may also download the form here.
