W-W partners with AVERA eCARE
Tuesday, December 18, 2018
As you know, students need to be healthy to learn. In response to this need the Wolsey-Wessington School District has chosen to partner with eCARE in Sioux Falls, S.D., to provide school health services. The eCARE School Health program offers all day access to an experienced school nurse through a two-way video/audio technology. The school nurse is based in Sioux Falls and will assist school staff in treating injuries, illnesses and chronic health conditions such, as asthma or diabetes.
The interaction between the eCARE School Health nurse and the student will be very similar to having a school nurse providing care on-site. With the assistance of school staff, the school nurse will visit with and assess the health needs of your child. If further care or treatment is needed, the eCARE school nurse will notify the parent of the outcome and together will decide the best options for the student.
The school district will provide this service to all students free of charge, with the goal to keep students healthy and learning.
