  • Jordan Valley School Based Health Clinic Opens October 1

    Republic School District is excited to announce that our school based health clinic partnership with Jordan Valley Health Centers will kick-off on October 1!


    Jordan ValleyOne Jordan Valley community health worker will be available to work with our school nurses to coordinate a virtual visit with a Jordan Valley doctor or nurse practitioner for any student or employee that is sick and needs to be seen by a practitioner for the following illnesses: strep throat, ear infection, sinus infection, rash, pink eye, stomach flu, bug bites, lice and congestion. After being seen by a provider the student/employee will be able to return to class/work OR they will be given a diagnosis and will be ready to go home. If necessary, the practitioner will call in a prescription to the patient's pharmacy for them to pay for and pick-up.


    This partnership is made possible primarily by funds provided by Jordan Valley Health Centers. Beyond office space for the onsite community health worker, this program has no other financial obligations for the district. Parents and employees will never receive a bill for care. If the patient has insurance, that insurance will receive the bill. If the patient does not have insurance, Jordan Valley Health Centers covers the cost of the visit and patients only have to pay for prescriptions, when needed.


    This service will be optional, but available to all students and employees. Paper registration forms were sent home with students September 13 and will need to be completed and returned to school before they can be seen by the practitioner beginning October 1. You can also print a form and return it to school at We're excited and thankful for this opportunity to partner with Jordan Valley Health Centers!

  • RHS & RMS Student COVID19 Vaccination Status

    To help our nurses and our administrators with the efficiency of future contact tracing (as you can imagine, these can be very time consuming), we're asking our RMS and RHS families to share student COVID19 vaccine statuses with us by completing the form at the link below. Completing this form is completely voluntary and not required. However, by sharing your student's proof of vaccine with us, we'll be able to quickly determine that if your student is exposed to a positive case they will not need to quarantine as long as they are symptom free instead of having to gather evidence during contact tracing.

    This will be very helpful information, but it will be kept confidential and for district purposes only. This will also allow us to be able to determine our overall student vaccination rate, which can assist us in how we monitor future trends of COVID19 in our buildings.

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this voluntary form and to upload your student's vaccine card, if he or she has been vaccinated. This form will be available throughout the year to complete as vaccines are received. Contact your school nurse or Health Services Director, if you have questions.
