          We are so excited to offer this School-Based Health program here at CDE! Your child can now be examined, diagnosed, and treated by healthcare providers while at school via Telehealth. Your kids shouldn’t have to miss school. You shouldn’t have to miss work.  It’s simple…just sign and return the consent forms to enroll in the program.

The incident in South Florida, and others like them, are some of the worst cases of violence in schools. It can be difficult to think about the increase of school violence and what that means for students. School safety is important to protect all students and school personnel from violence. Please take a moment to read the response from our Interim Superintendent, Dr. Debbie Hamm in light of the recent events.
