7:45 AM - 8:30 AM School Improvement Meeting in office Conference room All invited
Welcome to Northeast Elementary parents and students. My name is Erik Weatherwax and I’m the new principal at Northeast Elementary. I have been a JPS Viking for most of my life. I’m a product of our K-12 schooling and have worked for JPS for 22 years as a teacher and administrator. I am very excited to join the Northeast team for the 2017/18 school year. It’s going to be a great year! Northeast is a STEAM school serving grades 3-5.
The Center for Family Health operates three school health centers, in partnership with Jackson Public Schools, making affordable medical and behavioral health services convenient.
Two centers serve patients through the age of 21 – Parkside Health Center and Jackson High Health Center. Northeast Health Center serves patients of all ages and also offers dental services.
It is like having a family doctor’s office in a school. The centers are open to all students, regardless of where they go to school. Students under 18 need parental permission to be treated. The school health centers can serve as your family doctor or be utilized in tandem with your family physician.
School health center staff conduct physical examinations, diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses, administer immunizations, offer hearing and vision screening, and provide preventive health services and education. Therapists also are on staff.
All school health centers are open weekdays year-round. You can learn more about hours, specific locations and phone numbers by visiting www.CenterforFamilyHealth.org/ health-services/school-health.
Adults or children treated at any of the school health centers can utilize the services at the downtown Jackson facility at 505 N. Jackson St. and the Dental Clinic at 500 N. Jackson St.
All Center locations accept most commercial and government insurance groups, including Medicaid and Medicare; offer a sliding discount program; and never turn anyone away because of inability to pay.
As part of an $86.7 million bond proposal, Jackson's Frost and Cascades elementary schools would be demolished and a new elementary school built in their place.
