  • Robert Bertke, Assistant Principal

    Hello, and welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year! My name is Robert Bertke and I am the 8th grade Assistant Principal for the Middle School at Parkside. This is my 7th year at Parkside and my 1st year as an administrator. I was fortunate enough to start my career in education here at Parkside where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science. I most recently taught 7th grade science and look forward to moving into 8th grade with students and families I have connected with. Over these past 6 years, I have built a strong sense of belonging and love for this school and the Jackson community. I am excited to start this year off strong and get back to focusing on the greatness the Middle School at Parkside has to offer.

    School Health  

         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.
