Health Center
  • Riverdale School Based Health Center is one of 11 school-based health centers Jefferson
    Parish School District operates.  A school-based health center is a comprehensive healthcare
    clinic that is housed within a school and provides students with medical and mental health
    services.  A key benefit of the SBHC is that it keeps students in school and parents at work and

    reduces emergency room visits.

    Consented students of the SBHC can receive services from a licensed physician, nurse
    practitioner, licensed clinical social worker, or psychiatrist who can diagnose and treat

    physical or mental illness early and cost effectively.

    In order for a student to receive services, a written or electronic consent must be fully

    completed by a parent/guardian.

    There are no out-of-pocket costs for any student, insured or uninsured. Co-payments are
    waived for all students enrolled at our SBHC.  Commercial insurances including Medicaid and
    Medicare are accepted. Students who are uninsured can also receive care with a consent and
    enrollment form on file with the health center. Services are given to all students at NO COST.
    All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file to be seen at the
    Riverdale School Based Health Center. Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the
    beginning of the year; however, parents may sign their child up for services at any time during
    the school year. Electronic consent forms may also be found on the right-hand side of this
    webpage through a QR code or links. Paper consent forms can also be found and printed on

    the right-hand side of this webpage.

    If you have an emergency outside of school hours, please call 9-1-1.
