School Based Health Center link

Albany Area Primary Health Care and the Mitchell County School System have joined in partnership and developed a comprehensive health clinic that is located with the Career Academy at Mitchell County High School. This center is staffed with medical, dental, behavioral health, optometry, and/or other ancillary service providers.


Our services include diagnosis and treatment of acute illnesses and minor injuries, management of chronic illnesses, routine health physicals, immunizations, counseling, behavioral health, health education/promotion, hearing, vision and lab testing and referrals to medical subspecialists and community agencies, treatment of oral health issues with general dentistry services, and treatment of vision services with optometry services.


The primary focus of the clinic is to provide quality, accessible health care to the children of Mitchell County in order to positively impact children's health, school attendance, and academic performance.

Parents, please click on the title above  and sign the consent form for each of your children if you desire for your children to be seen. Signing the consent form does not change your child's personal doctor but it allows the child to be seen at our School Based Health Center.

Prevention & Response Plans to COVID 19
The focus of the Mitchell County School System is to avoid and/or minimize opportunities for sustained exposure to COVID 19 for all faculty, staff, and students.  By definition, exposure only occurs when someone is closer than 3 feet for more than 15 minutes to someone else who has also been exposed (or tested positive). If a mask is worn and 3 feet distancing is maintained, contact with a person who has tested positive does not mean you have been exposed and you are not required to be sent home from school. MCSS has implemented the following safety protocols and enhanced mitigation measures:     Enhanced Social Distancing Measures (optional masks, smaller class sizes, 3 foot distancing,    Temperature Checks, Regular Handwashing,  Regular/deep cleaning of classrooms and buses).  Limited visitors allowed in any of the school buildings; Use of UV Wands by all employees to sanitize frequently used surfaces
