In addition to the school nurse, Thomas Edison has a school based clinic staffed by professionals from the Minneapolis Department of Health and Family Support. Students may use the clinic for physical examinations, immunizations, acute or chronic illness, information about sexually transmitted diseases including HIV, legal advice, nutrition and weight counseling, pregnancy prevention and diagnosis, or any other medical concern. Social work services are available for personal or family problems and for resource information. Written parent permission is necessary for students, except when there is a confidential issue, to use the clinic. Staff referrals are welcomed.
Fees and Parental Consent:
Students and parents will not be charged for services received in school based clinics. Insurance companies, HMOs, and medical assistance are billed when possible. Partial payment from insurance is accepted as payment in full.
Clinic Consent Form:
Students must have a clinic consent form on file at the clinic. If you do not, please stop in and pick one up. Minnesota law requires a parent or guardian signature for all students under 18 years old. Exceptions include:
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school based clinic nurse.
