Health Care Where the Kids Are!

Sacagawea Health Center was established in belief that all students should have access to health services that will help them be successful in school.  Early detection of childhood illnesses reduces absenteeism and the spread of disease.  The Health Center strives to promote healthy lifestyles and facilitate communication between parents and students on health issues.
