Mobile Expanded School Health (MESH)

MESH (Mobile Expanded School Health) is a mobile medical unit that provides health care services to the students at West Wilkes one day each week during the school year. The schedule for services will be announced at the beginning of each school year. Services available include sick visits, sports physicals, immunizations, assessment of sports injuries, mental health counseling, and referrals to private medical providers as indicated. A minimum number of services involve a fee including flu shots, sports physicals and specific immunizations. A signed parent consent form is required for most services except in emergency situations when provided by state law that allows services with consent of the minor. This includes testing a treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy testing, and mental health counseling.
