Health Services

Each school in Mehlville School District is staffed with at least one school nurse. Nurses play a critical role in keeping our students healthy and ensuring the safety of our students and staff. School nurses provide first aid, dispense prescribed and over-the-counter medications as directed by a student’s physician, and encourage student well-being through a variety of activities.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mehlville nurses will be following the recommendations of the St. Louis County Department of Public Health. All students should be COVID-screened at home using our symptom checker.

The district's Lead Nurse is Jen Ahearn, RN, BSN.

Mehlville offers telehealth services through Hazel Health

Mehlville School District is working to make healthcare more accessible to our students through a new partnership with Hazel Health, the national leader in school-based health care. This partnership allows Mehlville to provide telehealth services for K-12 students and families at certain district schools. Through Hazel Health, students are able to connect directly with licensed physicians from their school nurse's office or at home.

“We are excited to provide our families with an additional option for quality health care,” said Adam Smith, Mehlville’s Executive Director for Student Services. “Making health care more accessible is an important way for us to support the well-being of all students.” 

Hazel Health services are available to families at the following Mehlville schools: 

   • Beasley Elementary School
   • Bierbaum Elementary School
   • Blades Elementary School
   • Forder Elementary School
   • Trautwein Elementary School
   • Bernard Middle School
   • Margaret Buerkle Middle School
   • Oakville Middle School
   • Washington Middle School
   • Mehlville High School

As the only telehealth provider designed specifically for schools, Hazel Health's technology enables on-demand care within minutes and strictly adheres to FERPA, HIPAA and district and federal policies. The company's care team is staffed by culturally responsive, state-licensed physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who work alongside nurses and parents to treat students and advise on next steps.

Hazel Health actively partners with insurance companies and state Medicaid programs to fund programs. These partners support their mission to improve access to health, reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and improve key health outcomes.

"Our goal is to provide complementary support, such as access to doctors during the school day, without leaving campus," said Josh Golomb, CEO of Hazel Health. Schools are a central engagement point for students and families, meaning they're in a good position to efficiently and effectively contribute to student wellness efforts."
