The Plaquemine High Health Center opened in August of 2017 in Plaquemine, Louisiana.  The health center is located on campus in the main school building across from the front office.  It serves the student population of Plaquemine High, as well as faculty and staff.  Students can visit the health center by scheduling appointments during non-core curriculum class time or during lunch.  Parents can call the health center and request that their child receive immunizations or check-ups by communicating information to the Medical Assistant or Nurse Practitioner on staff.  All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file at the health center in order to be seen by medical staff.  Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the beginning of the school year; however, parents may sign their child up at any time during the year.  Copies of the consent and enrollment forms can also be found on the “Health Center” page of the Plaquemine High School website.

Nurse Practitioner Brittney Sanders provides primary care services for students including well checks, immunizations, sports physicals, acute and diagnostic services.  Mrs. Sanders has more than 11 years of experience working in school-based health.  She is assisted by Chiquite Gordon her medical assistant. Ms. Gordon also serves as front desk administrator for the clinic.  Licensed Clinical Social Worker Melissa Laneaux and Licensed Professional Counselor Markita Anderson offer counseling and support services to students including:  stress and anger management, dealing with anxiety, bullying, substance abuse, trauma, grief counseling and communication skills. Students at the Iberville Optional Education Center also receive therapy by Ms. Anderson with the consent of their parent or guardian which helps students with their transition back to school.
