AISD wants to make sure that our community is safe and healthy. That's why AISD is offering Telemedicine services for our students and their families.
Telemedicine will be available in campus health rooms this school year through our partnership with Virtual Care for Families. Services include rapid COVID-19 tests, as well as a test for strep throat and the flu. While students won’t be back on campus until at least September, families should know about the service so they can choose to opt-in while enrolling if interested.
If your student has been opted in and is in need of care, they can quickly be seen by a pediatrician through a secure two-way video conference call. Doctors are able to diagnose patients virtually as well as send a prescription to a pharmacy of the family’s choosing, when appropriate. It’s like a visit to the doctor's office without leaving school. As a reminder, if your child is feeling unwell before school, please keep them home.
Parents wishing to use this service must consent through the online registration process for the 2020-21 school year through my.austinisd.org.
