Welcome to New Lebanon Local Schools Health & Wellness Department!

We consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to be a part of your child’s educational experience. The #1 goal of school health services here at Dixie is to be an advocate EVERY day for EVERY student who walks through our doors. We service @ 1200 students annually, and no two students’ needs are the same. So, we are committed to working with you to meet whatever challenges may exist for your family so that coming to school EVERY day is something that your child looks forward to.

The resources available on this site are here to assist you in making more informed choices about the health of your child both at school and at home. If you have any questions or concerns about school health services, do not hesitate to contact us. The job of the school nurse is to serve as a resource for YOU.

COVID-19 VACCINE FOR PRETEENS AND TEENS

The CDC recommends vaccination for everyone 12 years and older to help protect against COVID-19


CLICK HERE for information regarding COVID-19 Vaccine for teens


Due to the impending finish of the school year and the close proximity of a vaccination clinic, we have partnered with the New Lebanon Rite Aid to let families know of a convenient option for those who would like to have the vaccination.


Rite Aid offers more convenience due to its ability to hold a clinic each day and more convenient hours to avoid parent work hours. Rite Aid offers both appointment and walk-in vaccinations for those 12 and older-- appointments are recommended so that they can be sure to have enough Pfizer vaccine on hand.


Please see below for store hours and online appointment scheduling:

COVID TESTING SITES

As of 11/04/2020, Dayton Children's Hospital has three locations now for COVID-19 testing for children. These locations can also swab for flu, RSV, and strep tests.

  • 884 Valley Street, Dayton – down the street from the main hospital

  • 3300 West Tech Road, Springboro — directly across the street from the Dayton Children’s south campus

  • 865 West Market Street, Troy – behind the Troy outpatient care center

By doing these tests at alternate locations, it keeps the hospital safer for our immune-compromised patients.

The child will need a physician’s order for any of these tests, so families will still need to make an appointment with their child’s primary care doctor for an evaluation.

Dayton Children's Hospital
One Children's Plaza
Dayton, Ohio 45404-1815
