4J school nurses are assigned to several schools and rotate to provide services. School nurses can help students and families access health care at the health centers or with community providers, including helping to access vision and dental care for uninsured students; set up care plans for students who have health problems, offer consultation services to the school sites and to families.
To get in touch with the school nurse, contact your school, or go to the Health Services Staff Directory page.
School-Based Health Centers

4J has two school-based health centers to serve the district’s elementary, middle and high school students. The health centers, located at Churchill and North Eugene high schools, are open part-time during the school year.
Each health center is staffed with a nurse practitioner, a health assistant and a mental health therapist. The health centers handle most health issues, including illnesses, injuries, ongoing health problems, well child physicals and immunizations. The centers also provide mental health counseling with therapists from Lane County Behavioral Health for depression, anxiety, anger management, attention and focusing challenges, family stress and change, and can facilitate referrals for substance abuse.
The health centers can bill private insurance and the Oregon Health Plan, and will also provide treatment for those unable to afford medical care. Please call the clinics for hours and to schedule appointments.
