GISD Health & Wellness Center Now Open

The district’s Health & Wellness Center opened on Monday, January 4 for students, staff and their immediate family members. GISD partnered with Lone Star Circle of Care to open the center, which resides in the building that houses Richarte High School and the Georgetown High School Annex at 2295 N. Austin Ave.

The center is staffed by a licensed nurse practitioner who can see patients for preventive health visits or well checks, sick visits, physicals, injuries, lab services including PCR testing for COVID-19, medical screenings, nutritional health education and behavioral health counseling.

All patients must complete consent forms prior to treatment. For more information about the wellness center or to download consent forms, please visit the district website at www.georgetownisd.org/healthcenter. To make an appointment, call 877-800-5722.

January is School Board Appreciation Month

Annually in January, school districts across the state of Texas take time to thank our elected School Board Trustees during School Board Recognition Month. Please join us this month in showing appreciation for Georgetown ISD’s school board members, who volunteer their time, energy and talents to help guide the vision of GISD.

We invite you to share a message of thanks on social media any time this month with the hashtags #SchoolBoardMonth and #GISDBoard.
