Keeping Kids Healthy

Keeping Kids Healthy and Ready to Learn

We know that students need to be healthy in order to learn. APS has partnered with Aurora Mental Health, Children’s Hospital Colorado and Rocky Mountain Youth Clinics to provide Kids Clinic locations at Crawford and Laredo elementary schools. The clinics offer comprehensive, caring and affordable health care for all APS students and their brothers and sisters.

Both Kids Clinic locations provide physical, dental and mental health services to patients with and without health insurance. They can also help uninsured families enroll in insurance plans, including Medicaid and Child Health Plan Plus.

The clinics are staffed by bilingual nurse practitioners, physician assistants and certified medical assistants.

Contact each clinic to make an appointment. After school appointments and walk ins are available. Hours vary by location. Feel free to call one of the clinics listed below for more information or visit our website at aurorak12.org/kids-clinic.

Mantengamos a los niños sanos y listos para aprender

Sabemos que todos los estudiantes necesitan estar sanos para poder aprender. APS se ha unido con Aurora Mental Health, Children’s Hospital Colorado y Rocky Mountain Youth Clinics para crear la clínica de niños (Kids Clinic) en las escuelas primarias Crawford y Laredo. Las clínicas ofrecen cuidados de salud integrales, de alta calidad y bajo costo para todos los estudiantes de APS y sus hermanos.

Estas dos sedes de Kids Clinic ofrecen atención física, dental y mental a todos los pacientes, con y sin seguro médico. También pueden ayudar a las familias que no tienen seguro médico, para que se inscriban en planes como Medicaid y Child Health Plan Plus.

Las clínicas cuentan con enfermeras especializadas, asistentes médicos y personal de apoyo bilingüe y certificado.
