Lockwood Schools provide basic health care for students through the school nurse. The nurse is contracted through RiverStone Health. The school nurse is on campus each school day. Students receive basic health care, as well as presentations and classes that deal with health issues and information that supports curriculum. If you are interested in more information about the medical services at the school or have questions/concerns about your child, feel free to contact our school nurse, Jenny Mignard, RN, at 252-2776 ext 9. Certified Nurse's Assistant, Angela Larson, is also part of the Health Services staff. Information about various health screenings for Lockwood School students is posted in the school newsletter, which is published every two weeks, and on the school web site.

The St. Vincent's Ronald McDonald Medical/Dental Clinic (Care Mobile) is on the Lockwood Schools campus several times a month. This mobile unit provides services to those 18 and younger who do not have health insurance or are covered by Healthy Montana Kids or Healthy Montana Kids Plus and do not have a physician or dentist. The Care Mobile is generally parked in front of the school on US Hwy 87 E. Services, dates and times for the Care Mobile are posted monthly on the Lockwood Events Calendar link.
