How to Report COVID Concerns

  • A red button has been placed on several prominent pages of spps.org for people to report COVID-19 concerns. If you have a COVID concern and have been on SPPS property, you are encouraged to report it the same day using this online system. A phone number is listed for families who need to report in Spanish, Hmong, Somali or Karen.

    SPPS works closely with the Minnesota Department of Health to determine action steps for a reported case of COVID-19. Guidance from local and state health officials will determine if further communications are needed. For more information, please refer to the COVID-19 Communications Protocol.

     Watch this short video to see how the reporting process works.

Health Start Clinics

  • Health Start Clinics Are Open

    Most SPPS high school Health Start Clinics are open and available for scheduling appointments. Health Start serves students ages 11 and up for urgent in-person mental health care, medication management for depression and anxiety, sexual health concerns, check-ups and vaccines, non-respiratory illness, injuries and asthma follow-up. Please note, the Gordon Parks Health Start Clinic will see students from Pre-Kindergarten through high school.

    To gain building access, students should call the phone number posted and explain they are there for a Health Start appointment.

    If you have respiratory symptoms, a fever or known exposure to coronavirus, we will refer you to affordable testing and care but will not see you in person. Telehealth services are available.

    Please call 651-412-8445 to make an appointment. A student does not need to attend the school that the clinic is located in and walk-in appointments are also welcome.
