  3. Hand sanitizer is available at various areas inside the school.
  4. Social distancing from others is encouraged as much as possible.
  5. Signs will be displayed to remind those in schools about social distancing, as well as the use of hand sanitizer, washing of hands, and face coverings.

*Please keep in mind that although COVID positive cases may represent a student or staff member within the WCSD, it does not necessarily indicate that the virus originated within the WCSD.  It is also important to note that a portion of the positive cases involve individuals who may have never entered the school setting while sick due to proper quarantining.

PanCare of Florida, Inc at MSE

Walton County School District and PanCare Health are excited to implement an innovative TeleHealth School Health Program to provide medical services at your child's school.

PanCare's on-campus TeleHealth clinic allows the school health nurse to consult with PanCare medical professionsl using telecommunication technology. This TeleHealth program will make healthcare for students more convenient and accessible, avoid delays in treatment, and enhance learning by decreasing absenteeism.

Available TeleHealth Services:

  • Diagnosis and treatment for acute illnesses and minor injuries such as strep throat, ear infections, rash, and more.

  • On-site rapid testing for COVID-19, Flue, and Strep available.

  • Behavioral health services availabe to provide Medication Management.

PanCare will only provide these services to students whose parents/guardians opt-in by providing written permission by completing the TeleHealth Services Consent Form. Services will NOT be provided to students without a parent/guardian's consent. All services are provided at no cost.

You may contact the school office for information on the TeleHealth Services Consent Form at (850) 892-1261.

Walton County School District is sensitive to the many responsiblities and obligations student care-givers juggle. TeleHealth services are designed with you, our parents in mind. Be sure to enroll your student as soon as possible.
