  • News from the clinic:

    Sometimes it is difficult to make the decision about whether or not your child is sick enough to stay home from school. With minor symptoms early in the morning, you cannot predict if he/she will feel better or worse during the course of the day. These guidelines can be of help when you’re trying to decide what’s best to do.

  • Byrd, Bradwell and Shaw Families Scholarship

    The entire Fort Braden Community is mourning the loss of three remarkable individuals who touched so many lives and have been taken from us too soon. Jordan Byrd, Jacquelin “Jackie” Shaw and Karen Bradwell devoted over 25 years of combined service to our community and tragically lost their lives after complications due to the Covid-19 coronavirus earlier this year.
