Healthy School Plan
Students and staff participate in a nutrition and fitness initiative that addresses the importance of good nutrition and exercise to support the mind/body connection in learning. Silverton is a recipient of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant administered by the Ohio Department of Education and sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture and awarded the CPS District.

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Students are provided fresh fruit snacks and lunch salad items on a daily basis to supplement daily nutritional requirements.
School-Based Mercy Health Center
The Health Center is an optional service for all students offering on-site medical care that includes physical exams, routine well-child checkups, and the following:
- Diagnosing and treating common illnesses, including writing prescriptions
- Well child visits and sports physicals
- Diagnostic testing such as rapid strep
- Orders for lab work and x-rays
- Immunizations administered by the Cincinnati Health Department
- Specialists referrals
- Dental referrals
- Hearing and vision referrals
- Counseling referrals
Mercy bills your insurance company for services your child receives from the Health Center and you are billed by Mercy for any co-pays. If insurance is not available, or a co-pay is not affordable, the Mercy staff assists in the completion of a Financial Need Assessment Form that is submitted to the Mercy billing office.
Silverton also has available on a daily basis a health services provider to oversee emergencies, and medication distribution.
The school-based Health Center is open during school hours on Monday — Friday.
