PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Two school-based Paducah health clinics have been approved in an effort to keep staff and students both healthy and in school.

The Paducah Sun (https://bit.ly/1DrH4eW ) reports that the city’s Board of Education approved the agreements to establish clinics at McNabb Elementary School and Paducah Tilghman High School.

District director of pupil personnel Troy Brock says the board was positively influenced by the success of the existing clinic at Morgan Elementary School.

Mercy Medical Associates will run the new clinic at McNabb and provide comprehensive primary health care to any student, staff or family member in the Paducah public school system. Similar to the clinic at Morgan, services will be provided on-site to help students and teachers avoid health-related absences.

Baptist Health Paducah will operate the Tilghman clinic.
