RE: Medical and Electronic Forms for the 2017-2018 School Year
For the upcoming school year, we will continue to use Magnus Health SMR, an online database, to manage our student medical forms. The benefits, including less paperwork for parents to complete (after the first year) and access to more readily available and accurate information, have proven to be a valuable asset. Online records have also allowed us to communicate more effectively with parents and teachers.
The Magnus Health System is available now. You have access to your Magnus Health SMR account through our website – www.us.edu
. We ask that you enter the health information required within your Magnus Health SMR account for each child attending University School no later than July 15, 2017. Click HERE
to find the instructions to login to Magnus. While all information will ultimately be contained within the Magnus SMR, physical forms, and any others that require a doctor’s signature, will need to be printed and taken to the physician’s office for completion. Follow Magnus instructions to upload the completed forms.
Timely submission of health information and other forms is vital so that preparations can be made prior to participating in athletic activities and the first day of school. You will receive regular reminders as long as there are outstanding items in your account. If you are creating a new health profile for your son, this process will take longer the first time. The good news is that you will not have to repeat this work after the first year: the data is securely stored, so going forward you will simply provide updates to the record as needed.
Additionally, we are delighted that the Magnus Health System will be able to handle field trip permission forms, media releases, acceptable use policy forms, and other school-related forms.
For all 7th - 12th grade students: We are requiring the OHSAA Pre-Participation Evaluation form for your son's yearly physical exam. Simply download the Pre-Participation Evaluation paper form from Magnus, complete the history, and take the hard copy to the physician’s office for the physical exam and the provider’s signature for clearance to participate. Please keep a copy of the signed forms for your own records. The completed form then needs to be uploaded back to the Magnus Health site.
Please call your physician today to schedule your son’s physical exam prior to July 15, 2017.
Thank you so much for your support and for your participation. If you have any questions, please email Denise Hodson, HV School Nurse at email@example.com
