(Email sent to all families July 2021)
Dear BB&N Families,
It is time to fill out the Health Tracker form for your student/s for the 2021-2022 year. This information can be completed or updated online on our Magnus Health system, which can be accessed via the newly launched Veracross Parent Portal page, about which we sent you a Welcome email last night at 7:00 PM. If you have not yet reviewed that email, please do so now to learn how to access your personalized Parent Portal and Magnus Health pages. If it is your first time logging in, you will see a Magnus introductory video showing parents how to use your student’s Magnus account.
A completed Health Tracker form is required by the School in order for students to participate in any BB&N activity at the start of the coming school year, including orientation programs and pre-participation days for athletics in August. Please carefully review, revise (as needed), and enter the necessary information on the forms, and submit the completed form by TUESDAY, JULY 13. As noted in Dr. Price’s email on June 29th, we ask that you please promptly complete the part of the form which concerns your child’s vaccination status, even if you do not have the rest of your child’s health information on hand yet to complete the full form. Your student's Health Tracker will list any incomplete requirements on your Magnus "To Do List”.
Important note about health records:
The Magnus system will now require parents to both:
- Fill out the BB&N Health Tracker form.
- Upload directly into your student’s Magnus Health Profile the two physician forms noted below for each student. (This needs to be done before school starts for new students, or by anniversary date of previous exam for returning students.):
a) Verification of an annual physical exam
Student physical exams are valid for one year from the date of the previous exam. It is required that an updated physical exam form, dated and signed by a physician, be submitted at the time of the annual exam in order for the student to continue participation in BB&N activities.
b) Up-to-date immunization record
Please click here to view a PDF that describes immunization requirements for all students attending BB&N during the 2021-22 year. New students will need to provide a full immunization history. Returning students need only to update their immunization history. (Parents, pay special attention to students entering Kindergarten and Grade 7, as these are checkpoints in a student's career where the requirements may change.)
To facilitate the process of receiving these necessary records, please be sure to contact your child's primary care provider as soon as possible and request an appointment for their annual physical examination well in advance of the child's one-year anniversary date.
If any additional guidance related to COVID-19 is announced by the Mass. Department of Public Health this summer which requires additional information to be provided by families, we will communicate with you at that time.
Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to these important documents, and we wish you a safe, healthy, and happy summer. Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any Magnus technical issues, please note the “need help” icon located in the top right corner of your profile page where a chat option with Magnus software is available along with a Magnus phone number, email, and a step-by-step reference guide.
