Happy summer! I hope everyone is settling into a safe and relaxing summer vacation. Available now in the myAMS portal are updated class rosters and a letter from your guide. Included below is a checklist of items for you to consider and complete in the portal for the 2019-2020 school year.
For the upcoming school year, we will be shifting all student medical information to an online database. The healthcare management system we have adopted is called Magnus Health SMR (Student Medical Record). As this is a web-based system, you will have continuous access to your child’s health record as well as the ability to make updates when needed. You will also have the option to take the digital health file with you after your child graduates. The Magnus system will also be able to handle permission forms, action plans (allergy, diabetes, seizure), and other school-related forms.
You have access to your Magnus account via the button titled “Magnus Health” on the Resources tab from myAMS.
Timely submission of health information and other forms is vital so that preparations can be made prior to the first day of school. Regarding immunization records, we now require submission of all immunization records for each child, even if you have an exemption on file with the school for some immunizations. Also, the school will continue to honor Exemption Affidavits but will no longer provide notary services for this form. Please have them notarized by an authorized notary prior before submitting the form to the school. We encourage each family to have your children immunized in consultation with your pediatrician.
Please reach out to us with any questions. As a reminder, summer office hours are 9:00 - 2:00, Monday thru Thursday and 9:00 - 12:00 on Friday. I hope everyone has a safe and happy summer!
