Notes from the Nurse

MAGNUS HEALTH IS COMING TO HIGH POINT!

 
August 10, 2020

Dear Parents, 
 
For the upcoming school year, we will be shifting all student medical information to an online database. There are many benefits to this change including less paperwork for parents to complete each year and having more accurate information that is accessible to parents and the appropriate employees at our school. 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.
 
On Friday, August 14th, you will have access to your Magnus Health SMR account through the High Point Academy website. You will access the account via the parent portal on High Point’s website. We ask that you enter the health information required within your Magnus Health SMR account for each child attending High Point Academy no later than September 3, 2020.
 
While we will begin the school year with remote learning, it is still vital that all required health forms be completed in Magnus Health prior to the start of the school year, in order for them to be reviewed and be ready for use when we pivot to on-campus instruction. You will receive weekly reminders as long as there are outstanding items in your account. Please reserve 20 to 30 minutes per child, depending on particular circumstances. The good news is that you will not have to repeat this work next year: the data is securely stored, so going forward you will simply provide updates to the record as needed.
 
Some parents may recall previously using Magnus Health at High Point Academy. If you previously used Magnus Health, some of your student’s health information will already be present. Please review all information for accuracy. Additionally, all Magnus Health users will need to upload a new immunization record for their students..
 
Logging in to Magnus Health the First Time:
You will be receiving a welcome email from Magnus Health in the next day or two from the following email: service@magnushealthportal.com. If you have not received this email by Friday, Aug 14th please check your spam box. This welcome email will direct you to a link to use to set up your login credentials. Your username will be your firstname.lastname (ex: jane.smith).

Once you have logged in to Magnus Health, please take the time to view the brief tutorial video which describes how to electronically sign documents and how to upload certain documents.
 
To access your Magnus Health SMR account through the HPA website:
Please visit the High Point website and log in to the parent portal by clicking on the word PARENT on the upper right-hand side of the HPA website. After logging in to the parent portal you will see the Magnus Health logo. Click on the Magnus Health logo, which will take you directly to the Magnus Health log-in page.
 
The Magnus Health App:
You may also use the convenient Magnus Health App to complete your student’s health forms. When we return to on-campus learning, parents or caregivers will need to complete the Daily Symptom Screening via the app prior to their student’s arrival on campus. Click here for instructions on using the Magnus Health App.
