Medical forms must be resubmitted for every student at the beginning of each school year. All medical forms are completed on the online database, Magnus Health SMR (Student Medical Record), available to parents on the Parents portal.
When a student becomes ill or is injured at school, parents are contacted depending on the severity of symptoms.
In an effort to control the spread of infection, parents are strongly encouraged to keep their student home if he or she is sick. A student may return to school once he or she is fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications. A fever is considered 100.0 degrees or higher.
If a student is an athlete, in order to participate in athletic games or practices, the student must be present at school and attending classes by 11:00 AM.
All new students must have a Tennessee Immunization form submitted to Magnus by July 15. Any student missing the required immunizations and/or form will not be allowed to start classes until the form is uploaded to Magnus. All PreK, Kindergarten, and 7th grade students require an updated immunization form before starting school. These forms should be uploaded to Magnus.
For any student taking medication of any type during the school day (including over-the-counter medication), state policy requires that the school nurse must have a Medication Administration Form on file. Medications for Lower School students must be brought to the Lower School Office by a parent. For Middle and High School, as long as a Medication Administration Form is on file, students may keep medications with them in a backpack or purse. All medications must be in the original container with the student’s name clearly marked. Any medication must be supplied by the parent.
