Health Forms

We use our Magnus Health online database to collect and store students' health and medical information. You will receive reminder emails from Park notifying you that you need to take action with your online Student Medical Record. These emails will list any incomplete requirement(s) or any existing requirement(s) that will expire and needs to be updated. Emails are sent on a weekly basis and if you have an incomplete or soon-to-expire existing requirement, you will receive these reminders throughout the summer until the record is complete. Simply login to your SMR using your Veracross username and password and you will find items marked with a “To Do” flag if you need to take action.
