Lower School Back to School Information
Health forms are due no later than July 23.
We continue to use Magnus Health, an online student medical record system (SMR), to store and access all of your child's medical health records and important vital health information. Due to privacy issues, Garrison Forest cannot upload your child's health forms onto Magnus. Every student enrolled for 2021-22 school year is required to have updated health records in Magnus. Please submit all necessary health forms for your student by July 23. Students who do not have updated, complete health forms by the first day of school will not be able to participate in classes.
Returning families: Magnus has begun sending emails to parents with information on what forms are required for the new school year. You may log directly into Magnus via those emails or the GFS Parent Portal. (To log in via the GFS Parent Portal, go to gfs.org/parent, enter your username and password, and then click the link to enter Magnus Health. Once in Magnus, click on your student's name and you will be taken to a "to do" list of items that need to be completed.)
New families: You will receive access to the parent portal, and Magnus Health, in mid-July; however, the forms you will need to upload are available below. You should make an appointment now for your child’s annual physical in order to meet the deadline for form submission, and then you can upload your completed forms once you have access to Magnus.
Forms: Please find blank copies of the forms you will need to upload to your child's Magnus Health account below. You may print these and take them to your child's physician. Please contact the GFS Health Center if you have any questions about which forms will be required for your child.
