New Families: Complete Registration Items for the 21-22 School Year

Headwaters School
Please complete all registration items by August 1.
It is now time to complete your student’s annual registration forms, including health and medical information, for the upcoming school year. Starting next Tuesday 6/29, you will receive an automated reminder email from Magnus Health notifying you that you must take action to complete your registration items for the coming school year. This email will list any incomplete requirements and you will receive email reminders weekly until all items are complete. Only one parent/guardian is required to complete the forms for their child. 

Starting today, you have access to your Magnus Health SMR account through The Nest. You will access your account via the Resources tab on the tile called “Magnus Health.” This allows for a single sign-on process and no extra passwords to remember. We ask that you enter the information required within your Magnus Health SMR account for each child attending Headwaters School no later than August 1, 2021.

Submission of health information and other forms is vital so that preparations can be made prior to the first day of school. Please reserve 20 to 30 minutes per child, depending on 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. 

How to Access Magnus

To Access your Magnus Health Account:
Access your Magnus Health SMR account through The Nest with single sign-on. You will access your account via the Resources section to the tile titled “Magnus Health Portal.” The image on the left is what you will see at the top of your Resources tab.

You will need to login to Magnus through the Nest first in order to create a new username and password. Then, you can login to the app.
