All back-to-School forms can be completed through the new Parent Portal on Veracross. Forms should be completed by Thursday, August 17, 2023.
Important Reminder: All families are required to create health profiles for their children in Magnus Health regardless of whether they are required to upload state forms. Your child(ren)’s health profile provides us with critical information needed in order to keep them safe at school. The medical profile is where you will list any allergies your child may have, or medicines they may be taking. Health profiles must be completed by this Thursday, August 17, 2023.

The New Parent Portal on Veracross
We are excited to share the new Parent Portal with you! This new portal on Veracross allows you to quickly and easily monitor your child(ren)’s education and activities at school by putting everything you need in one place.
Magnus Health is our new secure online health record system that will be used to safely collect, store, and manage student health records. In Magnus Health, you will be able to update your child(ren)’s health record(s) and upload any required health forms. Your Magnus Health account is accessible through the new Parent Portal on Veracross. We ask families to complete their child(ren)'s heatlh profile(s) and upload all required forms by the first day of school on August 17, 2023.
Note: All families will need to create health profiles for their children in Magnus Health regardless of whether they are required to upload state forms.
State Form Requirements:
SchoolPass is used by ACS to simplify and streamline our daily arrival and dismissal process, to accurately account for student activity and attendance, and for our After School Program attendance. SchoolPass welcome emails were sent to all parents on Monday, August 7, 2023. If you have not received your email, check your spam folder before reaching out to our tech team at email@example.com. All families will need to follow the instructions in the letter to set up their account for this year. Once your account is set up, you will be able to log in directly from the Parent Portal on Veracross.
Here are some links that will help you with setting up your SchoolPass account:

About our new systems
This new student information system replaces both PowerSchool and Schoology. Veracross was designed specifically to address the needs of Private Schools and will allow us to serve our community more seamlessly. The Parent Portal on Veracross will allow you access to the school calendar, family and faculty/staff directories, news, and event information. It will also allow you to update your personal information, view class schedules, see academic reports, student attendance, and communicate with teachers all in one place. It is password protected by a user log-in which means all information is secure.
This online solution for collecting, managing, and securely storing student health information means more accurate and quickly accessible information for our school nurse. It also means less paperwork for you, continuous access to your child(ren)’s health information, and the ability to upload your documents via mobile device. The system is both FERPA and HIPAA compliant and allows you to download and take your child’s health records with you when they graduate. Magnus Health integrates with Veracross so you will be able to log in through the Parent Portal starting in early August.
Starting with the 2023-24 school year, all health forms must be submitted online through Magnus Health. Forms will NOT be accepted by mail, email, or fax, and forms may not be dropped off at the school.
