Important Note

You will not be able to update your Magnus Health record for the 2022–23 school year until the GDS student information system has been updated to the 2022–23 school year. This usually happens by mid-June. We will email you once the Magnus Health portal for 2022–23 is ready. We ask that you enter the health information required within your Magnus Health account for each child attending Greensboro Day School no later than August 12, 2022.

Health Forms & Magnus Health

GDS uses the Magnus Health SMR electronic health record (EHR) for all student medical information. We ask that you enter the health information required within your Magnus Health account for each child attending Greensboro Day School no later than August 12, 2022.

Please reserve 20 to 30 minutes per child, depending on your particular circumstances. For current families, we ask that you review and update your child’s health information. New families will need to enter their health information into the system, but the good news is that you will only have to repeat this work next year. Your data is securely stored, so going forward you will simply provide updates to the record as needed. You will receive weekly reminders as long as there are outstanding items in your account. 

All sports physicals, medication authorization forms, and non-prescription medication forms must be uploaded directly into the portal after being signed by your child’s physician.

How to Access your Magnus Health Account
