Summer FAQs

Looking for something this summer? The list below is a compliation of frequently asked questions that we receive during the summer.

           

 

Where Do I Update Student Information and Emergency Medical Information?

All student information and emergency medical information must be completed on RenWeb by Monday, July 11, 2016. To log in to RenWeb, click here.

  • This information is carried by teachers on excursions off campus and is presented to emergency personnel, if your child is ever injured on campus or away from school.
  • Please list all contact numbers, emergency contacts, and current medical insurance information.
  • We will post our Classroom Rosters online in August.  You may choose the information that is visible to other families on the custodial parent information page in RenWeb.
  • Indicate each email address you would like included on the Parent Email Distribution List. We will send out announcements, reminders, and other pertinent school information by electronic distribution.  You may also indicate additional phone numbers for Parent Alert, our emergency contact system.
  • If your child divides time between two families, please list both families in RenWeb. Any parent may set up a RenWeb login to access classroom newsletters, photo galleries, and student reports.

What Permission Information is Needed?

All permission information must be completed on RenWeb by Monday, July 11, 2016. To log in to RenWeb, click here.
  • Permission to Release: Identifies other adults who are authorized to pick up your child from school.
  • Field Trips & School Events: Gives inclusive permission slip for all field trips and school events. Parents will also be asked to sign a permission slip for each field trip during the school year.
  • Photographic Portraits: Gives permission to take and use photos of your child for school publications, St. Mark’s website, Facebook, and local press. Note that we never publish students' last names online.
  • Independent Student: gives permission for Middle School students to leave the campus unsupervised at dismissal time to walk, ride a bike, or take a bus home.

Please complete all four permission statements; each requires a digital parent/custodian signature

Which Medical Forms Do I Need to Update?

All students must have the Medical Examination by Doctor Form completed by their physician and turned in by August 1, 2016. If your child takes a prescription medication or an “off-label-instruction” over-the-counter medicine that will be given at school, please also have your doctor fill out the Prescription Medication Form. You will have the opportunity to permit dispensing of these and all other over-the-counter medications online through our new health software system, Magnus Health. These two forms require a physician's signature.

Magnus Health is accessible via Single Sign-On through the St. Mark’s portal just like Renweb. Once logged into the portal, click the new Magnus Health icon (located next to the Renweb icon). Magnus Health will launch in a new tab and you will be welcomed by a Tutorial Video; please watch this video. Additional tutorial and help resources are available by clicking the Need Help? Icon located in the upper right hand corner of the Magnus Health window. The Medical Examination by Doctor Form Form and Prescription Medication Form are available through Magnus Health as well. We will collect these forms through Magnus Health, and the online help resources will show you how to upload these forms.

What Extended Care Programs are Available and Where do I Register My Child?

Registration for Before School, After School, and Extended Day (for Preschool 2s students) takes place on RenWeb.  Spots are guaranteed up until the deadline; after July 11, we cannot guarantee you a spot in these programs. 

To learn more about the Before School, After School and Extended Day Programs, click here.

I'm a Parent of a New Student and My RenWeb Account Doesn't Have Many Forms!

A note to new families:
We will be completing the roll over process in RenWeb in mid-to-late-June. At this point, your student will join his or her new class in our system, and you will be able to access and edit all of the necessary forms posted on RenWeb. When the rollover process is complete, you will receive an email notification. At that point, you will be able to log on, and make changes to the following items: Student Information, Student Medical Information, Permission Information, Before and After School Registration and Extended Day Registration. In the mean time, feel free to log in and update your Custodial Parent Information and Grandparent Information. We appreciate your patience!

When do Tuition Payments Begin?

As a reminder, tuition for the 2016-2017 school year will begin drafting June 1, 2016. Whether you are using the lump-sum, two payment, or ten payment option, the first draft will occur on June 1.

Remember to check your student account to pay all outstanding balances. Any outstanding balances will prevent your final report card from being mailed.
