The St. Mark's Portal provides everything from contacts to classes to calendars in one place with tools that allow you to easily filter and find what is most important to you. The Portal includes announcements and assignments, integrates athletics schedules, and has customized settings and calendars. With an intuitive dashboard and easy navigation, you will be a Portal pro in no time. Portal access was established during the application process; parents who do not yet have portal access will receive an email from the school with login information. In late June, you will have full access to the portal - stay tuned for more information!
These two forms require a physician’s signature and are also available to view or print through Magnus Health. Please be sure that you have also signed these forms. We will collect the forms electronically through Magnus Health, and the online help resources will show you how to upload these forms, once you have access.
- Medical Examination by a Doctor Form
All students must have an annual Medical Examination by Doctor Form completed by their physician. If your child has had a healthy check-up within the last year, you will not likely need to schedule another appointment for your physician to complete the forms; however, you'll want to get your form to your doctor as soon as possible since they can be backed up with camp and school forms this time of year
- Prescription Medication Form
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.
All students must have an updated immunization record on file in Magnus Health. The only acceptable exclusion from immunization compliance is a Medical Contraindication written by a student’s physician, which will be reviewed and accepted annually on a case-by-case basis.
Information regarding uniforms are available online. We also hold several Used Uniform Sales throughout the summer, where parents may purchase gently used uniforms for the upcoming year. The dates of those sales will be shared via email.
We have several traditions at St. Mark’s that are unique to our community, including our red and blue spirit teams. This program, started in 2011, began as a way to promote school spirit and friendly competition. Families are assigned a color upon admission, and they retain that “red” or “blue” designation throughout their life here. We are careful to assign the same color for newly enrolled siblings so there will be no divided households. Throughout the year, we have several spirit team competitions, from box top challenges, to field day activities, to reading challenges! Students may earn points for their spirit team throughout the year, and at the end of Field Day, the spirit team champion is announced.
A required part of the uniform for each Preschool 3s through 8th grade student is a spirit team t-shirt in either red or navy. To learn which color you are on, follow these simple steps:
- Log in to your Portal Account
- Select your child’s name in the top left hand corner
- Click the “Contact Card” tab
- Spirit Team color will display on the left side of the screen under “General Information”
We offer a wide variety of sports through our athletics department! Is your new lion ready to join a team? Registration will take place on the portal over the summer. Stay tuned for emails with more information on registration and evaluation dates for fall sports.
