    Student Medical Information

    The Bay School uses the Magnus Health Student Medical Record (SMR) system to collect student health information for the upcoming school year. Magnus Health SMR is an easy-to-use, secure website for submitting health information online.
     
    Parents and guardians may now access their account via the Magnus Health link on their My Bay Homepage (to log-in, please read the website how-to section below). After logging in, your unique link to the Magnus Health Portal can be found on the “Resource Board.”
     
    After you log into Magnus and take the parent tutorial, you can fill out and submit all of the requested information. You do not have to complete the process all at once, as the program saves your work as you finish a section. In following years, you will simply verify the data and add any new information.

    We ask that you complete this information as soon as possible, but no later than June 19 (with the exception of the Physician Report, due August 1).  Please remember that some forms must be signed by your physician, so allow time for those appointments. Your student’s health record MUST be completed before the first day of school; your student cannot participate in school activities, including athletic practices, orientations and classes, until his or her health record is complete.

    Please review our Magnus Health FAQ for more information. Contact Registrar Rebecca Blackmer at rblackmer@bayschoolsf.org with questions.


    Website Log-In Instructions

    Our website, bayschoolsf.org, provides an overview of school programs, campus facilities, general contact information, and calendars. The homepage also contains regularly updated news and general announcements. You can reach your personal My Bay Homepage by clicking on the light blue "MY BAY" text located underneath the square logo on the left-hand menu.
     
    Each parent/guardian has a unique username. Your username is your first initial, last name, followed by the last two digits of your student’s graduation year. For example, John Smith (whose daughter Lizzy Smith graduates in 2020) is assigned the username jsmith20. If a parent/guardian username conflicts with that of their student, the parent username will end with 201 (ex. jsmith201).Please note, if you are the parent of multiple Bay students, whether current or alumni, please remember to use your eldest student's graduation year. If for instance, John Smith also had a student Elliot in the class of 2015, his login would be jsmith15.
     
    The default password is bayschool123 until changed. After logging in for the first time, the system asks you to choose a personal password. Please update your password and log into the My Bay Homepage as soon as possible to complete your student's medical records.
     
    Check out a guide to your My Bay Homepage here.
     
    Contact Registrar Rebecca Blackmer at rblackmer@bayschoolsf.org with questions or difficulties logging in.

    We encourage families to coordinate carpools to and from school, and we know that many of you are anxious to begin. To find other families near you, first log-in to your My Bay homepage on our website (Need help? Check out the log-in instructions above).

    Meet Your Bay Staffulty

    We've asked our faculty and staff to answer a few fun questions just for this page. Get to know our staffulty a little bit better before you even get to class!

    Question #1: How do you incorporate mindfulness into the classroom/on the field?


    Dave Wang
    Senior Signature Projects

    "I open every class with two minutes of meditation. It really helps students settle into the class and set aside whatever else is going on for them at that moment so they can focus on what they need to focus on.."





    Katherine Riley 
    Humanities & Drama 
    "One of my favorite ways to experiment with mindfulness is using improvisation in the theater classroom; it requires being present with what is and can be a really exhilarating practice. "






    Olga Bailess
    Spanish

    "By making them aware and sensitive to other cultures and beliefs. Class activities, comparing cultures, etc."

    Getting to Bay

    East Bay: Take BART to the Embarcadero or a transbay bus to the Transbay Terminal. From either location, you can board the PresidiGo, a free shuttle to the Presidio. Learn more about the PresidiGo here.

    Marin:
    We are pleased to again offer our Marin bus shuttle, which is only for Bay students. Sign-ups for the bus will begin in mid-August. In addition, Golden Gate Transportation stops near the Palace of Fine Arts, a 10-minute walk from the school.

    Peninsula:
    Take Caltrain to the Millbrae Station, where you can transfer to BART. Take BART to Embarcadero, then hop on the free PresidiGo Shuttle (see above). Or, you can take Caltrain all the way into San Francisco and take the free Caltrain Connector shuttle to the Transbay Terminal to pick-up the PresidiGo.

    San Francisco: We're excited to announce a new transportation option from the more southern parts of San Francisco to Bay. This year, we will charter a school bus to pick up students who live in neighborhoods like Bernal Heights, Glen Park or Visitacion Valley. The bus stops will be determined by where our students live, so stay tuned until this summer for more information and for sign-ups. In addition, several MUNI bus routes stop near the school; lines 28 and 43 drop you off in the Presidio, while the 41 and 45 lines stop just outside the Presidio at the Lombard Gate.
