Health and Wellness: School Nurse and Mental Health Counselor

Welcome! Mrs. Cele Walter is your School Nurse. Ms. Connie McSherry is your Mental Health Counselor. It is our sincere hope that you are well and coping with all that has disrupted, challenged and stressed you and your family during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Ms. Connie McSherry, LCSW, is the Mental Health Counselor at PVI High School. She works closely with students in all grades to help them manage things like anxiety, panic, depression, school and athletic performance, and even issues between friends. Students meet with Ms. McSherry individually or in groups during the school day or even after school if needed.  She loves working with high school students who she sees as so open and always willing to try hard to grow and be happy in high school. She has close to 20 years experience with students at both the high school and college level as a counselor and coach.  

Mrs. Cele Walter, RN CSN-NJ is the school nurse. She is starting her 15th year here and considers it a privilege to work with and care for the students at Paul VI. She has an extensive background in pediatrics, spending her first 20 years after college working at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as both a staff nurse and nurse manager. She is grateful for her experience there and believes that it greatly contributes to her ability to best serve the community at Paul VI.

Ms. McSherry and Mrs. Walter agree that physcial mental and emotional health go hand in hand and enjoy working together to best support the well-being of all of the students at Paul VI. 

Of course, we do not know what the 2020-2021 school year will look like. We hope we will all be in school in September and that our students will be participating in all academics, activites and athletics.

Here is information regarding required health forms in anticipation of school opening and fall sport practices beginning as usual:

MAGNUS HEALTH STUDENT MEDICAL RECORD
 
One of my responsibilities as your nurse is gathering all required medical information for your student. The healthcare management system we utilize at PVI is called Magnus Health SMR (Student Medical Record). This is a web-based system. You will have continuous access to your child’s health record as well as the ability to make updates when needed. You will also have the option to take the digital health file with them you after your student graduates.  

CLASS OF 2020: 
Congratulations PVI Class of 2020! If you would like to have continued access to your student's Magnus Health SMR, you MUST download the Mobile App. 
Just go to your student's Magnus Health page and follow the instructions. PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE APP AND LOG IN TO THE APP BEFORE JUNE 30TH!! 
 
CLASSES OF 2021, 2022, 2023:
To access “Magnus Health Portal”, log in to the parent portal of the Paul VI website, www.pvihs.org. Just select the “Resources” tab, then “Magnus Health”. PLEASE DO NOT UPDATE ANYTHING DURING JUNE 2020! This is when we roll over the school year. 
 
CLASS OF 2024:
You will have access to Magnus Health BEGINNING JULY 1, 2020
Your log-in is the one you used when you registered your student for Paul VI. On July 1, click on "PAUL VI PORTAL" on the Paul VI website, www.pvihs.org.  Select the “Resources” tab, then “Magnus Health”.

PLEASE EMAIL ME DIRECTLY IF YOU DO NOT REMEMBER YOUR LOGIN/PASSWORD.
 
By August 1, 2020, I am asking that you complete all of the required items in your student’s Magnus Health SMR. This is vital so that preparations can be made prior to the first day of school. No, we do NOT know exactly what school will look like in the fall. It is our hope that we will be back, so please try to complete everything by early August.
 
Fall athletes must have items completed PRIOR to the first fall practice in August. No student will be permitted to try out unless all sport requirements have been met.
 
You will receive weekly reminders as long as there are outstanding items to be completed. 

New parents, please reserve about 60 minutes to complete the items. The good news is that you will not have to repeat this work next year: the data is securely stored, so going forward you will simply provide updates to the record as needed.
 
Questions or Problems?

If you are having difficulty navigating the Magnus system, entering data online, or downloading the hardcopy coversheets and forms, or if you have any other questions, please contact customer support at Magnus Health SMR by phone at 877.461.6831or by email at service@magnushealthportal.com

For any other health-related questions, please email me at cwalter@pvihs.org.
