Blessed Trinity Catholic High School continues to utilize two software systems for medical/athletic tracking:
Magnus - required for ALL students. Information must be completed and updated ANNUALLY.
Student Central Big Teams - required for students participating in GHSA sanctioned activities at Blessed Trinity. If you have any questions regarding Student Central Big Teams, please contact our athletic trainers at 678-277-9083, ext.542.
ALL students are required to maintain a current Immunization record; it MUST be on the Georgia Department of Public Health Certificate of Immunization Form 3231 (GA#3231) and be on file with the school by the first day of school or attendance may be suspended. (Handwritten 3231 forms will not be accepted).
Effective July 1, 2021, children 16 years of age and older, who are entering the 11th grade (including new entrants), must have received one booster dose of the meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4), unless their initial dose was administered on or after their sixteenth birthday. If the sixteenth birthday occurs during the 11th grade school year, a 30 day time frame is enforced by state law to become updated with a booster. Georgia DPH Meningitis Vaccine Letter
If your student received the COVID-19 Vaccine, please upload a copy of the vaccine card under the immunization tab. This will not override any other immunizations that are recorded under that tab.
The Clinic does not dispense Over-the-Counter Medications to Students.
Students are allowed to carry OTC medications in their backpack as long as it is labeled with the student's name and is in its original store purchased travel size container. OTC medication is not to be shared with other students, if so disciplinary actions are possible.
All Prescribed Medications must be dispensed through the Clinic and have a Medication Permit Form on file.
Medication dispensed through the Clinic must be in its original container labeled with the student's name, name of the medication, and administering instructions. The exceptions are EpiPens, rescue inhalers and Insulin, these emergency medications can be carried by students once their Action Plan is completed.
If your child has been prescribed any emergency medication such as an EpiPen (allergies), a rescue inhaler (asthma), insulin (diabetes or hyperglycemia), and/or glucagon (hypoglycemia), parents must provide the following forms and medications to the Clinic with NO exceptions:
Action Plan completed by your physician and parent
Medication consent form signed by your physician and parent
Emergency medication prescribed by your child’s physician in the original pharmacy container with the original pharmacy label
Any prescribed medication found on a student without a Medication Permit Form on file in the Clinic will result in medication being removed from student and possible disciplinary actions.
All student medications must be picked up from the Clinic at the end of the school year. Medications will be discarded if not picked up either by parent or student.
If your child has other health conditions that may need to be addressed, please contact the Clinic.
If a student presents with one or more of the following symptoms, they will be sent home and
may not return to campus until they are fever (100.4) and symptom-free for 24 hours or they receive
clearance to return from a physician.
Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
Individuals with known/recurring conditions (i.e. seasonal allergies, gastrointestinal issues) may
return to school while symptomatic with a doctor’s note or if it is a recurring issue that is documented in Magnus.
Symptomatic individuals who are awaiting results of a COVID-19 test are required to remain
home until the test results have been received.
When a student is exhibiting symptoms of an illness, please be aware that the Clinic nurses,
with the direct approval of the principal, have the right to determine when that student is to be
sent home from school.
Masks are optional for all students and staff, illness exceptions noted below.
If a student tests positive, he or she must remain home and isolate for five (5) days. After the five (5) day period, the student may return to school (as long as symptoms have improved and is fever-free for 48 hours). The student must mask for five (5) days following the five (5) day quarantine upon returning to school.
Siblings and household members of the positive case do not need to quarantine as long as they remain symptom-free and are isolated from the positive case. Siblings must mask for the five (5) days while the positive case is in isolation.
If a positive case is identified in a classroom, all students in that class will receive a proximate contact letter.
Schools will continue with frequent cleaning, especially in high touch areas. Ventilation is considered the most effective mitigation strategy. We will continue to ensure that good ventilation is maintained in classrooms, lunchrooms, and meeting areas.
Students must remain home when they are sick and/or experiencing symptoms and should consult with their personal physician to discuss testing.
