Program Celebrates School Nurses and Staff Members Who Have Gone Above and Beyond During the Pandemic
RALEIGH, NC, February 10, 2021 – Magnus Health, the leading provider of cloud-based SHR (Student Health Record) solutions designed for K-12 schools, today announced that 95 of its customers have been recognized as part of the company’s “Frontline Heroes” program.
Frontline Heroes recognizes and celebrates those who have gone above and beyond to help K-12 schools manage student health during the pandemic. School administrators nominated the award winners, including nurses and other staff members on the front line serving our students and school communities.
One of the award recipients is Marcy Kwitny, RN, Director of Health Services at the Polytechnic School, in Pasadena, CA. Kwitny said, “Our faculty and staff have been the real heroes in all of this. As a school nurse during a pandemic, it’s been a huge commitment to make sure that no stone is left unturned. Much of our work has been education about social distancing, redesigning spaces on campus, disinfection and cleaning, and surveillance testing to make sure we catch asymptomatic employees and students. Our Magnus Health App that asks about exposure history and health screenings has also been crucial.”
Magnus Health CEO Joe Krivickas said, “We could not be prouder of all the nurses and school staff we are recognizing as Frontline Heroes. Facing unprecedented challenges over the last year, these school professionals showed us all what leadership and grace under pressure looks like. Their example keeps us motivated to continue finding new and better ways to serve and support them, their students, and their school communities.”
