Getting Started

Here are a few of the systems and apps we use throughout the year that you’ll need to access over the summer.

POWERSCHOOL

  • What it is: PowerSchool is Beaver’s online student information system for students and parents. It contains end-of-term grades, class schedules, attendance, zip code list, family directory, and course registration (students only). 
  • How to access it: Families will receive an email in August from the Registrar’s Office with their login information. We ask all parents to go to PowerSchool to update/confirm their contact information. New and returning students and families will see schedule information including advisors, classes, and afternoon activities when PowerSchool goes live at the beginning of August. MS and US schedules go live at the same time.
  • Who to contact if you need help: Contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@bcdschool.org.

MAGNUS HEALTH

  • What it is: Beaver works with Magnus Health to collect and store health forms in its secure database.
  • How to access it: New families will receive an email in early August from Magnus with their username and password. All of the required forms are available on the Magnus website and must be completed before your child can participate in pre-season athletics and school activities. To log in to your Magnus portal, click here.
  • Download the Magnus Health Mobile App before school starts.  Click here for the quick start guide to get the app on your phone.
  • Who to contact if you need help: For questions about health records and forms, contact our School Nurse, Talia Ossowski.

Getting to Beaver

TAKING THE T
The shuttle bus leaves the Chestnut Hill T-Stop (on the D-Line) each morning at 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. (8:30 and 8:40 a.m. on Mondays). In the afternoon, the bus leaves campus at 3:45 and 5:45 p.m. The service is free. Riders should look for a yellow bus with “Bedford Charter” on the side. Beaver offers reduced-price monthly T-passes for students. Please note, all students that live in Boston are eligible for a free T-pass from the city. They will send a communication regarding when these passes will be available in mid to late August. Please email Erika Charles if you have any questions.
