ACCREDITED AND STEM CERTIFIED COLLEGE PREP GIFTED SCHOOL

Week of October 8, 2018


PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


I hope that everyone has enjoyed their long weekend!


I want to begin by reminding our 9th - 11th Grade Students and their parents that the PSAT will be held at our school THIS WEDNESDAY (Tomorrow) beginning at 8:00am. The exam will be held in the modular building and you MUST arrive on time, otherwise, students will not be allowed to enter a testing room once the testing process has begun. Good luck to all of our students who are taking the exam!


After the PSAT our High School Students will attend a Career Fair Hosted by FSA! This is an exciting opportunity for our students and a great way to learn about the application and interview process, and so much more. From 1pm - 3pm there will be a career showcase, mock interviews, exhibitors, etc. and then from 3pm - 4pm, there will be a panel discussion where students can ask questions. These students will have there lunch in between the PSAT and the Career Fair, between 12pm - 1pm. Please be sure to read the Career Fair Section below for very important information!


We began this week straight away with the first Middle School Field Trip of the year! Today, our Middle School Students visited the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. This week seems to be a week full of field trips. On Thursday, our 2nd Graders will visit Warbington Farms and on Friday our 5th Graders will visit Piedmont Park! If your students will be going on these field trips don't forget to make sure that they have a packed disposable lunch and please also make sure that they are wearing their red uniform shirt, along with uniform bottoms!


I want to wish good luck to our Girls Varsity Volleyball Team as they finish out the season this week with their last two games! Both of these games are away games. This evening the team will play against Notre Dame beginning at 5:00pm and they will finish with an away game against Dominion that will begin at 5:00pm. Our girls have played so well this year and I know that myself and everyone at FSA is very proud of everything that both our Middle School Team and Varsity Team have accomplished this year.


Lastly, I want to take a moment to congratulate our Math Team on all of the hard work they have already put in during this first couple of months of school this year. On September 28th they competed in the Luella High School Math Tournament with spectacular results . This past weekend, on October 6, our middle school math teams participated at their first math competition of the year at South Forsyth Middle School in the Math League MATHCOUNTS competition, again with wonderful results. Be sure to read more about these recent competitions below!

Character Ed Trait of the Month: (October) Responsibility



Being responsible doesn't just mean turning your homework in on time! This character trait involves being prepared for class, keeping track of your assignments, completing your chores and tasks at home and owning up to mistakes that you've made. It's irresponsible to blame others and to make excuses.

Student Congressional Award

We would like to invite our students to think about participating in the Student Congressional Awards.

The Program Page for the Student Congressional Award reads, "The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive. The program is open to all youth regardless of ability, circumstance, or socioeconomic status. Participants earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Certificates and Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Voluntary Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. Earning the Award is a fun and interesting way to get more involved in something you already enjoy or something you’d like to try for the first time. You move at your own pace, on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals.

Regardless of your situation, you can earn The Congressional Award. The Congressional Award has no minimum grade point average requirements. It accommodates young people with special needs or disabilities who are willing to take the challenge."

HOME VISITS - A FUN WAY TO MEET YOUR TEACHERS!

Home visits are a casual way for your child to spend time with his/her teacher in the comfort of their home. Teachers enjoy having a chance to see children in this comfortable environment, doing whatever makes them most happy and spend time with children and their parents outside of a regular school day. Please see some pictures from our most recent home visit.

To schedule a home visit, simply email junal@fultonscienceacademy.org with some suggested dates/times, as well as your students' name(s) and homeroom assignments. Ms. Unal will be in touch to confirm final details.

on the morning of the absence.


For full attendance policies please see the student handbook.

in case of inclement weather / Cyber School Days

Closing or delay of opening due to inclement weather:

School may be cancelled due to weather conditions. There are many factors that are taken into consideration when making the decision to close. First and foremost is safety, the ability to remove snow and/or ice at the school, or other conditions that could pose a danger to the children, staff, or facility. In the event that FSAPS is closed or delays its opening, the school will place the notice on the local television and radio stations Channel 2 and WSB. If school is closed due to weather conditions, the decision will usually be made by the principal before 6:30 A.M. and announced on local television and radio stations. FSAPS’s first concern is for the safety of our students. We understand that our students live in a wide range of areas. Although FSAPS may be open during inclement weather, it may be unsafe for some of our students to attend. For instance, if a student lives in North Forsyth, then that area may have extreme ice even though the FSAPS location does not or a student’s driveway may be steep and shaded so the sun does not melt the ice until several hours after school starts. Please note that in these circumstances parents need to call the school and report their circumstances, so that the student’s tardy (if they delay coming in) or absence due to severe or unsafe weather conditions will be excused. (Student Handbook, pg's 13 - 14)

Cyber School Days:

If school is closed due to inclement weather, we may implement a Cyber School Day. This would require the students to have access to the internet for retrieving online schoolwork and communication with their teacher(s). Participation in a Cyber School Day through approved completion of schoolwork will be considered a day of attendance. (Student Handbook, pg's 13 - 14)

School closings announced during the school day:

If FSAPS is closing due to weather conditions during the school day, FSAPS will call and/or email all parents to pick up their students. We will announce this at FSAPS, via email message, signage, and on the local news stations, as well. FSAPS will remain at the school until all students are safely picked up or other arrangements are made with the parents. For all weather related issues, periodically check the news for weather related closings/delays or call and speak with the Front Office. If possible, the FSAPS website will also indicate the closing notice and we will attempt to email all students. (Student Handbook, pg's 13 - 14)

School Medicine Policy 2018 - 2019 (Includes FAQ)

OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATIONS

Aspirin, Tylenol, Neosporin, and other patient over-the-counter drugs are not available through FSAPS. Should you wish for your child to have access to these medications, you must sign an
‘Authorization to Administer Medication Form’ and leave a supply with the front office.

PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS

The medication to be administered by designated school personnel must be sent directly from the pharmacy or physician’s office or brought to school by the student’s parent/guardian. The school must receive an ‘Authorization to Administer Medication Form’ signed by the student’s physician and/or parent/guardian.

The following information must be printed clearly on the medication container:

  • Student’s Name

  • Name of the medication

  • Dosage

  • Time the medication must be taken.

    Bring in only the amount of medication that is needed for a school day. In the case of prolonged need, send in the amount for a clearly specified period. Written authorization to dispense medications shall be limited to two weeks unless otherwise prescribed by a physician. Medication shall only be dispensed out of its original container, which must be labeled with the child’s name. Extra medication will not be sent home with a student. All medication will be kept in a secure location in the clinic and/or front office.


Parents, please remind your students that if they are feeling unwell that they need to first visit the clinic and be assessed by our school nurse, who will then call you in the event that the student should go home. Students should not use their phones during the school day to contact parents.


FAQ:

  • Does the school provide medications?

No. The school does not provide medication. The student's parent or guardian must bring the student's medicine to the front office or school clinic, along with an "Authorization to Give Medication" Form.

  • May the parent/guardian bring and give medications to their student?

Yes, a parent/guardian may come to school and give their child medication. Parents should still follow the visitor sign in procedures.

  • Where can I find Authorization Forms?

Authorization forms can be found at the front desk or school clinic.

  • Why do I need a doctor's health care provider's note for adult strength over-the-counter medication when my health care provider has told me it is appropriate for my student's weight (or condition)?

The school nurse wants to protect your child and must follow guidelines for dosage recommended by the manufacturer.

  • How do students get their medications during after school hours?

The principal, along with administration and the school nurse will determine by whom and how medication will be secured and administered during after school hours.

  • Why do medications have to be in the original container?

The original container provides information from the manufacturer about over-the-counter medications, including the name of the medication, the proper dose, how the medication should be given, how often the medication should be given, possible side effects, and when the medication is no longer effective (an expiration date.)

The original prescription container includes the name of the medication, the patient's name, the prescribing licensed health care provider, the proper dose, how and when it should be given, when the medication expires, and the pharmacy where the medication was purchased. All of this information is necessary for the school nurse to administer medication in a safe manner.

  • What if my child's medication or dosage changes?

Parents/Guardians must inform the school nurse of any medication changes. New medication or different doses will not be given unless the parent completes a new medication form. The information on the prescription bottle label must match the new consent form.

  • Can my child take herbal medication at school?

No. Over-the-counter diet pills, vitamins, dietary supplements, including minerals or herbs will not be given.

  • May my child carry cough drops at school?

No. Cough-drops must be left in the clinic along with a completed "Authorization to Give Medication at School" Form.

  • May my child carry over the counter medication at school?

No. It must be left in the clinic along with and "Authorization to Give Medication at School" Form.

  • Can my child carry his/her Epipen, Insulin, or Asthma Inhaler at school?

Yes, students may carry inhalers and Epipens or insulin with a completed "Authorization to Carry Prescription Medication" Form. You can get this form from the school nurse.

  • Why is there a place for the health care provider to sign the authorization form for my child to carry their inhaler/epipen at school?

The health care provider's signature indicates that your child has been instructed on the proper use of their inhaler/Epipen and that your child is responsible for administering it to himself/herself without supervision.

  • Why do I have to have a prescription label on the inhaler/Epipen?

The prescription on the inhaler/epipen includes the child's name, how often it is to be used, and what dose is appropriate for your child. It is difficult to keep the label directly on the inhaler/epipen.

  • If I give my child Tylenol for a fever, can I still send them to school?

If the fever is more than 100.9 degrees F before you give them Tylenol, then your child cannot come to school. Your child may return to school when his/her temperature is below 101 degrees F without Tylenol or any other fever reducing medication for 24 hours, if s/he feels well and is not showing signs of illness.

  • If I give my child Tylenol for aches and pains can I still send them to school?

You child is welcome at school while taking Tylenol or any other over-the-counter medication for an injury, dental work, etc. However, if the medication is for a sore throat, earache or flu like symptoms, please keep them at home.

  • Why can't I put medicine in my child's lunch box if he/she has to take medicine at lunch?

Medication in a lunch box could be lost or taken by another child. If a staff member found the medication it could be considered an illegal drug with consequences according to the Code of Conduct. Medications must be brought to the front office or school clinic by parents/guardians in the original and properly labeled container.

  • If I treat my child for lice can I send them back to school the same day?
Yes. Please bring your child free of live lice back to the school nurse to be rechecked.
  • Why do I have to bring in a box top to verify lice treatment?
A box top from the product provides the School Nurse with the treatment type that was used and confirms that treatment was provided for the child since a prescription is not necessary.
  • How much time do I have to get to the school if the nurse calls me to pick up my child because he/she is sick?
You, or a person you designate, should arrive within one hour of being called. Most school clinics have an area where your child can rest for a short period of time. If your child has a fever of 104 degrees F or higher, you, or a person you designate must arrive as soon as possible.
  • How long will my child's over-the-counter medication be given at school?
Over-the-counter medication may be given with the parent/guardian permission as needed throughout the school year. A health care provider's note is required for over-the-counter medication that is given for more than 10 consecutive school days.
  • What happens to my child's medication at the end of the school year?
All medications not picked up by parents/guardians by the last day of school will be destroyed.
  • May my child share over-the-counter medication with another student?
No. Students may not share any medication, whether over-the-counter or prescription. Doing so could be a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and could also result in the student losing his/her privilege of carrying medication on his/her person.
  • Why should my child take the first dose of new medication at home?
We want your student back to school as soon as possible after an illness, diagnosis, or medication change. It is for the safety of your student that you observe him/her for any unsuspected reactions to a new medication and report it to the prescribing licensed health care provider.

aftercare hours reminder


Parents, please be reminded that After - School Care is provided every day from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm for a fee of $15.00 per day or $200.00 for the month. We ask that parents pick up any remaining students by 6:00 pm, and no later, as the school closes at 6:00pm. Sometimes our Academic Teams will stay later, but these students are not considered to be in After-Care. There are also sometimes outside organizations that use our facility for sports events, so it may look like there are still plenty of people here, but these more often than not, do not include aftercare students. Thank you for your understanding.
