Week of May 20, 2019


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,

It's hard to believe that we are finally in the last week of school! It has been an extraordinary year! As we wind down another fantastic year, I'd like to say how thankful I am for the family that we all become each year. It is wonderful to get to know everyone and see all of the students grow throughout the year. It is a dream that this year we will have our inaugural graduating class. I have known some of these students for some time now, and I must say, I will be sad to see them leave, but I can't wait to see where their lives take them. With the last week upon us, we aren't slowing down. Make sure to read through because there is a lot of information about this last week. Make sure you check out the list below for some important items for summer, and make sure to sign up to volunteer for our Last Blast Carnival that's happening THIS WEDNESDAY!

Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth ceremony honors brightest middle school students from around the world

"BALTIMORE May 18, 2019--- Pranav Devalapalli, a student from Atlanta, GA, was honored this weekend as one of the brightest middle school students in the world at an international Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) awards ceremony.

Pranav, a student at Fulton Science Academy School, was honored for their exceptional performance on the SAT, ACT, or similar assessment taken as part of the CTY Talent Search. CTY uses above-grade-level testing to identify advanced students from around the world and provide a clear picture of their true academic abilities.

More than 50, 000 students in the second through eighth grades participated in CTY's Talent Search between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018, representing all 50 states and more than 80 countries. Seventh and eighth graders from this group who scored in the top 12 percent on their test were invited to attend one of CTY's Grand Ceremonies, held May 18 and 19 at Johns Hopkins University. Nearly 2000 students and their families were invited to this year's ceremonies, held in the University's newly renovated Shriver Hall and honoring high scorers from the past two academic years.

'Students, today is about recognition and achievement, but it is also about celebrating your potential to think big ideas, solve tough problems, and work with others to make a difference in your communities and in the world,' said Amy Shelton, CTY's Interim Executive Director and Director of Research. 'I encourage you to continue to seek out opportunities to nurture and grow this great potential in the months and years to come.'

At least 60 of the students honored at the ceremonies achieved a perfect score on the reading or math section of their test. In addition, more than 500 Talent Search participants under age 13 achieved a score of 700 or higher on the math or verbal section of the SAT, and in turn, qualified for CTY's Julian C. Stanley Study of Exceptional Talent. Students honored at the 2019 Grand Ceremonies also qualified for CTY's summer, online, and family programs, through which academically advanced students meet and form a community of engaged learners with other bright students from around the world.

Each year, there are more than 9,500 enrollments by bright pre-college students in CTY Summer Programs, held at 25 sites in the United States and Hong Kong on campuses ranging from Johns Hopkins and Princeton to Loyola Marymount and Dominican Universities. In addition, there are more than 14,500 enrollments in CTY Online Programs courses and more than 4,2000 enrollments in Family Academic Programs each year."

About The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY)

A global leader in gifted education since 1979, CTY is focused on recognizing academic talent in exceptional K-12 students and supporting their growth with courses, services, and resources designed to meet their specific needs. CTY draws students from 50 states and more than 60 countries worldwide. Each year, CTY awards more than $5 million in need-based financial aid to families.

FSA's Annual Sports Banquet was a Huge Success! Thank you to Everyone Who Came!

Huge thanks to everyone who came out to our Annual Sports Banquet! We had an amazing turnout of over 180 people! It was a black tie affair as we honored our student athletes and coaches. FSA's Athletic Program has grown immensely this school year and we would like to thank Athletic Director Alex Ayres for all of the hard work that he has put in over the last year to raise our athletes up and to encourage them to train their hardest and achieve school history. During this semester alone the athletics department has achieved school history. Thank you to all of our athletes, parents, sponsors, and everyone that has made this year and this event a truly memorable one for our student athletes. We can't wait to see where the program goes from here!

A Message From Nurse Amy; Be Sure to Pick up ANY MEDICATIONS from the School Clinic BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR

Dear Parents and Guardians,

My name is Amy Chesna, and I am so happy to be the new School Nurse at FSA.

End of the year check off list:

It is that time of year, to be working into your day, picking up unused medication from the Clinic. This includes, Over-The-Counter, Prescription, Inhalers, and Epi Pens.

These medications will NOT be able to be held over the summer. Please be sure to stop in before the last day of school, May 23rd, before 3:30 pm. ALL medication not picked up from the clinic, before the last day of school, will be considered abandoned. Abandoned medication will be destroyed in accordance with local, state, and federal guidelines, by the nurse and an administrator. We do not store medication over the summer to use for the next year.

Please be on the lookout for our NEW School Nurse webpage in the FSA Website, under School Life. I am excited to get this up and running early summer. In this site, you will be able to download all the forms that are needed to get filled out over the summer, that need physicians signatures, for the next school year. These forms will include Medication forms, (Other-the-Counter & Prescription), and all the Health Care Plans pertaining to your child's Medial Health Conditions. New Care Plans MUST be filled out and signed by the doctor each school year. We do not keep care plans from the previous year. ALL medications, and ALL care plans can be brought to the School Nurse at Orientation, August 2nd, 2019.

Lastly, make sure your child is up to date on their immunizations. Any time your child receives a vaccination, please send in an updated Georgia Registry of Immunization Form #3231 to school. We are required by state to keep updated vaccine records for all of our students. Please refer to the chart below to make sure your child has all the required immunization.

Have a safe, happy, and sunburn free Summer. Use Sunscreen! I look forward to a meeting all of you at orientation, and to a wonderful new school year in August.


A Message From Nurse Amy

This is to remind you of the importance of getting your son or daughter vaccinated before they go back to school this fall. Vaccines are the best way you can protect your child from a number of serious diseases, including meningococcal disease, and cancers caused by HPV, and whooping cough.

As you are making your back-to-school checklist for your preteen, I encourage you to make sure your sons and daughters get all the vaccines that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends for them at ages 11 and 12. Schedule an appointment today for your child to receive all of the vaccines they need for the best protection. CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), and the National Association for School Nurses all agree that your preteen needs the following vaccines:

  • Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY) protects against some of the bacteria that cause meningococcal disease and meningitis. While not very common, these are very serious illnesses and death can occur in as little as 48 hours. Your child will need a booster shot at age 16 to continue providing protection into the late teens/early 20’s.

  • HPV vaccine protects against the infections that can cause HPV cancer. HPV infection is very common and causes more than 31,000 cases of cancer each year in the Unites States; that’s one case of cancer diagnosed every 17 minutes. Both boys and girls should complete the HPV vaccine series before age 13. Preteens need two doses of HPV vaccine, given six to twelve months apart. If you wait, your child may need three doses over six months.

  • One dose of Tdap vaccine as a booster is for continued protection against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). This vaccine keeps preteens healthy and prevents spread of pertussis to babies who are too young to be protected by vaccination.

  • Preteens and teens should also get the flu vaccine every year, ideally by the end of October if possible.

The State of Georgia requires the Meningococcal (MCV4), and a Tdap (booster) vaccines be done for school entry; to learn more about state immunization requirements, go to: www.immunize.org/laws.

To learn more about adolescent vaccines, please visit CDC’s website for parents about vaccines for children at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents, or you can visit www.middleschoolhealth.org for the Middle School Health Starts Here website.

Home Visits; A Great Activity for Your Student, No Matter Their Grade Level!

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.

Here is some feedback from our parents:

  • “Early in the school year, a group of teachers took the time to come to our home to meet us and discuss the school program with us. That event brought us back to the time in which schooling was a true partnership between parent and teacher and reaffirmed in our minds that FSA truly cares about the development of our children”
  • “We even had two teachers visit us at our home. They were a pleasure to meet and we could clearly see how much they enjoy teaching students.”
  • “Thank you very much for your visit and the chocolates yesterday. We enjoyed having you over very much. I also want to thank you for turning math from the most complicated and somewhat scary subject into one of our most favorites.”
  • “We all enjoyed your visit last night to our home. It was such a pleasure to informally get to know both of you. My son thought it was really cool that two teachers came to his house. He talked about it the whole way to school this morning in carpool. Personally, I admire the dedication you both have for your jobs. It makes a big difference in a student’s attitude toward school. Your visit left no doubt in my mind that FSA was the right decision for my son.”
  • “I just wanted to write on behalf of my husband and I and thank you for visiting our child. He loved having you both come and visit. We appreciate the level of caring and attention that you have consistently shown our family. It is rare to see such a dedication from teachers for their jobs. We can tell that you love teaching and you care for our children. Thank you for visiting our child when he was not feeling well.”

How can I schedule a home visit?

Very simple.

To schedule an elementary school 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.

To schedule a middle or high school school home visit: Simply email sduman@fultonscienceacademy.org with some suggested dates/times, as well as your students' name(s) and homeroom assignments. Mr. Duman will be in touch to confirm final details.

Depending on our teacher’s availability, at least two teachers will be together to visit our students and parents at their homes. The best times to schedule a home visit are weekdays after 5:00 pm, and anytime during the weekends, except Sunday mornings. For any questions you have about this program, send an e-mail to homevisit@fultonscienceacademy.org

Attendance Matters!

Please remember that

Middle and High School Students have College Guidance and Enrichment

from 2:40pm - 3:15pm.

School Medicine Policy 2018 - 2019 (Includes FAQ)


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.


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.


  • 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.
