PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


I hope that everyone has enjoyed their long weekend. I would like to begin this newsletter thanking one of South Korea's top gifted school, the Gyeonggi Science High School for the Gifted from Suwon, South Korea, who came and visited our school today! The School's representatives were welcomed by our adorable elementary school students with flowers and a warm greeting. They visited with us to get a first-hand look at FSA’s STEAM curriculum in action. We thank you for taking the time to travel so far and for giving us the opportunity to meet such wonderful people whose mission in life is to provide the best education possible for today's youth. We look forward to seeing you all again in the future!

We just got news not long ago that our Future city team won the most sustainable food production system award at the nationals Competition in Washington DC. Apparently, this the third ever award by a Georgia team in National Future City history. Congrats to our wonderful coaches and students!


A few of our students and faculty spent some time over this long weekend at the history Bowl Competition! Our History Team competed in Calhoun Georgia on Saturday, February 16th. I'm proud to say that our Team has qualified to Nationals in History Bowl Additionally, two of our students advanced the National History Bee individually. To read more about this, please scroll further below.


I want to thank all of the parent volunteers who helped in making this year's Valentine's Day dances the best that we have had! Students and teachers alike had an absolute blast and had so much fun with all of the activities of the day. It was a great day, so thank you for all of your hard work! Please enjoy a link to our Facebook page below to a video of some of our elementary students enjoying the dance, as well as a picture gallery from the dances.

Our Band and Orchestra teachers here at FSA have some exciting competitions coming up. These include our Alma Mater Lyric Contest, School Spirit Song Contest, and 2019 NAfME Student Composers Competition. With the Alma Mater Lyric Contest, our first graduating class will be graduating in May, and it would be wonderful for them to have a song to remember their time at FSA. Do you think you have the perfect song for FSA School Spirit? FSA is looking for song that tells the story of what it means to be a MUSTANG! Lastly, the NAfME Student Composers Competition is seeking original music written by student composers for featured performance in the Young Composers Concert. To learn more about all three of these contests, read below.


Parents and middle school students, the 2019 Math League Contest for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will be held at FSA Campus on Tuesday February 26th, 2019. Please mark your calendars!

FSA HISTORY BOWL TEAM ADVANCES TO NATIONALS!

Big picture

Over the weekend, FSA's High School History Team traveled to Calhoun High School where they qualified for the National High School History Team Bowl. FSA had the youngest team at the competition which included a 7th grader, 9th grader and 3 10th graders. They competed against mostly juniors and seniors. Also, FSA students Weston B. (7th grade) won second place and Aubrey L. (10th grade) won fourth place in the High School History Bee, which qualifies them for the National High School History Bee. Both of these National Tournaments will be held in Arlington, VA at the end of April.


FSA's team started their morning facing four veteran high school teams in four separate rounds. Only four high school teams with the highest scores from the preliminary four rounds advance to the championship rounds and the other teams are eliminated. FSA remained undefeated in the preliminary rounds, beating Rockmart HIgh School in the first round with a score of 240-160, Gordon Central High School in the second round with a score of 150-140 and tied Oak Mountain High School and Woodland High School in the third and fourth rounds. FSA seventh grader, Weston B., answered both tie breaker questions in the third and fourth rounds for the win, which qualified FSA to advance to the championship rounds.


The History Bee is an individual event instead of a team event. The four students with the highest total scores from the first four preliminary rounds advance to the History Bee Final Championships and the other students are eliminated. Weston B. and Aubrey L. made the final four cut to compete in the History Bee Finals which was held after the lunch break. Instead of taking a lunch, Weston and Aubrey took a geography quiz to qualify for the National Geography Olympiad. They will be notified of their exam results in a few days.


During the single elimination championship rounds, FSA's History Team faced Rockmart High School during the first match. FSA beat their team with a score of 140-100 after four rounds. For the final championship game, FSA competed against Oak Mountain, whom they had barely defeated in the preliminary rounds. Oak Mountain won first place and FSA won second place. The top two teams from this tournament advance to Nationals. Way to Go FSA!!

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.
