PRINCIPAL'S CORNER


Dear Students, Faculty, and Parents,


I hope that you had a great weekend. I would like to share a few items with you.


I'll begin by saying that this week will be Mrs. Todd's last week at FSA. She is moving to Georgia Cyber Academy at the beginning of next week. We thank Mrs. Todd very much for everything she has done for our students and faculty! She has been an integral part of our FSA Team for the last year and we wish her congratulations on her for her new position. We will miss her very much! In her last week at FSA, Mrs. Todd will be training our new assistant principal of discipline, Mrs. Griffis. That being said, I would like to introduce our new assistant principal of discipline, Mrs. Holli Griffis.


Mrs. Griffis is the former Director of Counseling (K-12)/High School Counselor at Pinecrest Academy in Cumming. She is certified in Counseling and Secondary Math and has close to twenty years experience in the area of Counseling.

This expansion will provide us with 25 additional classes with state of art high school laboratories, music and art classes, a large innovation lab, and a large area for high school students to spend their times during the day. The expansion is planned to be completed by August 2020.

Club Change / Request Information

We have had many students and parents with club selection and change questions.


If your student would like to change their club, they will need to fill out a "Club Request / Change Form (2018 - 2019)." These forms can be found at the front desk. Please keep in mind that you will need 1 form per club that you are wanting to change, i.e. if you want to change 3 clubs, you will need to fill out 3 forms.


Also, please keep in mind that club changes will only be approved if there is room in the club and if your student meets the necessary entrance requirements if there are any.


Steps to Follow on Club Change Form:

  • Get approval signatures from BOTH club teachers (the one you are leaving and the one you are joining.)
  • Get an approval signature from parent
  • Return the Form to the Front Desk
  • Only once you have been given your new club schedule, can you begin attending your new club


Please be reminded that if you registered for outside sponsored / paid clubs, your student's club schedule will not reflect these clubs. If you registered for Chess or Private Music Clubs, your child should attend this club on their scheduled day. Academic Teams required an Application that was due on Wednesday, August 8th. If you would like to join an Academic Team, please speak with the team's head coach about getting an application.

To keep our FSA families better informed, our weekly updates will be going out on Thursdays or Fridays every week. We just wrapped up our Second Week last week as a total success. The students are all engaged, learning (and retaining the information), and (most importantly for us) having FUN while doing it! A few parents are still tracking down instruments and we're opening up spots for newcomers (we've decided to leave registration open year-round). As many parents have had similar questions, we hope to address those here.

Ukulele Club: The kids paired up and took turns using the right hand to pluck two strings at once (this can be very difficult for small hands). Everyone was very respectful of one-another while they awaited their turns to demonstrate the exercise for the class. The rest of our classroom instruments are all strung and set up for play, so we will begin our first Ensemble (everyone playing together) exercises next week. They will receive handouts to take home. These kids are a BLAST to work with!

Violin Club: Students learned bow-handling and proper care (this is monumentally important, as young students tend to break their bows, or ruin the bow hairs by touching them too much), as well as string names (Letter-Names AND Solfege). Again, the kids were very supportive of one-another when demonstrating their exercises (pizzicato for this week) and everyone did a fantastic job. The older kids (we have a few fifth graders) took right to everything (they will be progressing at a faster rate, a they are older and have more-developed hands) and even helped the little ones. These are exactly the types of Ensemble Concepts and the kind of Musicianship that we strive to instill. If your fifth-grader is in Violin Club, tell them, "GOOD JOB!," for us once again. We will begin our Ensemble exercises next week. Mr. Voss ("Mr. Brandon" to the kids) has reported that this is a great group to work with!


VIOLIN RENTALS: The rest of our classroom and rental violins will be arriving tomorrow (they were bundled with our ukuleles, and a few instruments were shipped to the wrong location), so I will have those set up (strung and taped) over the weekend and ready to send them home with those students whose parents have requested a rental instrument ($25 per month added to your monthly invoice for a Violin Rental). For those of you who have already requested a rental, you will receive a confirmation on Monday (our Violin and Club students' appointments are scheduled for Tuesdays through Saturdays) and we will send it home with your child after their lesson/Club. If any of you would like to rent a violin, please send us an email requesting one, so we may ensure we have enough to go around (the bundled shipments take a while, but we can order single instruments within 24-48 hours through Amazon Prime - many of our music retail/wholesale connections are also able to provide us with cost-effective, same-or-next-day instruments, if need be).

KEYBOARDS: Some of our parents are still seeking affordable keyboards for our Beginner Students. As that market is completely flooded with quality instruments, we recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, and at least three octaves. We recommend shying away from "mini" and MIDI Keyboard Controllers, as those are limited in range and designed for recording music, as opposed to practice/performance. This helps with the muscular development of the hands, and has a similar "feel" to the upright pianos we use in our lessons. If you have something in mind, but aren't quite sure, get in touch with us and we can help you narrow your options.

Classical Guitars: Most parents have updated us on guitars. If you are still seeking a suitable instrument, reach out to Mr. Kirkland (this email or business phone number below) or our Associate Director, Mr. Ducharme (david@southernartmusic.com).

For any other instruments, please reach out to us, and we will help you track something down!

We are very happy to be working with you all this year for your children's Music Education! Next month, we will begin our Referral Discount for September and October. You will find all of the information in our "Week 4" Update (First week of September). We are always looking to grow and improve things, so feel free to let us know how we are doing! We usually have someone available on the website chat and by phone. For emails, as we've been receiving a LOT of inquiries, we try to respond within 24 hours.

Grandparents Breakfast

Big picture

At Fulton Science Academy, we know the important role grandparents play in our student's lives. As such, we like inviting our grandparents to come and enjoy a special day here at FSA, along with their grandchildren.


The purpose of this special program is three-fold:

  1. To honor grandparents;
  2. To give grandparents an opportunity to get more information about their grandchildren’s school; and
  3. To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer.

We encourage students, parents, and grandparents to come together to celebrate!

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.


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.

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.


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.
