From the Nurse

For your child to comply with state law, parents must turn in proof of all the required immunizations.

If your child has a medical condition of Seizure disorder, Diabetes, Anaphylactic Food Allergy, or Asthma an updated annual action plan is required. This must be signed by a doctor. Please submit all 2021-2022 action plans to the nurses by September 1, 2021. You may have your student bring it to the nurse or email it to  Martha.Mcbride@g.fayar.net. Thank you.

Summer is a great time for preparing for the next school year. If your child is, or will be turning, 16 by September 1st, they will need a Meningococcal immunization after they turn 16. For your child to comply with state law, you must turn in proof of this immunization by October 1st. If your child does not have all the required immunizations by this date, they may be removed from school until proof is given to your school nurse.

If your child has an immunization exemption, the Arkansas Department of Health requires you to reapply for exemption each year. Once you receive the exemption letter from the state you must supply a copy to the nurse’s office. You may have your student bring it to the nurse or email it to Martha.Mcbride@g.fayar.net. Please call with any questions, 445-1222.


COVID-19 SELF SCREENING

Check out the FPS GUIDE FOR SCHOOL that includes information on the mask policy amendments that were approved by the Fayetteville Board of Education on October 28, as well as updates on some of the procedures and protocols that we have been following since the start of the school year. 

The low rate of community spread in our area, the daily increasing number of persons being vaccinated, and the masking and social distancing protocols that we have followed have greatly reduced the numbers of positive cases and quarantines among our students and staff. This has enabled us to resume some activities. Please read the Guide for School update to see the changes.

All FPS (Fayetteville Public Schools) employees and students must complete the self-screening questions listed below before reporting to school, entering a school building, or attending a school-sponsored function.

All students/Staff must complete the self-screening questions listed below before reporting to school, entering a school building, or attending a school-sponsored function. If the answer is “yes” to any of the questions, do not come to school.

Do you have a sore throat?

Have you experienced a new loss of the sensation of taste or smell?

Have you had close* contact with a person known to be infected with COVID-19 in the previous 14 days? (Close contact is defined as being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 positive case for greater than 15 minutes; close contact can occur while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a healthcare waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case or having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on).

 Naviance Access

https://docs.google.com/docume...

Check the Naviance college visit calendar daily to see which colleges are visiting FHS. Most of the time, the representatives that visit are the same people who are reading student applications. Making contact is super important to demonstrate an interest in the college. Determine if you will apply for Early Decision (ED). Discuss the ramifications of this decision with your parent and counselor. Remember you can only apply to one ED school.  Work on college applications and observe all deadlines. For students attending the U of A - housing contracts open mid-September. Early completion of this phase of the housing contract process will guarantee that students are at the top of the list for choosing a residence hall room (this is Phase I of 4 phases for housing). Students will need to be prepared to submit a deposit of $200 to hold their place in the housing “line”. Look over your transcript and ensure all of your classes and grades are accurate. Did you take classes at a junior high school that counted for high school credit? Are they on your transcript? Make sure your GPA is accurate by using our GPA calculator. Go to Fayetteville High School>Student Resources>GPA Calculation. Notify the counselor if you have any errors that need to be corrected.


Hey Students-- your teachers have been working hard this year and putting a lot of time into making sure all students are getting the help they need. You should show some appreciation towards them for being there for you and impacting your life. If you had a teacher that impacted you, vote for them on this Google Form. We are going to be doing this once a week!  https://forms.gle/io2UcoRmYPuT6eNz8
