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, at 445-1222.

There is a print option but the digital format is easier to read so I suggest teachers and families bookmark and view the menus on their smart devices. MealViewer Menus Promo

This means that students are not allowed to leave campus during the lunch hour. Additionally, food from outside vendors may not be brought onto campus unless previously approved by the ALLPS administration.

**Parents, please remember to send some form of water bottle with your child.  Our water fountains have been turned off due to the virus, but the bottle fill still works.  They can refill their bottle, it doesn't have to be an expensive water bottle.  thank you for all you do.**

For those who have never heard of the FHS Glass Slipper Prom Project... it is a non-profit school-district-based entity dedicated to promoting confidence in young women and providing a unique opportunity where one might not otherwise exist. Through the help of monetary and in-kind donations, as well as countless volunteer hours, the Project distributes formal wear, shoes, accessories, and prom tickets to financially challenged young men and women, so that they may attend this milestone event with assurance. The project could use some updating of accessory inventory, especially SHOES, so please consider donating any formal shoes, jewelry, wraps, or purses to the Glass Slipper Project. You can drop your items off at the Outback office on the ALLPS Campus

 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 in 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
