Attendance:  Absentee notes can be emailed to Mrs. Joy Hobbs at joy.hobbs@faithchristianacademy.net.  Please be aware that parents will not be notified if a note is not submitted.  It is the responsibility of the parent or student to communicate with the teachers concerning absences and make up work.

Entering Building after School Hours:  Parents picking up students after school from after care must come to the main office entrance and buzz in through the security system and identify their child and his or her grade. Parents then wait at the office window while we page the after care workers. Parents attending after school activities in the gymnasium must pick up students at the main office entrance first. The doors in the secondary wing hallway are locked at 3:30 and parents must circle the building to enter at the main office.

Medication:  Medication cannot be administered to students, nor can students use inhalers, unless a “Physician Statement of Need” is completed by your doctor.  This includes Tylenol, Advil, and all other over-the-counter medications.  Also, prescribed medication must be in its original container and have the Physician Statement of Need form completed (a prescription container is not sufficient).  Please note that this is a state regulation that we must follow without exception.

Physical Education Uniforms for Middle and High School:  Students in 6th – 12th grade who have physical education must have a ‘Faith Christian Academy’ t-shirt for gym class. It can be purchased from our “Falcon Spirit Shop” on our website www.faithchristianacademy.net.
