Student Accident Insurance

It is extremely important that all parents are reminded and/or made aware that FCS does not purchase or provide student accident insurance for students and FCS may not be liable for student injuries/accidents. If students are not covered under a parents’ or guardians’ major medical plan or some other medical program such as Medicaid or PeachCare, etc., and the student is not covered for injuries/ accidents, medical attention could be delayed and/or interrupted. This program is being offered as a convenience to parents and is being provided solely as a service. See the plans and premiums in the "2019-20 Student Accident Insurance" document listed below.

Security Check-in Process

Our check in policy is that parents, guardian, or listed authorized person to pick-up provide a current state issue ID upon arriving to pick up a student. All visitors must check-in to our front office using the Raptor system before entering the building with proper ID to receive a printed badge to be worn while visiting.
