Please complete the School Access Form.
Attention Parents of Current Sixth Graders
**Parents, please be aware that the State of Florida requires all rising 7th graders to have the Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) Immunization. Please schedule your doctor’s appointment soon to receive your student’s updated Florida DH 680 Form. Once you obtain this form, please provide it to us as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition into 7th grade.
This is just a reminder that anyone (parent, guardian, friend, neighbor, aunt, uncle) must have school access to attend an event at Freedom Crossing Academy, have lunch with a student and/or attend an awards assembly. If you have not already done so, please complete the School Access Form. The process for approval may take up to 4 weeks, so please fill out the application sooner than later for any guests that would like to have school access. Once the application is approved, school access will be valid for three years.
