Welcome to the Home of the Falcons!
If you are still looking to purchase a yearbook, we have some great news! We have contacted our vendor and have been able to secure additional books. We will put those on sale through Schoolpay only starting Thursday morning at 9:00am. You will not be able to see the link until it goes live at 9:00am. You will be able to pick up these books at the front office during the summer hours after we receive them from the vendor. After this sale, there will not be additional books available.
Beginning Wednesday, 6/1 we are asking that students do not bring their backpacks on Wednesday and Thursday.
Medication Pickup From The Clinic
As we near the end of the school year, I would like to remind you to stop by the clinic to pick up your child’s medication. Medications may not go home with the student. Exception: If the medication order form states that student may self-carry the medication, please call the clinic at 904-547-4241 to give your student permission to take medication home.
Any medication left in the clinic after June 3 at 12:00 PM will be discarded according to policy. School policy does not allow for medication to remain in the school over the summer.

Falcon Families, Schoology is our learning management system for all learners at FCA this year. All students should have an account. The document below may be helpful if you are having trouble logging in.
Just a reminder that starting December 1st the St Johns County School District will return to normal food service operations and therefore students and staff will once again be charged for Breakfast and Lunches provided by our cafeteria. Parents will need to add funds to their child’s/children’s lunch accounts so that student will be able to purchase breakfast or lunch. Parents/Guardians can add money to the student’s account electronically by using the following link https://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/food/paypams. This is the preferred method for payment. If you don’t already have a PayPams account, you can set one up to add funds to your child’s account electronically.
Parents/Guardians may also send money in via check. (Please be sure to include the student’s name, teacher, and grade with the check, so that it is deposited to the proper student’s account.)
To see if your child qualifies for “Free or Reduced” lunch prices, online and printable applications are located on the SJCSD website at: https://www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/food/free.
Beginning Wednesday, December 1, 2021, Meal prices for Elementary (K-8) will be as follows:
Breakfast: Full Paid = $1.25
Reduced Paid = $0.30
Full Paid =$2.80
Middle School Lunch = $2.90
Reduced Paid = $0.40

District Field Trip Policy
Any person coming into the school or attending a field trip MUST have completed the School Access Form (formerly known as the Volunteer Application). There will no longer be an option to allow people to come in one time as a visitor. You only need to complete the form one time while your child is in the St. Johns County School District. 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.
FortifyFL is a website and app developed at the direction of the Florida Legislature. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or getfortifyfl.com.
