The Tdap immunization shot is required for all 7th graders and must be recorded on a Florida 680 form.  As soon as your student receives this shot, the form can be brought to the front office, faxed (904-547-7885) or emailed to Marjorie Connolly even if the student is still in 6th grade. 

Reporting Bullying

St. Johns County School District believes that all students and employees be afforded a setting that is safe, secure, and free from bullying and harassment of any kind. In compliance with Florida Statute 1006.147 and School Board Rule 3.21, the school district has adopted a comprehensive policy prohibiting bullying and harassment.

Fruit Cove's "Flight Plan" and PBIS

The 20-21 school year marks the inaugural year of “Pilot Points”. Students will be recognized for following the behavior expectations, “Flight Plan”, and earn digital points to be used to purchase rewards in our school store.  

PBIS Rewards is a program used throughout schools to promote and build a positive school culture by recognizing behaviors and actions taken by students that are responsible, respectful, and display citizenship.

Students can access their point balance and purchase from the Flyer Store by going to the Links for Students page, clicking on the Clever icon, signing in and then selecting the PBIS Rewards badge. 

Back to School

ATTENDANCE

There is no “attendance line” at FCMS.  If your student is absent, please have him/her bring a note (clearly stating the reason for the absence) to the front office when he/she returns to school.  Parents of distance learners, please email your students’ notes to our attendance clerk at [email protected].
