News from the Health Room

  • Parents of new students: Please sign your children into Frontline (Health Portal). Updating your student’s health portal is now required before returning students to school after sickness. The Frontline app can be found on our Health hub on our Forcey website.
    You will need the following information:
  • Your student’s ID. It can be found in the FACTS account.
  • School District ID is: Forcey Christian School
  • Sick Absence: When your student is out sick you will be required to submit the health check online form on Frontline. It is currently titled: “Daily COVID-19 Health Check”. You must fill this online form for each day your student is home due to illness. You will do this even if your student does not have COVID-19. A passed heath check is required to return to school. Remember to always let your student’s teacher know your student will be absent to acquire any make up assignments. Please contact the school nurse Judith-Bickell@fcs.school  if you have any questions.
