Revolution 2017

Please join our Facebook group:  FCMS Revolution 2017   The group is a closed group so that only students and parents involved with our trip will have access.

Students will post daily pictures and comments about what they have seen and learned so that parents can follow the trip.

Because we have to approve all requests to join the group, we are asking you to join now!

Please scroll to the bottom of the page to download and print the Medical Authorization form.  

A doctor’s signature is required on the Medical Authorization form for ALL medications (prescription and over-the-counter) your child may need including Benadryl, Tylenol, ibuprofen, dramamine, etc. If your child has food or environmental allergies, please make sure to include the necessary over-the-counter medications in addition to an epi-pen (if necessary) to treat any reactions. As chaperones have to physically carry all medication, we are requesting travel-sized OTC meds in original sealed containers. All prescription medications must be in their original prescription containers with appropriate labeling.   Students who have asthma or allergies should carry their own Epi-pen and inhaler if needed.
