  • SHAC (School Health Advisory Committee)

    • All schools districts are required to have a School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) to advise their local administration and school board about health concerns.  

    • SHAC’s provide the most effective ways for schools to interact with the local community on school health issues and serve as an advocate to promote nutrition and physical activity.

    •  Recent educational programs such as AIM for Success, Nutritional Monitoring and Fitness Grams are the direct result of our FISD SHAC.

    •  FISD SHAC meets annually in August in preparation for the new school year and meets 4 times during the school year.

    •  Any parent/guardian having any questions or interested in serving on the SHAC board, please contact Amy Porter, LVN, FISD School Nurse.

  Adolescent Depression  

Adolescent depression is a disorder that affects teenagers. It leads to sadness, discouragement, and a loss of self-worth and interest in their usual activities.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

Depression can be a response to many situations and stresses. In teenagers, depressed mood is common because of:

·   The normal process of maturing and the stress that occurs with it

·   The influence of sex hormones

·   Independence conflicts with parents

It may also be a reaction to a disturbing event, such as:

·   The death of a friend or relative

·   A breakup with a boyfriend or girlfriend

·   Failure at school
