An Important Message from Superintendent Sherrie Raulerson (March 17, 2020):
I just received a call from the Department of Education as the Governor was making a public announcement. The Governor of Florida has mandated additional days for school closure through Tuesday, April 14, 2020, as a result of concerns relative to the COVID-19 virus.
Just a reminder, we will continue the school meals program during school closure. I will continue to update you as I get additional information. I appreciate you all and your flexibility during this very difficult and unprecedented time in our nation's history. You and your families are in my prayers. Stay healthy and be safe.
God bless you,

Lock Your Meds Campaign:
The Lock Your Meds® campaign, created by the National Family Partnership, is a universal prevention campaign intended to save lives by preventing prescription drug abuse, which is the fastest growing substance abuse problem in America. Did you know that 67% of abused medications come from family and friends, not a stranger/drug dealer or the internet? Lock Your Meds® encourages people to secure and take regular inventory of their medication so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. Many adults may be unintentional suppliers and awareness is the key to ending this preventable epidemic. Click HERE for campaign resources
