COVID-19 Update March 31, 2020

 

We have just received official word from the Florida Department of Education regarding school campus closures.  The 3/31/20 press release states:

 

Today, Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran recommended that all Florida public and private K-12 school campuses extend campus closures through May 1, 2020. This recommendation follows President Donald J. Trump and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) extension of social distancing guidelines until April 30th.

 

Parents, please know that we always want to provide you with accurate and up-to-date information, which is why we waited until FDOE’s official press release.  Based on the information above, Walton County School District will continue our At-Home Education Plan and school campuses will remain closed to students through May 1st.

 

Please be sure you have visited your child’s school website to receive this week’s school-based At-Home Learning calendar.  The calendar will provide a list of resources for core subject areas.  For specific questions about curriculum, instruction, and/or technology, please refer to your child’s teachers and/or your school.  The district is continuing to work with the Florida Department of Education regarding attendance and grades, and updates will be provided soon.

 

Please remember that you can submit a question online to your school or school district by using the “Contact Us” tab on our websites.  We are also available during regular school hours by phone.  Again, thanks to everyone for being patient and understanding during this trying time.
