Parents! We need your HELP! We have seen an increase of vandalized property in our schools this week prompted by a recent Tik Tok challenge. Please talk to your students about the severity of this destructive behavior. This causes a severe disruption for all students and staff. We appreciate your support in keeping our schools clean and safe for everyone.

Message from the Superintendent
For the health and safety of our students, families, and college and career representatives, the College and Career Fair scheduled for Thursday, August 26th at Palatka Junior Senior High School, has been cancelled. Unfortunately, due to the limited schedules of our college and career partners, we will be unable to reschedule an event for this school year. We will be exploring future alternate options for our students to participate in college and career orientation opportunities. Thank you for your understanding.
