Media Release: July 26, 2011
The St. Johns County School District is hosting a district-wide orientation on Friday, August 19 from 8 a.m. to noon.
Many schools have also scheduled special times for groups of students and their parents to come on campus prior to the district orientation date. This allows them time to get supply lists, receive class schedules and meet their teachers.
Parents are encouraged to call or visit the school website to verify any changes in orientation and open house dates.
All schools will return to their campuses on Monday, August 1 following consolidation. All district offices and schools will resume a normal five-day work week on August 8.
It is also recommended that parents register their children for school as soon as possible. Parents may access information regarding registration requirements and their child’s attendance zone by visiting the school district website at www.stjohns.k12.fl.us and clicking on the “For Parents and Students” link.
The purpose of early registration is to help reduce the number of students that need to be enrolled at the beginning of school and to help the district prepare for the appropriate number of teachers.
The 2011-2012 school year begins on Monday, August 22.
Additional information on registration and school attendance zones may be obtained from the Student Services Office at 547-7598.
