Summer Hours

During the summer five day work week (June 14 – July 30) the office hours for all schools and District departments for public access are 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. These hours support the District’s energy cost savings effort.

COVID-19 Dashboard Update

During the summer term, the St. Johns County School District will suspend the daily and weekly posting of COVID-19 numbers on our dashboard due to reduced number of students and staff on campus. We will re-evaluate the frequency of our postings for the next school year closer to August. Thank you.

Message from Superintendent Forson, May 14

Dear St. Johns County Schools parents and community members,

I would like to thank every family associated with the SJC school district this year. This has been a unique and challenging school year. We are in the final four weeks of the year and your support has been critical to the success students have experienced. We still have numerous high stakes assessments to administer and feel that it is imperative that we maintain our expectations and way of work until the last day of school on June 10.

We are all fatigued from the experience of the pandemic and staff members have worked tirelessly to support children in our schools. Throughout this public health crisis, we have utilized guidance and recommendations of federal, state, and local public health agencies. As we continue to follow the guidance of the CDC, I would like to share our intent moving forward so that families are informed about the school health and safety protocols for this summer and next school year.

Beginning with summer programs on June 14 and going into the 2021-2022 school year, the SJCSD will transition to the following health and safety procedures:

  • Face masks will be recommended, but optional in school and on SJCSD transportation
  • Desk shields will no longer be a mandatory feature of all classrooms but will be used as appropriate when needed for health and safety protection or instructional/assessment purposes
  • Temperature checks will no longer be a daily routine when students, staff or visitors arrive at school
  • Enhanced sanitation practices will continue in our facilities to ensure clean, healthy schools
  • Athletics, events, plays/performances, and dances will occur next school year. Protocols will be adjusted as we receive guidance from FHSAA and other state and local agencies.

We will maintain these procedures barring any future emergency orders or crisis events. Again, thank you for your continued support this school year.

Sincerely,

Tim Forson
