Principal Paul

Dear Switlik families,

It was wonderful to welcome students and parents back to campus. A special thank you goes to Coca-Cola and Verizon for providing free backpacks with supplies and Winn-Dixie for bringing enough juice and snacks to feed five hundred! In addition, the American Legion Post 154 sponsored a welcome back breakfast and Vineyard Food Truck provided treats for our staff. We are truly blessed to have such amazing community partnerships.

During the first few weeks of school, teachers and students focus on classroom procedures and behavior expectations. The routines established now will ensure your child has a safe, supportive classroom and keep the focus on learning for the rest of the school year. To learn more about our behavior expectations, play The BEs by our very own school counselor, Mr. Willis.

I hope your child had a great first day. We are off to a wonderful start and I am looking forward to an amazing year filled with learning, friendship, and fun! Have a wonderful week.


Mrs. Paul

  • School hours are 8:25-3:20
  • Parent drop off is between 8:10-8:25. Please do not arrive early as this presents a safety issue. Use both lanes and have your child/ren ready to exit your car once in the parking lot. Students can only exit in the right lane using right car doors for safety. Please be attentive to traffic. It is illegal to be on your phone while driving. Look out for our school resource officer who will be directing traffic.
  • For safety and security reasons, parents may not walk their students to class. Students that need assistance will be provided help from staff members.
  • Pickup begins at 3:20. Arriving early results in blocking our main road, US1. The Sheriffs Office does not allow this. Please arrive at or after 3:20. Be sure to have your student pickup sign displayed your dashboard. All students must be picked up by 3:30.
  • Breakfast and lunch is no longer free for all students this school year. Please be sure to complete a meal benefits application. Not only can you obtain free or reduced lunch if you qualify our school receives federal funding for additional teachers.
  • To make dismissal changes, notify the office in writing prior to 2:00 PM.
  • Regular attendance is critical for success. Excessive absences, late arrivals, and early sign-outs result in missed opportunities for learning and will negatively impact your child's education.
  • As a general procedure, parents may not sign students out of school after 2:45 PM. Should an emergency arise necessitating a sign out after 2:45 it will be managed on a case by case basis.
