Lost and Found Location

If a member of Hawk Nation has lost an item, the lost and found is located in the front office. Lost cell phones will be placed in a secured area in the front office.

Confiscated Student Cell Phones

When a faculty member confiscates a cell phone from a student, the cell phone will be sent to the Dean's Office since it is a discipline issue. If you have question's about your child's confiscated cell phone, please reach out to Ms. Thompson.

Student IDs

Students should have their IDs. We want to encourage our students to wear their IDs on campus, but we will not prevent a student from attending class or receiving lunch if they do not have it. If students want to purchase an ID or need a temporary ID, the student can report to Student Services.

School Events:

Hispanic Heritage Month

Ms. Amaya's Spanish classes created a beautiful mural that is displayed in our hallway this month to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Testing Information:

District Progress Monitoring Assessments

Students will participate in district assessments the next two weeks to determine if students are making adequate progress throughout the year.

These assessments are very important for the school because teachers use the data to determine instructional needs for our students. Please ensure your child receives a good night's sleep during the testing window. If you have questions, please reach out wrighte@duvalschools.org.
