Important School Reminders

Please remember the following rules on campus.

  • All students must wear their MASK at all times inside the building. The only exception for removing the MASK is during lunch.
  • Gator Masks and Bandanas are NOT approved.
  • If you child is exposed to someone that has tested positive for COVID-19, the Florida Department of Health will contact your family. FDOH investigates each case separately and completes contact tracing for each positive case. The school does not determine who should be quarantined.
  • Head coverings are not permitted for boys or girls – no hats, hoodies, wave caps, head wraps, sun visors, or sunglasses can be worn inside of the building. If students are caught with a head covering, it will be confiscated immediately. Students can pick up their confiscated items in the Manta Office.
