Start of School Postponed Until August 31st
The school calendar for 2020-2021 has been revised to include a student start date of August 31, 2020 and the extension of the school year into June 2021. The purpose of this change is to allow time for schools to build instructional schedules based on current requests by parents and provide an opportunity to monitor COVID-19 virus spread in the hope that cases will begin to decline in St. Johns County during August. More specific calendar adjustments will be made and posted on the district website (www.stjohns.k12.fl.us) as approved.

Check Out Procedures
Parents this is just a reminder, per SJCSD Policy:
If the person requesting the release of the student is a person other than a parent or guardian listed on the emergency contact form, we shall not release the student without the consent of the parent or guardian who is listed on the emergency contact form.
Dismissal changes & Early Checkouts must be completed by 2:00 PM (M ,T, TH, F) and by 1:00 PM (W).
Your respect for our dismissal policy helps maintain safety and security as we complete attendance/dismissal change/check-out reports accurately before students prepare for and move to their dismissal stations. It is often very difficult to locate students or get them ready to leave early during the last minutes prior to dismissal bell. Teachers and students are completing lessons, packing up, or on the move to dismissal stations.
Thank you for your understanding and compliance as we work together for all students’ scholastic success!
