    Immunization Requirements for 7th Graders

    This is important information concerning immunization requirements for students entering seventh grade. In addition to compliance with all other required immunizations, children entering, attending, or transferring to the seventh grade in Florida schools must complete one dose of tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) vaccine. Immunizations are available from your family physician and Volusia County Health Department. For more information please contact the Volusia County Health Department at 386-274-0500.

    Please note that you will not be able to pick up your 7th grade schedule until your updated blue card is turned in to the main office. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


    Regular school attendance is vital to a child's success in school. When a child is absent from school due to illness, the parent must call the school on the date of the illness to report the absence. If a child misses more than 15 days of school per year, parents must provide a doctor's note to excuse further absences due to illness. Excused absences are acceptable, but unexcused absences can become a problem.

    If a child accumulates a minimum of 15 unexcused absences within 90 days, it violates Florida's Compulsory School Attendance Law. The violation could have legal consequences for the parent and/or the student. The School Board has recently adopted more specific policies for excessive unexcused tardies. These absences will now count towards the unexcused absence count. For example, 5 unexcused will equal 1 unexcused daily absence.

    Please help us improve our students' rate of attendance. The more our children attend school, the more they learn. Contact your school social worker, teacher, or guidance counselor if you need help getting your child to attend school regularly and on-time every day.

    Your school social worker, Lissette Fernandez, is a resource for students and families. Contact your school social worker for assistance with increasing school attendance. Your school social worker can also assist you with accessing community/social service resources, counseling services, and medical insurance. Your school social worker may be contacted at (386) 322-6201 ext. 34215 or by email at

    Student Safety

    ​The Water's Edge crosswalk was improved for student safety. Pedestrian signals were installed. Students should push the button to activate the signal. They still need to wear helmets and get off their bikes and walk through the cross walk when prompted.
