Parents as we come together to take this new education journey, Volusia County brings Home Instruction to our students. We ask you be patient and open to this new transition in education. While nothing can replace the learning experience in the classroom, our school and curriculum has provided opportunities to transition to an online learning platform through Edgenuity Learning. Resources and guides, including those for special education and English language learners, have been developed per content area in order to continue learning at home. See more information from our new tab "Home Instruction".
The purpose of the Parent Guide is to provide you with information about the educational process and to share ways you may be meaningfully involved in your child's education. Parents are essential contributors and a major influence in their child's education and success.
School Board of Volusia County adopted a student appearance, dress and uniform code for all elementary, middle and high school students.

Deltona Middle School has implemented a new security system to help protect our students. The Visitor Management System helps track guests, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, thus providing a safer and more monitored environment for the students. When visitors, volunteers, contractors or parents check-in, they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system. We ask for your cooperation in presenting your valid state issued ID when checking in at the school.
VCS 106 Missing Student Procedure.
During and following an emergency situation, school and district officials must act quickly and follow established emergency protocols to safeguard students and staff, secure schools, and communicate accurate information in a timely manner. Parents can assist greatly by helping with preparation before the emergency.

The district will provide transportation to Deltona High School as soon as drivers can be dispatched. Parents/Guardians will be notified to report to Deltona High School as the information/meeting area and to pick-up their student(s).

School Emergency Guide for Parents
Each school district in Florida is required by state statute to provide students with the opportunity to enroll in Virutal Instruction Program (VIP). Studnets have the option of enrolling in either part-time or full-time virtual courses.

Sometimes students are afraid to speak out because they think they will be considered a snitch or be alienated or physically hurt. This is why Say Something teaches children the difference between telling on someone and saying something to get help.
Caring for each other is a value we promote in school and beyond, both in face-to-face interactions and online.
We are sending this brief guild to parents because we hope the conversation will continue at home and through the community.

Parents, we realize that sometimes you need to check your stuent out early for doctor appointments, dentist visits, etc. Due to the end of the day procedures and to ensure your student receives all classroom assignments before leaving for the day, we are unable to check a student out after 4pm (3pm for early release Wednesdays). Please do not attempt to check your stuent out after 4pm. If you need to pick your student up at dismissal, we can get a note to your student to report to Parent Pick-up at the bell. Thank you for your cooperation with this important procedure.
In an effort to assist parents, the School Board has developed a program for students to be dropped off early, called Before the Bell. For additional information please contact Melissa Baker, Before the Bell Lead
