*The Volusia County School board voted to change school start times for next year. Elementary will be 7:50 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., Middle will be 9:30 a.m. - 4:15 p.m., High School will be 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. These times will be effective in August 2019, for the start of the 2019-20 school year.
Teachers begin escorting students to class at 7:45 and assisting them with unpacking their belongings therefore they are unable to meet with parents at this time. Administrators and staff will be checking for all visitors to sign in through the front office after 7:45 am. We appreciate your support in helping us to maintain a safe campus for all children.
As a reminder, the cafeteria opens at 7:30 am each morning and breakfast is served until 7:45. If your child wants to eat breakfast at school they need to be in the cafe before 7:45 am. In the event that a bus arrives after 7:45 am we will be sure to make accommodations for those students needing breakfast. Please do not drop students off prior to 7:30 am as there is no adult supervision until that time.

Florida KidCare is our state's free or low cost health insurance program for children under 19 years old. Your child may qualify for comprehensive health coverage through Florida KidCare, even if one or both parents work. Getting health coverage for your children before they become sick is very important.
Children with health insurance miss fewer days of school, and applying for Florida Kid Care is easy. Any family can apply, and many pay $20 or less per month to insure their children. Most pay nothing at all! Click the links for additional information.
