Volusia County Schools is now participating in a state mandated program called Fortify Florida. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or www.getfortifyfl.com.
"The release of this anonymous reporting system will assist us in helping keep our campuses safe," said chief operating officer Greg Akin. "It gives everyone an avenue to assist us in gathering critical information to prevent unsafe behaviors on our campuses."
The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, is critical to ensuring all Florida schools are safe environments where students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.

Please do your part to keep our students safe. Watch out for pedestrians and bicycles. Expect children to be walking or riding bikes to and from school or their assigned bus stop between the hours of 6am-9am and 1pm-5pm. Obey the speed limits and stay alert. Urge your friends and neighbors to use caution when driving before and after school. We must work together to keep our students safe.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is a process through which children and adults develop fundamental skills for life effectiveness, establishing positive relationships, and making responsible decisions. SEL is an intentional focus of Volusia County Schools that is strongly supported by the Superintendent. In the coming weeks, teachers will be implementing the Social Emotional Learning Program, Sanford Harmony. Students will learn how to connect with and include others to feel a sense of community, belonging, and working as a team. Focus themes include diversity, empathy, communication, problem solving and peer relationships. For more information, visit sanfordharmony.org and volusiasel.weebly.com.

Volunteering at your child's school can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. However, in the interest of protecting our students, there are certain procedures in place that must be carried out before anyone may come on campus, enter a classroom, or join a field trip.
A volunteer application must be turned in to the office at least six weeks before you can volunteer at our school or chaperone on field trips. Applications must have at least six weeks time to be processed and sent to the county office for clearance. If your name does not appear on Timbercrest's cleared volunteer list, then we are sorry to say that you may not volunteer or chaperone. There are no exceptions!
