    In-person instruction to safely resume Tuesday, Feb. 23

    Fort Caroline Middle will safely reopen TOMORROW for in-person learning.

    The school has been thoroughly disinfected and cleaned, and is ready to receive students and staff.

    *Some of you may have received personal instructions from the Department of Health to quarantine for additional days.

    If that is the case, please follow those instructions, and do not return to school until the conclusions of your quarantine period.

    As before, we will continue with the same stringent COVID-19 health protocols such as facial coverings on the bus and in school, desk barriers to help with social distancing, and frequent opportunities for hand washing and sanitizing.

    Please also support these efforts by following the same guidelines outside of school.

    We know the sudden transition to Duval HomeRoom posed challenges. 

    Thank you for the effort and support you showed to make the transition as smooth as possible!

    We look forward to seeing our Fort Caroline families, students, and staff once again tomorrow.
