• To our retired Duval County Public School Employees,

    As a district, we recognize the value of the enormous amount of knowledge and experience that leave our buildings each year due to retirement.  THANK YOU for your service and dedication to the students of this great district.

    After years of alarm clocks and deadlines, you have reached a place where you can finally get some rest and, while you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor, we would like to sincerely request you consider just a little more REST within our district once more. Please consider joining the Retired Educator & Support Team (R.E.S.T.). There are always schools in our district that need involvement from someone like you.

    At this time, we would like to solicit your assistance in volunteering in our schools to ensure we have the best volunteers, mentors, tutors and even greeters in our buildings every day.  Would you please consider giving just one hour each week (or more if you choose) to one of our schools that need you most??? 

    As you make your decision, we’d like to welcome you to attend one of the REST workshops listed below to learn the specifics regarding the work that’s being done in schools, state requirements, and the ways (big or small) you can help!

    • Tuesday, August 28, 2018, 10am-Noon
    • Thursday, September 6, 2018, 10am-Noon 
    • Wednesday, September 13, 2018, 10am-Noon

    To register for one of our workshops and if you have any questions or concerns, please email or call (904) 390-2960.  I sincerely hope you’ll attend one of the planned informational sessions, and consider volunteering at one of our schools.  We hope to see you soon!
