• Class of 2020 Graduation Update:

    Principal Melanie Hammer

    I am excited to share with you that a date for our graduation ceremony has been scheduled. It will be on Friday, July 24.  Again, the date is Friday, July 24.   At this time, we are still working to finalize the venue and time as well as guest information and safety protocols. This information will be available in the next few weeks, and I will send out another communication to update you.

    If you did not return textbooks and pick up personal items this week, your last chance is Thursday, June 4 during cap and gown distribution from 9 – 12.   In order to pick up your cap and gown, you must be debt-free and have paid your senior fee.  If you have any debt related questions, please email Mr. Spell at spellw1@duvalschools.org.    Anything that is left on campus after Thursday will be donated unless a special arrangement is made by emailing Ms. Hammer at hammerm@duvalschools.org.   Medications can also be picked up on Thursday during cap and gown distribution.

    Report cards will be posted in Focus on June 8.  They will no longer be mailed home.  If you do not have a Focus account, you can request one through the Duval Schools website.  Directions on how to request a Focus account can be found by clicking here.

    To recap, our graduation ceremony is July 24 and I will update you within the next couple of weeks with time, venue, guest information, and safety protocols. Thank you for your tremendous patience and support as we worked to find ways we can safely celebrate our amazing Class of 2020.
