Preparing For A New School Year!
There’s still plenty of summer vacation left, but it’s never too early to begin planning for the new school year! The first day of school will be Monday, August 15th, 2016. Below, you will find the student supply list and student handbook for the 2016-2017 school year to help you get ready.
AR Open Library
The library will be open every Thursday, from 10am-1pm this summer. Students may come, read books and take AR tests, but books may not be checked out. A parent must accompany the student at all times. Students meeting their grade level goal (see below) will enjoy a pizza party at the beginning of the school year!
Summer AR points must be earned between June 10th and August 5th. If the library dates are inconvenient, please call the main office at (863) 701-1450 to schedule a time to come to the office and take a test. August 5th is the last day your child can take a summer AR test.

The most common preventable ways babies and young children die are from drowning, preventable crib death, and being left with caretakers that have anger management issues and are not suited to caring for a child. In the past three years in Polk County, we have had 36 children die due to unsafe sleep (17) or drowning (18). Each year, these deaths account for more than 50% of all childhood deaths, both preventable and non-preventable. This is very eye opening.
DCF has a provided a great brochure for preventing the three most common causes of preventable childhood death: water safety, safe sleep, and controlling emotions/anger in caretakers.
