District Field Trip Policy
Any person coming into the school or attending a field trip MUST have completed the School Access Form (formerly known as the Volunteer Application). There will no longer be an option to allow people to come in one time as a visitor. You only need to complete the form one time while your child is in the St. Johns County School District. Please complete the School Access Form.
Attention Parents of Current Sixth Graders
**Parents, please be aware that the State of Florida requires all rising 7th graders to have the Tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) Immunization. Please schedule your doctor’s appointment soon to receive your student’s updated Florida DH 680 Form. Once you obtain this form, please provide it to us as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition into 7th grade.

The process for approval may take up to 4 weeks, so please fill out the application sooner than later for any guests that would like to have school access. Once the application is approved, school access will be valid for three years.
