Superintendent Hughes stopped in to check on the Marching Braves Band. As August 17th approaches, our students continue to practice what is our new way of education; social distancing and staying hydrated with individual water containers while taking care of business. Looking good, sounding good and being good never looked so good! Thanks Mr. Muller and the Braves Band for getting us ready by getting ready!PS- Love the Mist Tent.

This is just a reminder that Student Intent Forms are still available on the scroll. If you have not completed yours, please do so at your earliest convenience. We are still in need of approximately 2,000. Completing your form allows for planning and preparation for the 2020-2021 school year. Thank you for all of your support.
Superintendent A. Russell Hughes has announced that the Walton County School District (WCSD) start date for students will change to Monday, August 17th, which represents a one-week change. All WCSD employees will still report as scheduled.
The change in start date has been made for three reasons. First, by bringing faculty and staff back as planned, the WCSD will be able to provide additional training days for employees on topics such as health, safety, and the WCSD’s new Innovative Learning Digital Academy (ILDA). Second, schools will have time to create and train with innovative strategies, such as modified block scheduling, which can help decrease traffic and exposure in schools. Finally, the WCSD has ordered additional computers, which includes a one-to-one initiative for all middle school students, and the week will allow for computer preparations, imaging, and etc.
As always, the number one priority of the WCSD is safety, and this adjustment will ensure the health, safety, and efficiency of our district and for your students. Thank you for your understanding and support.

There has been MISINFORMATION about in person graduation ceremonies for WCSD schools. They have not been cancelled to date; we still PLAN to have those graduations as rescheduled in May. There will be some restrictions and guidelines as safety is forever a priority. Look for those specifics/details from your schools or administrators the early part of next week.
