COVID Reminders

We are working in conjunction with the local health department to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. Therefore, we are following the guidance of the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Department of Education. We understand that being quarantined from school is a burden, but it is necessary to keep everyone safe.

If your child is experiencing any symptoms of Covid, please keep him/her home!

Symptoms may include any of the following:

· Fever or chills
· Cough
· Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
· Fatigue
· Muscle or body aches
· Headache
· New loss of taste or smell
· Sore throat
· Congestion or runny nose
· Nausea or vomiting
· Diarrhea

If your child has had a Covid test and is awaiting results, please quarantine him/her UNTIL you have the results.

If your child has had a positive test, please contact the health department (463-3120) and follow their guidance.

If your child has been in direct contact with a positive person, he/she will need to quarantine based on the date of contact. PLEASE contact the health department (463-3120) and follow their guidance. Direct contact occurs when a person has been within six feet for at least fifteen accumulated minutes of a positive person.

If your child is quarantined from school, please contact the school to ensure your child has access to his/her school work. If your child is feeling fine, please make sure he/she completes work daily. If your child is sick, he/she will be given additional time to make up work.

Reminder: Please complete the ESE Parent Survey via the link below or the paper copy that was sent home in February.

Each year, the Florida Department of Education surveys parents of children with an individual education plan (IEP) to determine how well your child's school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child's education. All states must collect data as a part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The web-based survey opens Feb 1, 2021, or you can request a paper survey from your child's school. Your feedback is important in helping state and local school systems continue improving educational programs for children with special needs. Thank you for participating!

Congratulations to our District Teacher of the Year Brad Surrency and District Employee of the Year Cindy Driggers!

Happy New Year! This month's character trait is GENEROSITY. Generosity means "carefully managing my resources so I can freely give to those in need." As we move through January and beyond, let us all practice generosity in our daily lives.

12/16/2020

This morning, the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office responded very quickly to a fire alarm being inadvertently set off on the THS campus. Although this turned out to be a non-emergency, we are grateful to our first responders for always keeping us safe! The campus has now been cleared by the GCSO, and all is well.

12/07/2020

We are sorry for the inconvenience of closing Trenton schools early today. However, there are times when situations change, requiring an adjustment to our plan. We want to thank parents, our school teachers and staff, bus drivers, and administrators for quickly and efficiently responding to today’s situation to ensure all students were safely delivered home.

We will be on the boil water notice for tomorrow; therefore, we are encouraging all students to bring water bottles from home! We will have emergency drinking supplies at the schools as needed.

12/07/2020

~~FOR TRENTON SCHOOLS ONLY~~
Buses will begin running their routes at 12 pm today. Students will be arriving home approximately ONE HOUR earlier than originally planned. IF your elementary child is a bus rider and NO ONE WILL be home to receive him or her early, please call the school immediately so we can have a plan for each child. All drivers have been instructed to keep elementary students on the bus if no one is at home to receive them. We will run each route a second time if needed to deliver all children home safely. Your child’s safety is our number one priority.

If your child is normally a car rider, he or she will be at the school in the regular designated area for parent pick up starting at noon. If your child is a walker, he or she will be released at noon.
