Please know that if this is the case, your child will be removed from class and will need to be picked up within an hour.

  • If your children have had prolonged exposure to someone known to have COVID-19 or someone in the household is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, please do not send them to school. Contact the administration at your child’s school first to determine how to proceed.
  • The Florida Department of Health - Clay County will continue to conduct all contact tracing and notify individuals if they need to quarantine.
