According to school officials, anyone who drove through the Palatka Junior-Senior High and Mellon school zones in the last decade knows the familiar whistle sound. They say Mr. Jackson’s retirement left a void and that they are seeking to fill it with a dynamic personality just like his.

If you have mad whistle skills, the ability to organize traffic cone patterns, enjoy wearing fluorescent orange, a commanding personality, a love of children and want to only work a couple of hours a day, Putnam County Public Schools says this is the job for you!

Two permanent positions and one floater position are available for the upcoming school year. Interested parties can apply online HERE.
