October 1, 2021 – An Important Update from Sarasota County Schools

October 1, 2021 -- 9:00 AM


Good morning families & employees,

On Friday, September 10, the school district announced the temporary extension of the suspension of field trips and nonessential visitors & volunteers on our campuses during the school day. Based on the latest COVID-19 Community Spread percentages, Sarasota County Schools will be lifting this precautionary measure effective Monday, October 4.

Starting Monday, October 4, schools will be able to schedule educationally relevant field trips and all visitors & volunteers are welcome back on campuses. Please note that all visitors & volunteers must still check-in at the front office with their photo ID/driver’s license. Prior to arriving at a school to visit or volunteer, parents and guests should refer to their individual school’s visitor and volunteering guidelines & procedures. Additionally, all volunteers must have their information up-to-date and activated with the school district’s Community Relations team before they can start volunteering.

We encourage everyone to continue to practice good health habits to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our schools and the community at-large. We will closely monitor the transmission rate of COVID-19 and will share additional updates or changes, as needed. We appreciate your continued patience and resilience as we work together to support our school communities!
