Frequently Asked Questions
When will school start again?
After careful consideration and continued conversation with public health experts and officials at the Florida Department of Education, the decision was been made to close all St. Lucie Public Schools through Tuesday, April 14, 2020. As of now, students are due back to school on April 15th.
What is the district doing to clean the schools?
Every school is undergoing a deep cleaning. This consists of using hospital grade disinfectants that are approved to kill COVID19/coronavirus and other disease-causing germs.
Where can my child get food during the school closures?
Currently, the “grab and go meals” are available from 11am-1pm, Monday through Friday, at CA Moore Elementary, Northport K8 and Treasure Coast High School. These bagged meals contain breakfast and lunch items and are being distributed at the bus loops of those schools. Children must be present to receive a meal.
What will happen with my child’s education if schools don’t re-open soon?
In the event that schools are closed beyond March 27th, the Office of Teaching and Learning has developed an Instructional Continuity/On-Line Learning Plan. This plan will allow for your child to continue instruction from home beginning March 30th if needed. In the interim, we have identified resources on our coronavirus webpage students can access now if they would like.
What if I don’t have WIFI or a computer?
Comcast is opening its Xfinity Network nationally for FREE for two months. For students who don’t have Wi-Fi at home, this will help them receive online instruction if necessary. Find out more at: internetessentials.com
Also, the district has a survey available that is enabling us to determine which families may need to borrow a laptop computer so that students can continue learning at home. Access the Survey
We will be communicating directly with families about how we will get the digital devices checked out to you.
What should my family be doing to stay safe?
We encourage all families to follow the guidance of experts and continue to implement the universal health precautions such as washing your hands and covering your cough. Furthermore, the latest recommendations from the CDC recommend that you should not attend any events where there are more 10 people and simply stay home if possible.
Please make your messaging to your children positive and solutions-focused. Make children feel empowered by sharing proactive steps that you are taking as a family.
Remind your children that you are being diligent about washing hands, avoiding crowds, and taking care of your health. Try to maintain structure, including reading with your children every day. It’s important that children know there is some movement toward a solution within your family and in the community.
What about graduation in May or my child’s prom which is scheduled for April?
