Elementary Health Screenings
Please read this very important letter regarding upcoming student health screenings for elementary students at LPA.
The first two weeks of October are Disability History and Awareness Weeks! Section 1003.4205, Florida Statutes, entitled Disability History and Awareness Instruction, was signed into law in 2008. It requires school districts to designate the first two weeks of October as Disability History Awareness Weeks and also promotes providing instruction for students in all public schools to expand student knowledge, understanding, and awareness of individuals with disabilities, disability history, and the disability rights movement.
As we have done in the past, we would like to display artwork from ESE students during our School Board meeting on October 8, 2019. Artwork will be displayed throughout the District office lobby, 3rd floor hallway and in the School Board auditorium. We would like to display at least one piece of art from EVERY school. Your assistance is appreciated.
Please send artwork to the attention of Carlyn Whitty in the ESE Dept./District Office. All art should be labeled with student’s first name ONLY, teacher name and school. Please do not include student last names (initials are okay – i.e., Carlyn W., Mrs. Jones’ class, Ketterlinus Elementary School). Please be sure the labels are placed on the front of the artwork. Artwork should be sent no later than October 1, 2019, but the sooner the better so we can have it displayed for longer. Sculptures, pottery, etc., are also welcomed. These items can be picked up from your school. ALL artwork will be returned after the board meeting.
If your school would like your ESE students to perform at the Board meeting, Please contact the Community Relations Dept. A school will be chosen on a first come, first served basis. Cunningham Creek and St. Augustine High School performed a few years ago. We were so happy to see our ESE students showcase their talents.

Information from the St. John’s County Public Library System
The Bartram Trail Branch Library, 60 Davis Pond Boulevard, Fruit Cove Florida is set to temporarily close at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday April 20, 2019.
The 14,980 square foot library, which opened in 1997, will undergo a project to replace all fire sprinkler pipes and fixtures throughout the building and library exterior. Because this project addresses the entire building’s fire suppression system, the branch must remain closed to staff, volunteers, and patrons through its duration. Work is anticipated to last 4-4.5 months with an expected reopen date in September, 2019.
Dan Markus, Bartram Trail Branch Manager, says, “We understand the disruption in local service this closure will cause. We hope our patrons will take advantage of the great electronic collections we offer for borrowing and use the temporary location we have arranged to check out physical items.”
During the closure, patrons will be able to request items and check them out from a temporary storefront library located at St. Johns County Recreation and Parks Northwest Office at Mills Field 1721 Race Track Road. Located less than 2 miles north of the library branch, this temporary location will provide convenient access for patrons to borrow items they have requested and return items during open hours.
The temporary storefront library will be open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patrons are advised that an after-hours book drop will not be provided.
Student Cell Phone Policy: Cell phones must be off and out of sight at all times. Cell phones must remain in the backpacks of students in grades K-4, and in the lockers of students in grades 5-8. Cell phones may NOT be on one’s person during school hours.
