District Orientation Day and Early Registration 2016-2017

The St. Johns County School District is hosting a districtwide orientation on Tuesday, August 9 from 8 a.m. to noon. Orientation is an opportunity for students and parents to get supply lists, receive class schedules, and meet teachers.

While many schools have scheduled orientations on other dates and times, staff will be available at all schools on Tuesday, August 9 from 8 a.m. to noon. Parents are encouraged to call or visit the school website to verify any changes in orientation and open house dates.

It is also recommended that parents register their children for school as soon as possible. Parents may access information regarding registration requirements and their child’s attendance zone by visiting the school district website at and clicking on the “Families” tab. Additional information on registration and school attendance zones may be obtained from the Student Services Office at 547-7797.

The purpose of early registration is to help reduce the number of students who need to be enrolled at the beginning of school and to help the district prepare for the appropriate number of teachers.

The first day of class for the 2016-2017 school year is Wednesday, August 10.

The district, including schools, are currently operating on summer hours 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. These summer hours are in effect until Friday, July 29.

Important Change to Student Code of Conduct!

Videos, Photographs, Recordings (NEW)

Students, parents and visitors are not allowed to videotape, photograph or make audio recordings while on school premises except for Open House and public events (including plays, musicals, fairs, fundraiser raisers, and awards/recognitions). All recording devices must be turned off at school. The purpose of this general rule is to foster an appropriate educational environment, prevent unwarranted disclosure of student images and information, and to comply with the requirements of the negotiated agreement with the St. Johns Education Association. (Student Code of Conduct, page 53.)
