    New Changes in 2019-2020

    New Schools!

    Palm Avenue Elementary is now Palm Avenue Middle School, and James A. Forrest Elementary is to become the district’s sixth school on the first day of school, August 12, 2019.

    New Attendance Boundaries!

    To balance the number of students attending each of the six schools, attendance boundaries have changed. A letter was mailed to you in the spring to inform you where your children will attend school next year.

    All sixth grade students will be attending either Palm Avenue Middle School or Thomas Jefferson Middle School based on these new boundaries. 

    Increased Instructional Time!

    Students will attend school 20 additional minutes a day beginning the first day of school, August 12, 2019. All students should be at school by 8:00 am each day.
