SJCSD to hold district-wide orientation Aug. 9


The St. Johns County School District is hosting a district-wide orientation Wednesday, Aug. 9 from 8 to 11 a.m. to provide students and parents the opportunity to obtain supply lists, receive class schedules and meet teachers.

While many schools within the district have scheduled their own orientations on other dates, staff will be available at all schools Aug. 9 during the district-wide event. Parents are encouraged to call or visit the school websites to verify any changes in their respective school’s orientation and open house dates.

The district also recommends that parents register their children for school as soon as possible. Parents may access information regarding registration requirements and attendance zones 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 (904) 547-7797.

According to district officials, 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 2017-2018 school year is Thursday, Aug. 10.

The district is currently operating on summer hours from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. These hours are in effect until Friday, July 28.
