Re-enrollment for 2020-2021 School Year

Re-enrollment information for our current families for the 2020-2021 school year was sent home this week. Please be sure to turn your registration materials in on time to take advantage of the early bird discount. We appreciate all our Seton families!

New Information for families currently enrolled in the Florida Empowerment Scholarship: The school will re-enroll students automatically for 2020-2021 AFTER receiving the 2020-2021 registration form and fee. Please notify Ms. Pearce, school accountant, if you are not planning to continue using the FES. If a family has a current student on the FES and would like to add a sibling who would qualify, they should not complete a SUFS online application, instead a form will be emailed to eligible families by SUFS the first week of February.

Mark Your Calendar for an informative Parent Education Presentation

On Wednesday, February 12th at 6 p.m. in the Cafeteria representatives from the Prevention Team at the David Lawrence Center will address parents about the dangers of vaping and challenges of social media. Please join this important discussion and learn ways to protect your child from these powerful negative influences that pervade today’s culture. Statistics show that vaping among tweens and early teens has increased exponentially, and more children than ever also are at risk of dangerous online behavior. Presenters will cover vaping products, physical effects on the body and risks of addiction. They also will discuss consequences of excessive screen time, online bullying and numerous popular apps that can disguise inappropriate communication.

This session is open to parents of children of all ages, but especially important for middle school parents. Please plan to come and learn about these serious issues that can affect physical, mental and spiritual health. Call 239-455-2262 for further information.
