Parent Presentation Wed. Feb. 12 at 6pm 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.

Re-enrollment for 2020-2021 School Year
Thank you to current families who have submitted re-registration materials for the 2020-2021 school year and have taken advantage of the early bird discount. If you haven’t yet re-registered, please do so as soon as possible to help us plan for a great school year ahead. “Early Bird” discount” deadline is 2/21.
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.
