Seniors, if you have paid to attend Grad Bash we are working to issue refunds for this trip but it will take several weeks as the trip had already been paid for and we are waiting on the refund from Universal Studios. If you are under 18, checks will be issued to your primary guardian and MAILED to the address on FOCUS. If you have an address change, someone other than your primary guardian funded the trip or you are over 18 and funded the trip yourself, please e-mail Mrs. Avery at with your name, accurate address and any important information. DO NOT call the office as all information must be in writing.
The bookkeeping office will be issuing refunds for all purchased prom tickets but please be patient as this is a time consuming process. All checks will be issued to the parent/guardian and mailed to the address on Focus unless otherwise informed. If you have any address or name change requests, please e-mail Mrs. Avery at
8:30-3:30 Monday-Friday

From the Florida Department of Education:

The Florida Department of Education announced that the FortifyFL app is now LIVE. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously through the FortifyFL app or for free.

Any tips submitted via FortifyFL will be sent directly to local school and district officials along with law enforcement officers. To ensure that action steps are taken, all tips will be monitored and staff will be contacted where no action is evident. The Florida Legislature directed this tool's development in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act with the intent of increasing safety within our schools.

The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android mobile devices, is critical to ensuring all Florida schools are safe environments where students and educators can experience and share the joy of learning without fear.
