The Florida Department of Education is conducting a survey. Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA),
states must report this information to the federal government on an annual basis. All parents of children with disabilities and a current IEP (PK to 12th grade)
are invited to participate in this survey. The survey is opened from February 1, 2013 to June 30, 2013. Please visit www.esesurvey.com to complete the survey.
Shared Parental Responsibility Policy
The St. Johns County School District recognizes that in divorce cases where parents have shared parental responsibility, it is our belief and hope is parents will be
good role models and abide by the agreements in the Court approved documents. Julington Creek Elementary will no longer attempt to interpret Court documents
unless there is a restraining order preventing a parent from taking his/her child. Both parents will have equal access, unless specifically prohibited in an
official Court document, to their child and his/her educational program. Concerns about custody and visitation should be handled between the
natural parents or guardians and not involve the school in these issues.
Florida Department of Education launches Web Tool for Parents
The Florida Department of Education launched a web resource designed with parents in mind.
The Success Measures website is aimed at educating parents and students about how Florida’s curriculum
standards and assessments system combine to produce statewide measures of student success.
To utilize this new tool, visit the Florida Department of Education website
All visitors to the school during school hours must be cleared as a volunteer.
In the past the decision to have a person cleared as a "visitor" or "volunteer" was a school decision.
It is now a district-wide policy to assure that each person coming to the school during school hours be
cleared as a volunteer prior to being admitted. This includes coming to school to have lunch with a child or
for a teacher conference
Participation on Field Trips:
In order to take part in any aspect of a school's field trip, all participants must be a cleared school volunteer.
This includes processing through a national offender database and a criminal background check.
This means that a person cannot "follow the bus" to the location, or meet the group at the destination.
Thanks for supporting our students’ safety.

Nutrition Corner – February
Family Meals Provide More than Good Nutrition
Children from families that dine together are more likely to eat a balanced and healthy diet. Research shows that the importance of family mealtime also goes beyond nutrition. Family meals help solidify the family unit. Take some time and sit down with your children today; here is some advice:
Make it a priority. Put it on your schedule just as you would with a appointment, soccer game or parent-teacher night. It’s true that the modern family has many commitments, so if the dinner hour is not convenient, meet up for breakfast each morning. It’s eating together that’s important, not the time and place.
Make it simple. On weekends, shop and cook together. Make meals to freeze and reheat during the hectic week ahead. Quick meals can be healthy meals–try baked potatoes or yams topped with veggies, tomato sauce, beans and cheese. Make individual pizzas made with whole grain English muffins, veggies, tomato sauce and cheese. Stop off at your local supermarket and pick up a roasted chicken, salad and fruit for dessert.
Make it pleasant. Mealtime should be a time to eat and have pleasant conversation. Don’t allow distractions like the television or take phone calls during this time. Discuss your day, the meal itself or plans for an upcoming event. Although it is a good time to teach proper dining behaviors and family dining rules, keep discipline to a minimum. Use this time to enjoy each other’s company and a healthy meal.
