Parents, Guardians, and Visitors: For the safety of our students, you will be asked to present and scan your ID when you are checking students in or out and also when you are visiting the campus for any other reason.
It is important to know that we cannot release certain information during a lockdown in order to protect children and school board employees. In most cases of a real emergency, local law enforcement dictates the information that can and cannot be released for the safety of the public as they work along with the Washington County School Board Officials. In these situations, we must remember that the protection of students and school board employees is paramount to the release of information.
It is important for all teachers, faculty, staff, parents, and the public know the following:

Florida Emergency Management
The Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program would allow some school employees to become qualified and trained to carry guns on school campuses as part of an effort to safeguard schools. The program is part of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Safety Act. It is named after Aaron Feis, a coach who died when shielding students during the Feb. 14 school shooting.
Due to the Washington County School Board contracting with the Washington County Sheriff's Department to have full-time School Resource Officers assigned to every school in the district, the Washington County School Board has opted to not participate in the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program.
