Superintendent A. Russell Hughes has developed a Re-opening Plan for the Walton County School District (WCSD). The plan, which was created through a Re-opening Task Force which began meeting in May, has been vetted by local experts, including the Florida Department of Health and Walton County Emergency Management. The plan is a lengthy, internal document written as directions for employees, but this FAQ sheet has been written specifically with parents and students in mind. As you read over this handout, please remember the COVID-19 situation is a fluid one. Because the re-opening of schools is a local decision, we will continue to watch and learn from several data points, including COVID-19 numbers and locations, CDC and state guidelines, and Florida’s Re-open Plan, so there may be revisions to the plan as the summer progresses. If you have any questions or concerns, please send a text to 850.204.9667 or call 850.892.1100.
