COVID Reminders We are working in conjunction with the local health department to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. Therefore, we are following the guidance of the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Department of Education. We understand that being quarantined from school is a burden, but it is necessary to keep everyone safe. If your child is experiencing any symptoms of Covid, please keep him/her home! Symptoms may include any of the following: · Fever or chills · Cough · Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing · Fatigue · Muscle or body aches · Headache · New loss of taste or smell · Sore throat · Congestion or runny nose · Nausea or vomiting · Diarrhea If your child has had a Covid test and is awaiting results, please quarantine him/her UNTIL you have the results. If your child has had a positive test, please contact the health department (463-3120) and follow their guidance. If your child has been in direct contact with a positive person, he/she will need to quarantine based on the date of contact. PLEASE contact the health department (463-3120) and follow their guidance. Direct contact occurs when a person has been within six feet for at least fifteen accumulated minutes of a positive person. If your child is quarantined from school, please contact the school to ensure your child has access to his/her school work. If your child is feeling fine, please make sure he/she completes work daily. If your child is sick, he/she will be given additional time to make up work.

Happy New Year! This month's character trait is GENEROSITY. Generosity means "carefully managing my resources so I can freely give to those in need." As we move through January and beyond, let us all practice generosity in our daily lives.
This morning, the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office responded very quickly to a fire alarm being inadvertently set off on the THS campus. Although this turned out to be a non-emergency, we are grateful to our first responders for always keeping us safe! The campus has now been cleared by the GCSO, and all is well.
Unfortunately, we’ve just been notified that the City was forced to shut the water off early. They are expecting the water to be off until at least 12:30 p.m. ALL parents who are able may pick children up from both Trenton schools immediately. Please follow all regular parent pick up procedures. For high school students who drive, parents must call the school to give permission for them to check out. For those students who remain on campus, we are working on a contingency plan. We will keep you notified.
Phones lines for all schools and the district office are currently down. AT&T is working to resolve the issue.
Our district is closed next week for Thanksgiving break. Have a great holiday with your family, and stay safe!
