In accordance with the Safer at Home Order issued by Governor Ron DeSantis, Superintendent Malcolm Thomas has announced that the employees of The Escambia County School District will remain at home, working remotely, effective Friday, April 3, 2020 through May 1, 2020.

 

Superintendent Thomas notes, “Employees who support distance learning or perform essential functions may be authorized to have limited access to district facilities, as approved by their supervisor.  All employees should continue to follow directions provided by their immediate supervisors.”

 

“It is important for parents to be aware that the Instructional Continuity Plan for students will continue. Instructional services will be provided by teachers working from home,” stated Superintendent Thomas.

 

Parents and guardians will be able to leave voice mail messages on school telephone lines which will be monitored.  Calls will be returned by school staff members as quickly as possible.

 

Access to all Escambia County School District facilities will be closed to the public, effective Friday, April 3, 2020.  However, Escambia School District Community Feeding Programs will continue, with sites subject to consolidation and change.  

 

Superintendent Thomas will continue to provide updates to families and staff by automated telephone messages.  Parents and employees are encouraged to monitor district media sources, including the district website.
