Happy Nurse's day!

May 6, 2020

Please help us wish Nurse Debbie a very happy Nurse's Day! She is the kindest, most patient person on this planet. It doesn't matter if it's the sniffles, a band-aid or an emergency, she handles every child (and occasional teacher) with compassion, love and grace. We love you Nurse Debbie and we are sorry we can't honor you in person today.

Happy Staff Appreciation Day 2! Today we spotlight our cooler than cool 3rd, 4th, ESE and Special Area Teachers. They are unbelievable in their dedication to our FES Wildcats, and of course special thanks to Mrs. Saltsman for another great video.

Superintendent A. Russell Hughes shares his monthly video update for May, 2020!
In this video, Superintendent Hughes offers a message of thanks and encouragement for our district and community heroes who are all working tirelessly to do what is best for the students of Walton County School District during a challenging and uncertain time in the history of our country.
Mr. Hughes also addresses important issues of concern to parents, students and families at this time, and shares a special message for our graduating Seniors!

FES loves our teachers and staff. Today we want to thank and honor our Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade Teachers. We love you all! Thank you Mrs. Saltsman for these incredible videos

?COVID-19 Update April 29, 2020


The Walton County School District would like to share three updates.

First, food distribution is being moved to Wednesdays in the month of May. Please plan to pick up food from our five locations or receive food from one of our 70 bus stops on these Wednesdays in May - May 6, 13, 20, and 27. Food sites will remain the same - Paxton, Mossy Head, Maude Saunders Elementary, Walton Middle, and Freeport High School. Times will remain the same for sites (9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.), and bus routes will also remain the same.

Next, Superintendent A. Russell Hughes has prepared an update for parents and students in the form of his monthly video. The video will be released later this week. Please look for it, and watch for details about academics, graduation, and more.

Finally, the Walton County School District has a new communication feature. Parents, students, and other stakeholders can text questions to 850-204-9667. Through this new number, the district will be able to provide a quick response for any issues or concerns that may occur with virtual learning. Text submissions are immediate, and a staff member should respond to you quickly.
