Welcome to the Seventh Grade Website!!
Welcome back! We are excited about the upcoming year.
Bus Transportation – Schools are no longer authorized to issue Bus Passes or instruct bus operators regarding bus ridership or stops. Instead, the Transportation Department is now responsible for issuing passes for a specific period of time due to extenuating circumstances. Parents may apply for these passes via the St. Johns County School District webpage under the “Transportation Department. “ Bus passes will not be available from individual schools. This means, your child is required to ride the bus in which the transportation department has assigned your child based on your home address and space on the bus. If you need to request a bus pass to change transportation please visit this link: www.stjohns.k12.fl.us/transportation. Again, schools are no longer allowed to approve change in bus transportation. All requests must be made to the above link.
New LPA Spirit Wear – The PTO is taking orders for spirit wear. you can order through their spirit wear site: http://www-lpa.stjohns.k12.fl.us/pto/spiritwear/
Required Immunizations – All rising seventh grade students are required to have a tetnus-diptheria-pertussis (Tdap) booster PRIOR to entering 7th grade. If your student needs this immunization, please obtain it and bring the updated DH680 to Liberty Pines Academy at your earliest convenience. The Health Department or your physician will update your DH680 form. You will need to obtain a new original form complete with all prior shots documented. The Health Department is located at 200 San Sebastian View, St. Augustine.
Retaking Summative Assessments – Students who score below 70% on a summative assessment are eligible to retake the test. They need to fill out the Summative Retake Contract and return it to their teacher to get their remediation work and schedule the retest.
Year-at-a-Glance Pacing Guides – The Year-at-a-Glance is a document that informs parents and students of the recommended pacing and content standards for selected courses. It includes the topics to be taught week by week each quarter and a list of instructional resources. The Year-at-a-Glance is only a recommended pacing guide; school leaders and teachers make the final decision regarding the pacing of any program of study. The classroom teacher is always the best source of information regarding content and pacing. The Year-at-a-Glance is supplied as a model of one recommended path to the completion of a course.
