The Redirecting Children's Behavior course presents non-violent strategies that foster appropriate behavior in children. The following topics are explored: assessing and building relationships, styles of interaction and results to expect, handling emotions during heat-of-the-moment exchange, diagnosing motivations that lead to misbehavior, appropriate redirection strategies, improving self-esteem, fine-tuning communication skills, and creating problem solvers.
Begins February 25th.
A student’s attitude toward being present and on time each day will be a major factor in his/her success. Poor attendance may also result in the revocation of student driving privileges. Parents are reminded that attendance information is available to them on e-SIS and on all report cards. Please monitor your child's attendance. An illness or other legitimate causes will be excused with the permission of the parent/guardian and the school principal, up to 15 days within the school year. After 15 days of absence - excused or unexcused- a student must have a doctor’s verification for all subsequent absences due to illness.

Know the Law is provided for you by PACT Prevention Coalition, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, the St. Johns County School District and the State Attorney’s Office in hope that it will become a valuable tool for parents or guardians. It is designed to help you know and understand the laws and their consequences as they apply to you. When making decisions about your behavior, you should always take the time to consider the law and weigh the consequences before you act. “Ignorance of the law” is never an acceptable excuse for bad behavior.
