DAILY ANNOUNCEMENTS:

A special announcement from Dr. Oberkehr:

Good afternoon Shark Families and Students:

It is with deep regret that we must inform you of a recent loss to our school.  Theresa Stevens, Gifted Itinerant, passed today, January 18, 2019.  The loss will undoubtedly raise many questions, concerns, and feelings among our entire school community, particularly many of our students.

The St. Johns County School District has established a Crisis Response Team made up of a variety of professionals trained to respond to the needs of students and parents at a time such as this.

If you would like additional information or need assistance, please contact the St. Johns Crisis Team at 547.7754.  We are prepared to support our faculty, staff, and students here on campus and will provide any assistance necessary.

Yours truly,
Fred Oberkehr
Principal
PVHS
