Please visit the district homepage at http://www.stlucieschools.org where you will find the new Network and Computer Program Dashboard.  This dashboard is updated anytime there is a problem with either the district network and/or a computer program that our students or employees use.

If the status icon is “green” then the network or program is functioning properly.  If the icon is “yellow” then there is an issue causing a problem.  If the icon is “red” then that program/network is not currently working .  This dashboard is updated as soon as we detect a problem keeping our students, parents and employees informed. If there is an issue, please understand that members of our Instructional Technology Systems team are actively working to resolve the issue.

The CDC recently updated their guidance on the use of masks, specifically addressing the use of gaiter/buff style face coverings and masks with exhalation valves or vents. The CDC has stated that evaluation of gaiter/buff style face coverings is ongoing, and their effectiveness is unknown at this time. Furthermore, they have stated that masks with exhalation valves or vents should NOT be worn because virus particles can escape into the air through the vent/valve. Therefore, based on this guidance from the CDC, the Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie recommended that students and employees not use these types of masks while on school campuses or district office buildings. The school district is following this recommendation and no longer allowing these types of masks.
