Great Things Are Happening In Sumter District Schools

  • School meals free of charge through October 20th.

    The Florida Department of Agriculture has given us a waiver through October 20th and has made available all school meals free of charge. Please encourage your students to take advantage of this. They will still be required to put their numbers in so that we can keep count, but no money will need to exchange hands and their accounts will not be debited. This will begin tomorrow through October 20.
