As a state, nation and global society we are collectively implementing strategies and practices that help ensure the safety and health of our residents as we confront the challenges of COVID-19. With the health of Florida's students and teachers as the number one priority, the Florida Department of Education has made the decision to cancel the events below. Following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance specific to COVID-19 in Florida, it has been determined that this is a necessary step to reduce the risk of spreading the virus throughout our communities.
