Covid Robo Call 2/3/2021 5:30 PM
Good evening, Bluewater families, I am calling to inform you that additional cases of COVID-19 have been reported and verified in our school. At this time contact tracing related to these cases has been completed. If you have received a personal call this week then your child should return on the date specified. If you are receiving this call as your only source of communication then your child has not been identified as a close contact and should continue to come to school. Ongoing cleaning and disinfecting is occurring on campus. We do ask for you continued help in encouraging your student to practice social distancing, hand washing and other protective measures to help decrease the spread of Coronavirus.  It is also vitally important to not send your child to school if they are sick or if they have been tested for COVID-19 until the result is back and is negative.  We appreciate your help and support in these areas.  Student health and safety are our first priorities.  
If you would like more information related to Okaloosa County School District’s Safely Reopening Okaloosa Schools Plan or our response to COVID-19 in our schools, please visit our website at okaloosaschools.com.  Thank you for your continued support of Bluewater and have a great evening.
Thanks so much!!
Mrs. Klugh, Principal 

Congratulations to Mrs. Joy Robertson, our Teacher of the Year, who was named as one of the Top 3 finalists for Okaloosa County Teacher of the Year.

Back to School Powerpoint - This would be "New to Blue" for our New Families! We are so glad you are with us! Thank you for understanding that this is not a typical year. :-)  Updated-Welcome to Bluewater Video  Bluewater Basics (PP set to music)

UPDATED with video-As we conduct mandatory temperature checks, students will only be able to enter the building in one of four locations--- front Bike Rack (walkers), Parkwood 

NO walk ups signGate (walkers), Car Rider Ramp, and Bus Ramp.  We are anticipating high traffic volume on the car rider ramp at arrival and dismissal, therefore we will route traffic through the side parking lot.

Parents WILL NOT be able to park and walk their child up to the front of the building or front sidewalk. Adults should remain in their vehicles at all times. Parents of walkers should stop at the bike rack (front and back of the school) If you arrive to school in a car, you are a car rider and should proceed through the car rider line.  There will be no left turns from the side parking lot. All traffic will be routed through the car rider ramp. Thank you for helping to reduce possible exposure for our students and employees by following these guidelines.
