Summer Bridge Program for Students

We miss all of our Thunderbirds! We also miss teaching our students, but we are grateful that our school district has created a Summer Bridge Online Learning Program. Please visit https://www.okaloosaschools.com/depts-curriculum-summer-bridge-activities for some valuable learning opportunities!

The website contains materials and web resources for students in grades K-8 (ELA, Math, and ESOL) to use over the summer. 

Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year

To enroll in an Okaloosa County school, a parent/legal guardian may complete this initial online enrollment request for the school that is zoned to the student's residence. Parents may enter an address in the School Site Locator to determine their zoned school.
