Seniors, getting vaccinations while you are still in school can get you caught up on your shots before going to college, getting a job, or traveling abroad. Check with your healthcare provider or local health department to see if you are up to date on the recommended vaccines. The Department of Health in Clay County offers free immunizations for students through age 18. For more information call 904-529-2800.
School officials in conjunction with the County County Sheriffs Office are investigating the legitimacy of a threatening note found at Oakleaf High this morning. As always, threats are investigated and interviews are conducted to insure student and staff safety. The school will be searched as well just as a precaution but the school day will proceed without interruption. It is not uncommon for threats of various kinds to be made around the end of the school year, unfortunately. Law enforcement takes all such threats seriously and will investigate thoroughly.
