The following message is for staff, students, and families of Interlachen Jr-Sr High School from the Putnam County Sheriff's Office: Please be aware we have received information of a threat at Interlachen Jr-Sr High School. At this time the threat does not appear to be credible. However, during morning drop-off, parents will notice an increase in law enforcement presence that will continue throughout the day as we continue to investigate this unverified threat. We urge parents and guardians to talk to their students about the seriousness of making a written threat about a school campus. We take every threat seriously and will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. A written threat is considered a second-degree felony. Anyone with information about the threat that occurred in reference to Interlachen Jr-Sr High School is asked to contact CrimeStoppers of NE Florida at 1-888-277-8477, download the P3 app, or use the ForitifyFL app. Students can access FortifyFL on their chromebooks or at www.putnamschools.org. All tips are anonymous. There is no further information to be released at this time as to the nature of the threat. Please remember this is an active investigation.
Parents! We need your HELP! We have seen an increase of vandalized property in our schools this week prompted by a recent Tik Tok challenge. Please talk to your students about the severity of this destructive behavior. This causes a severe disruption for all students and staff. We appreciate your support in keeping our schools clean and safe for everyone.
On Tuesday, September 7th, we will combine bus routes for the following schools: Interlachen Jr-Sr High, QI Roberts Jr-Sr High, Jenkins Elementary, Melrose Elementary, and Ochwilla Elementary Schools. Please expect significant delays in pick up and drop off times. We appreciate families who choose to transport their own children, when possible. We recognize that this is an inconvenience for many families, and we thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
In an effort to keep our students and staff safe in environments where social distancing is difficult, we will require all students and staff to wear a mask when riding a school bus beginning Wednesday, September 1, 2021, until further notice. Thank you!

For the health and safety of our students, families, and college and career representatives, the College and Career Fair scheduled for Thursday, August 26th at Palatka Junior Senior High School, has been cancelled. Unfortunately, due to the limited schedules of our college and career partners, we will be unable to reschedule an event for this school year. We will be exploring future alternate options for our students to participate in college and career orientation opportunities. Thank you for your understanding.
