Please allow me this opportunity extend a warm welcome back to our Franklin County Seahawk staff and students.

This promises to be a year filled with ever-changing opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways to be even better than we have in the past. We look forward to having the opportunity to provide your student with an engaging, meaningful, rigorous classroom environment.

Additionally, we will be offering numerous extra-curricular activities including athletics, educational clubs, performing arts groups, and a variety of other numerous organizations to encourage our Seahawks to be able to take an active role in this great Seahawk nation.

It is very important to our new administrative team to keep our parents and community members informed. Look for current Seahawk information on our school website, in the Apalachicola Times, and in the weekly newsletter that will go home with your child.

Our first event for the 2017-18 school year is Open House which will take place Thursday, August 3, from 3 to 6 pm. Come out to FCS and meet our team!

Jill Rudd is principal of the Franklin County School.
