I'm offering virtual tutoring services services for kids who need extra help academically. The platforms that I use are Google meets and zoom, whichever you prefer. I am a Certified special education teacher grades 1 to 6. I've been a private tutor and worked for the Board of education since 2005. I teach math, reading, and writing. My tutoring sessions can be 30 minutes or a full hour depending on what you want for your child. My prices vary so if you have questions about that we can discuss it privately. I am passionate about what I do and the most rewarding feeling is knowing that I made a huge difference in a child's life. If any parents need help with their child or if they know someone who does feel free to send me a private message to discuss further details.

Stingrays took their first W of the season on their own home turf!! 🏈🏈
I know we have a few years to worry about this, but what options do we have to keep Jake with Duval Charter Schools once he graduates 8th grade? There is only one high school with 7-8 Primary schools, are there any plans on building a new High School? Thank you for your time in replying.
Is there a resource or something parents can use to help their kids navigate in Schoology and Cleaver? I’m having a hard time trying to locate work and what is needing to be completed. Any assistance is greatly appreciated and I’m also waiting for someone to contact me about my sons schedule.
8th graders don’t have a scheduled to follow by?
So they know which class they have to sign in and the times to do so.

2nd Grade Parents!
As we seek to continuously improve, we have analyzed the current drop off/pick up traffic pattern. In adding two hundred students/cars we need to make an adjustment from the past. We would like for 2nd graders without middle school siblings to be dropped off & picked up in the K/1 area. This is where you turn left coming in and weave through the parking past the front door and pick up in the 2 lanes at the side of the cafe.

The side drop off & pick up is less congested and has lulls or finishes early in both the AM and the PM. Therefore we are sure it can handle the increased traffic of moving over 2nd grade. If you believe your pick up person or children would struggle with the change, you can continue to use the back loop: 2nd graders can use either arrival/pick up area we just ask that you be consistent!!

We do encourage you to make the change especially if you only have a 2nd grader at Southside. This will help us and also keep your 2nd grader without siblings safer in a less congested area.

Thank you! We hope your year is off to an amazing start!

5th graders are learning the steps of the scientific method by experimenting whether worms preferred dry or wet conditions. The students were excellent in understanding how to make observations! It has been a wormy week: first earthworms in Biology now meal worms in 5th grade! #StingrayStrong #CSUSAproud

We will move to offering seats from the waiting list on Monday as all students who have not yet attended and are not on an official COVID Stay at Home quarantine will be dropped from our enrollment at 4:30 today. Applicants can apply at southsidecharter.org

A large section of our field & play space was not usable on a day to day basis due to water & mud. What are you seeing here? Field prep for more artificial turf tripling our space for PE, socially distanced recess & athletics! Exciting progress!! We are appreciative of the continuous improvement & facilities that CSUSA helps us provide for our school. We also used some of our Duval sales tax revenue for a fresh coat of paint on our building. We are #CSUSAproud to provide a safe, clean & improved facility for our #StingrayStrong learners!

We are experiencing issues creating MySchoolBucks accounts for ALL NEW students. We have been in contact with MySchoolsBucks and they are still working on syncing accounts. This is only affecting NEW incoming students. If you are new to Southside or if you are a returning family and trying to add a new sibling, we ask you to please not attempt to create your account until we send out an email to do so. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

This is not an issue with returning family accounts, only new families.

REMINDER: Welcome back to School Kick off Meetings!
Rather than sit in the cafe and listen to updates from the admin team, we will be taking improvements from last year's pandemic experience and use them moving forward.

New families will have a link (emailed Thursday) to a zoom meeting - where we will go over opening of school, drop off/pick up, uniforms, lunch, etc. with Q & A - July 29th at 5:30pm

Returning families (and anyone who missed the new family session) will get a link to a video on July 30th going over all of the returning reminders and information about the school year!

This way "Meet the Teacher," on August 5th can be drop in during the set timeframes. "Meet the Teacher" on site will not only allow you to meet your teacher, but we will have car tag pick up, spirit shirts for sale, supply drop offs in classroom, before/aftercare sign ups, enrichment vendors and more!
