  • Student Recognition

    Hayley Tucker has been doing some amazing things as she learns more about our oceans and coral reefs. She recently went to Belize to learn about the coral fragmentation process with Dive N2 Life in hopes to help the coral restoration here in our own waters. She has lobbied at Capitol Hill with the National Parks Conservation Association and Dive N2 Life and she recently went to the Enterprising Women Foundation Mentoring Initiative Conference. She’s heading to Grand Cayman Islands to work on a dissertation team with Kama Cannon, was invited to do an internship this summer with Edie Fraser and will be part of a youth study group to spend a week at Dry Tortugas studying a myriad of sea life. We look forward to her sharing some of her experiences with our students as she gains knowledge and experiences that can bring awareness and help to our Florida Keys.

  • Key West High School Safety Protocols

    In our continuous efforts to make our campus safe, we are beginning new security measures on Mar. 25, the day we return from Spring Break. It is important that students have their school ID on them at all times during the school day. If they do not currently have one, they can see Sebastian in the office. Implement a one way entrance for students through the front gate during the school day. Students that enter or leave campus at any time throughout the day, must use the front gate and show their ID. Any student without an ID will have to check in through the attendance office. Students should not enter campus through the office unless they need to check in with attendance. Implement district procedure of all classroom doors remaining locked during the school day. Students should arrive on time to class. The doors will be locked during the school day. All business should be taken care of during the transition time as out of class passes will be limited. Students who enter tardy will have a 15 minute detention per our previous tardy policy. Students who do not have a class MUST report to the media center for the entire period if they remain on campus. Students should continue to report anything or anyone that seems unusual. See Something, Say Something provides adults to report to or the use of Text Tips for anonymous reporting (305-432-3311). Our SRO and SSO will continue to do campus security checks throughout the school and around the perimeter. All visitors must check in at the office.
