School is Back in Session – Letter from School Principals

We are very excited as we begin another school year in our beautiful city.  We are very honored and humbled to serve as principals at three of the best schools in the state.  We would like to give you some information that will help the community and schools have a safe and successful school year.  The safety of our students is our main concern while school is in session.  Due to recent events in schools throughout the nation, the safety of our students has greatly increased.  With that in mind, we are asking for your cooperation.  We have many sidewalks that people use to walk, run, and bike in Gulf Breeze.  One of those sidewalks runs behind all three of our schools.  Many residents use our schools from that sidewalk as a cut‐through to get to different areas of Highway 98.  Unfortunately, during school times, this creates a safety problem for our students.  We do not know the people that are coming on our campus and we have to be on high alert.  We are asking if you could please not use the back entrance as a cut‐through to any of the three campuses between 7:00AM – 4:00PM.  This will ensure the safety of our students and will prevent any uncomfortable situations between the community and staff.  We are so fortunate to live and work in such a great community.  Let’s work together to ensure the safety of our kids.    Sincerely, Michael Brandon, GBMS Warren Stevens, GBES Jason Weeks, GBHS
