We just kicked off our school’s Kids Heart Challenge! Students and staff are excited to get going on helping kids with special hearts and learning how to take care of our own. If you haven’t already, JOIN OUR TEAM at heart.org/schools or by downloading the AHA Schools app. Once you’re on the team, be sure to complete Finn’s Mission. That’s where you’ll learn the lifesaving skill of Hands-Only CPR, which when given immediately can double (even triple) a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. Other missions will help you raise funds for kids with special hearts and learn the warning signs of a stroke. As always, our students will have the opportunity to earn thank-you gifts for themselves and funds and equipment for our school. Join us today! Una vez que estés en el equipo, asegúrate de completar la misión de Finn. Ahí es donde aprenderá la habilidad para salvar vidas de la RCP solo con las manos, que cuando se administra de inmediato puede duplicar (incluso triplicar) las posibilidades de que una persona sobreviva a un paro cardíaco. Otras misiones te ayudarán a recaudar fondos para niños con corazones especiales y a conocer las señales de advertencia de un derrame cerebral. Como siempre, nuestros estudiantes tendrán la oportunidad de ganar regalos de agradecimiento para ellos mismos y fondos y equipos para nuestra escuela. Únete a nosotros hoy

🔔NEW START TIMES FOR THE 24-25 SCHOOL YEAR🔔 The Martin County School Board approved new school start times for the 2024-2025 School Year during its regular Board Meeting tonight. Florida HB 733, passed in 2023, requires school districts to comply with new middle and high school start times beginning with the 2026-2027 school year. To comply with the legislation, Martin County School District school start and end times have been adjusted for the 2024-2025 school year. Because we are implementing the new times before the mandated year (2026-2027), the District will receive funds from the Florida Department of Education, which a portion of will be used to purchase a school bus tracking system for families. This system will allow verified parents and guardians to see when the bus will arrive at its stop in the mornings and afternoons, and if there are any delays along the route. Read more about the new times, legislation and bus tracking system here: https://www.martinschools.org/article/1413309 #ALLINMartin👊
