    Cedar Key School’s new Agriculture teacher, Rachel Wetherington, thought she wanted to be a truck driver and travel America. It was her 6th grade teacher who insisted she should be a teacher, and since then, that dream has been achieved. 

  • Back-to-School safety tips from Levy DPS

    The school year will be resuming on Monday, Aug. 24 in Levy County, which means kids will be near the roadways waiting to board the bus and school zones will be activated. School buses are among the safest forms of transportation for getting children to and from school

    The Levy County Department of Public Safety would like to remind drivers, parents, and children to follow these safety tips throughout the school year:

    Parents and Children

    • Stand at least six feet away from the curb or roadway when waiting for the bus.

  • Back to school tips can save money

     Getting ready to send kids back to school can cost families some money.

    The average Florida family with children K-12 plans to spend $755.33 on electronics, apparel, shoes and other school needs, according to a recent AAA Consumer Pulse™ survey.

    The Cedar Key Safety Patrol trip to Washington, D.C. was a huge success. Students and chaperones spent three days touring our nation’s capital with schools from Bronson, Yankeetown, Williston and Chiefland. A highlight of the trip was eating out at the buffets and no one went hungry!

    We began our tour with a group picture at Grant’s Memorial which is presently being restored, along with the Capitol and the Supreme Court building. It seems all of Washington is preparing for the 2016 Inauguration early.

  • Denny Voyles set to retire after 38 years

    By Dennis Voyles

    After months of soul searching, I have decided to end my 38 year teaching career. I am very proud of our Cedar Key FFA kids' while I was their agriculture teacher and FFA advisor. Our little chapter demonstrated to the rest of the state that you don't have to come from a big school to have tremendous success. Our success was the direct result of hard work and dedication by our students.
