  • Meet the "Lunch Ladies"

    The cafeteria ladies at Cedar Key School may be the some of the proudest ladies you have never met. 

  • First day of school comes with warnings

    With student enrollment at Cedar Key School expected to be on the rise this year, Principal Sue Ice was under even more pressure to make sure students were clear about what's expected of them.

  • CK school staff gearing up for new year

    Teachers are planning for the students to be back in many ways. They are getting their rooms and materials ready; making instructional plans and schedules, based on assessment scores and student needs. 

    Something new this year is the theme of SHARK PRIDE that involves characteristics that we would like everyone to exhibit.

  • Police department gears up for the coming school year

    Cedar Key Police Chief Virgil Sandlin reported this week the breakdown for both local and state citations, for the month of July. 

    Local citations included: three for speeding, 14 for “Failure to pay launch pass,” 13 parking violations, five moving violations and three curfew violations (minors out after 11 p.m. without an adult).

  • School Board OKs lower millage

     Near the end of a meeting in which the School Board of Levy County approved, among other things, a tentative millage and budget for 2011-12, board member Cameron Asbell of Bronson offered up a cost-savings idea.

  • Cedar Key graduate

    Savannah Beckham Clark graduated from the College of Central Florida Adult Education Program on July 14.  She was one of 21 who received their Florida High School Diploma in ceremonies at Usher Center in Chiefland.

  • Salaries highest percentage of school board budget

        Concerns were raised last week by a Levy County School Board member regarding a high percentage of the budget going to salaries but the explanation seemed to satisfy the board.
        Robert Philpot, a former Williston Ag teacher and the newest member, said that almost 70 percent for salaries seemed disproportionate to him and asked for an explanation of that line item in the 2011/2012 proposed budget.
